  • Lacrosse Stick FAQ Pt II

    lacrosse stick

    The stick - It's the most important piece of equipment when it comes to lacrosse. However, just like the hockey stick, baseball bat, tennis racquet, and golf club, the lacrosse stick has greatly evolved as technology has improved since the inception of the game. Many of the basics of the lacrosse stick, from the shaft material to the difference between men's and women's sticks, were covered in Part I of our FAQs. This FAQ installment will focus more on the technology behind the lacrosse stick, as well as what type of stick you need based on your skill set.

    What material are lacrosse shafts typically made of?

    Materials typically vary by what position you play. For instance, attacker and midfielder sticks are most commonly made of titanium, aluminum alloy, and composite materials. Defender shafts and goalie shafts are made of scandium, titanium, and aluminum alloy. So what style of shaft is best for you, being that there's some crossover between positions? It depends. Titanium shafts are the strongest, so it's the ideal material for a defender attempting to check the opposition off the ball. However, aluminum alloy is considered the lightest material, which would suit an attacker or a goaltender. Above all, the type of shaft you choose should come down to personal preference.

    What type of pocket should I get with my stick - deep or shallow?

    Again, the answer to this question depends on what position you play. Deeper pockets allow for better ball control and make it more difficult for defenders to check you off the ball, so ball control players who either do a lot of short passing or dodging typically select deeper pocket sticks. Shallow pockets allow for a fast release and are usually selected by more fast-break type players.

    I'm a new lacrosse player - what type of stick should I buy?

    For anyone that's new to the game, the first priority should be learning how to catch and throw properly. The sticks that allow beginners to do this best are those that have wide heads and throat areas. Soft mesh is also much more forgiving than hard mesh, thereby making it easier to catch the ball. However, lacrosse players shouldn't always play with wide heads - narrower head designs allow players to get more power on their shots, which is certainly an advantage after you've mastered the fundamentals.

    How much do lacrosse sticks cost?

    That depends on a lot of factors, but generally speaking, lacrosse sticks cost anywhere between $35 and $150. If you're a beginner player, we'd recommend springing for a less expensive stick because you're likely just going to be using it to hone the basic skills. As you get better and become a more serious player, you'll need the appropriate stick to perform up to your level - that's when you shouldn't be afraid to pony up bigger money for a better stick. Some of our favorite beginner sticks are the STX Av8 Complete Stick and the Maverik Bad Boy Complete Stick.

    Can lacrosse sticks be brought as carry-on luggage on airplanes?

    Yes, TSA says lacrosse sticks are OK to bring on a plane as a carry-on, so players that travel for games and tournaments shouldn't worry about checking it with the airline before security. Those who are paying upwards of $100 for a lacrosse stick may prefer carrying the equipment on, as it reduces the risk of lost or stolen items.
