Lacrosse is the fastest growing team sport in the United States, with the number of players tripling from 2001 to 2010. With its increasing popularity come a greater variety of options for lacrosse gear. From kids in youth leagues to professionals, lacrosse players need superior quality equipment at competitive prices. Lax World offers an enormous range of apparel options at a variety of price points, making it the best place to find premium lacrosse gear.
Under Armour lacrosse apparel is one of the most popular and quickly growing brands available for lacrosse players. From its beginning, as a company inspired to make t-shirts from moisture wicking synthetic fabrics, Under Armour has become one of the most sought-after brands in the sporting world.
Under Armour Lacrosse Heads
Finding the perfect lacrosse head is essential for maintaining a high level of play. Sifting through the many available options can be a daunting task. Consider the angle, width, weight, and stiffness of a lacrosse head before making your final selection. First, consider the league rules for potential heads. Under Armour makes universal heads, which are permitted at all levels of play, as well as those specifically permitted only for NCAA play. Lax World labels heads by legality, making it easy to choose the appropriate ones for you.
Some of the best Under Armour Heads are the Under Armour Charge Head and the Charge U Head. Players should consider all of these factors when choosing a lacrosse head from Under Armour. Much of this is personal preference; as a player, it is best to go with a head that feels most natural for you.
Technology continues to change the range of materials available for lacrosse shafts. Lax World offers several options of Under Armour shafts. From complete sticks for beginner players (such as the Under Armour Spectre) to high performance shafts for elite players, choosing a quality shaft is important. Alloy shafts like the Under Armour Charge SC-TI are lightweight but very durable, while scandium shafts such as the Under Armour SC1X have the greatest strength-to-weight ratio in the sport. Choose a shaft that provides the best feel and control for you. As with lacrosse heads, this is largely a matter of personal preference.
