  • A Closer Look: The STX Hammer 500

    This week we take a closer look at the STX Hammer 500 Head.

     

    In the game of lacrosse, having a superior defense is essential. A solid defense can win championships or put you in a sharp losing streak. It makes sense because after all, you can’t defend a castle if there’s no wall. Defensemen are that wall. Defensemen with great lacrosse equipment make a better wall. Defensemen with the new STX Hammer 500 are the best wall.

    The STX Hammer 500 lacrosse head gives you the strength and power you need to absolutely decimate the opposing team and disintegrate any chances of the offense scoring a goal. Continue reading

    In this weeks product review, we take a look at the STX Duel Head.

     

    Two competitors enter a small circle in the middle of the field. They lock eyes, staring each other down with a steely gaze. They get into position. At the mark, they charge towards a small ball in the center. The competitors are locked in a battle for the ball. Their allies stand around them. After a few seconds of might and fight, one emerges with the ball. This possession has changed the tide of the game completely.

    While a successful draw depends on many factors, the performance of your head is a major component due to the direct contact with the ball. Any elite midfielder knows that equipment plays a major role in winning the draw. When looking for a head matching the talents of an elite player, nothing can compare to the performance of the new Exult 500. Created by STX, the Exult 500 provides three major strengths, stiffness of the sidewalls, C-channel technology, and a pinched design. Continue reading

  • Guest Post: 2015 East Coast Dyes Carbon

    We are happy to have East Coast Dyes join us for a guest post; today they are giving us some in-depth information on their 2015 Carbon Shafts. Carbon Shafts, along with many of the East Coast Dyes products, remain some of our top products at Laxworld.com.

     

     

    2015 East Coast Dyes Carbon

     

    In 2014, East Coast Dyes exploded into the lacrosse handle market with a composite handle called the ECD Carbon and in 2015 the latest line of Carbons have taken the lacrosse world by storm. The 2015 Carbon included the features players know and love, such as a unique and comfortable shape, a textured grip, and Flex5 Technology, along with an improved strength to weight ratio.

    The key to the Carbon’s success is the advanced composite materials and manufacturing processes, which allow the Carbon to flex in a controlled manner when shooting. This controlled flex provides an unmatched snap and feel to every shot and leads to increased shot velocity. On the East Coast Dyes 10 point flex scale; the Carbon is a comfortable Flex5, making the Carbon a great option for those who are used to the feel of traditional alloy handles.

    As an added bonus to the performance attributes, the Carbon is also one of the strongest composite handles in lacrosse. When testing the Carbon and benchmarking it against other handles in the industry, it was quickly noticed that forces, which would typically dent or break some alloy handles, simply bounced off of the Carbon leaving no traceable damage. This type of testing was directly relatable to a handle receiving a check during game play.

    Even with all of these characteristics, the most important aspect of the Carbon is the value. The 30” Carbon is available for $99.99, which is a steal for a handle that performs as good, if not better than many of the higher priced competitors.
