  • Custom Stringing Now Available at Lax World

    Brine Clutch 3 Custom String

    You know that feeling of buying a new lacrosse head?

    It's an awesome feeling for sure. The best feeling is when you get the head and you open it. You look at the sidewall holes. You inspect the throat. You give it a nice squeeze and bend... but something's just... missing.

    The something that's missing? An expertly crafted string job. Starting today, you no longer have to feel that gaping void. You can now get custom stringing at Lax World and save yourself the trouble of taking it to a person who strings or even more tediously...stringing it yourself (cue horror music).

    You can choose from our amazing selection of lacrosse heads and get a great string job for a little extra.

    Just imagine it: Red East Coast Dyes Hero Mesh in a Nike CEO head with Red East Coast Dyes Hero String Sidewalls. Add in a nice mid pocket and you've got an awesome head perfect for tearing through defenses.

    It doesn't just have to be limited to East Coast Dyes or even the color red. If you can dream it, you can build it.

    Why don't you try it out today? Go on over to our heads section and get your custom head just in time for the lacrosse season.

    Stay tuned, we're going to be having goalie and women's heads with the ability for custom stringing real soon.

  • New East Coast Dyes Mirage Head Review

    After taking the Mesh game by storm, we have recently seen East Coast Dyes (ECD) start expanding their brand to numerous other marketable aspects of the game. From their Carbon Shafts to the Mint balls, no matter what these guys seem to cook up in their new and improved “lab”, the people seem to be foaming at the mouth for a chance to get their hands on these game changing products. Now, yet again, ECD has given the game a whole new product too praise and (in my situation) analyze. We present, The ECD Mirage Lacrosse Head!

    Mirage Lacrosse HeadNamed after the risqué evil assistant, turned good, from the Box-office smash “The Incredibles” (2004) OR the optical allusion caused by atmospheric conditions (you be the judge) the Mirage Head by ECD is the newest item in their product line. It is offered at three different purchasing prices, which are entirely dependent on the stringing options; ranging from $89.99-$129.99. Aside from being reasonably priced, there are a few other aspects about the Mirage that make it unique.

    When I first took a peak at this universal head, I noticed the narrow pinch, much like you would see in an STX head. As the throat merges into the side wall you can notice a small flair right before the sidewall continues. This is caused by the dropped offset you can see a bit more clearly when you look at the head from the side. I’ve started to notice this in a few other newly manufactured heads. This offset not only increases the strength in the base of the Mirage but also narrows the flex-points in the head itself. When bending it, as it would be on a hard check or a face-off, you can see most of the flex happening near/at the flair I mentioned earlier. I think this will decrease the amount of cracks and snaps in the sidewall.

    The Mirage also has a matte finish, another trend you are seeing with a lot of the new models. However, as I looked closer, the inner part of the head has a gloss to it until you reach the peach of the head where it arches back into the matte covering. The peak also seems to be flattened a little more than the usual head I see. I thought this would make groundballs a little more difficult but after my first scoop, I was proven wrong. Quick, clean GB and in the pocket, just like my favorite Cold Stone Creamery Scooper Lady (S/O Lauren).

    As for the rest of the head, it is pretty user friendly. There are enough port holes to string any style you can imaging and they’ve even added their own custom “Mirage” ball-stop (shiny of course).

    All in all, this isn’t a bad first go for the ECD Team. As customers continue to buy this product, we will obviously learn more about the longevity of the head but as of now, I’d have no problem recommending this head to any player looking to hit the field. So go pick one up, hit the field, tickle some twine, rip some cheese, or even throw a few rusty-gates if you have to! Then, come back and tell me what YOU thought of it.

  • 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

  • A Closer Look: STX Duel Head

    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.

    STX Duel Lacrosse Head

    What was just described is none other than a lacrosse face-off. The lacrosse face-off is one of the most important parts of the game. Possession of the ball can lead to a quick goal, shifting the momentum of the game and stealing the fervor of leading team. Continue reading

  • A Beginner's Guide to Necessary Lacrosse Equipment

    Have you ever wondered where lacrosse got its origins? Its origins date as far back as a Native American game played by young warriors to prepare them for battle when games could have 100 to 1,000 players. Today's version has 10 players per team and requires specific safety gear. Beginners should consider the following equipment to get started in Lacrosse:

    Gloves: Hits on the hands are common in beginner lacrosse, so well padded lacrosse gloves are a must.

    Arm and Elbow Pads: Protect the arms from opponents' slashing lacrosse sticks. Look for well padded but flexible dense foam arm pads for maximum protection.

    Forearm Pads: These pads fill the gap between the gloves and the arm pads.

    Cleats: High-top lacrosse cleats are designed to stay on during a game (versus cleats from other sports).

    Shoulder Pads: These pads should fully protect the shoulders and also extend hard padding down the chest.

    Rib Pads: Some players wear these to protect their ribs and kidneys from poke checks; however, some players find them to be too bulky.

    Lacrosse Balls: Stock up on the hard rubber balls used in lacrosse for practice sessions.

    Helmet: Protecting your head is crucial in this tough sport with lots of contact.

    Mouth Guard: Protect the teeth from errant elbows and sticks; buy one that can attach to the helmet.

    Groin Protection: Also known as a "cup", is vital for male players.

    Lacrosse Stick: Beginner sticks have large, wide heads with soft mesh for easier catching; however, they offer less control and durability than an aluminum stick with hard mesh. Advanced lacrosse sticks have a titanium shaft, premium head, hard mesh and custom stringing.

    Optional Items

    Lacrosse Goal and Net: It’s always good to have your own lacrosse goal on hand so you can practice during your own free time.

    Lacrosse Shooting Targets: Start learning to aim your shot and hit your corners with a Target to put in front of your goal.

    You can find all of these products at Lax World today!

  • When Should I Buy a Complete Stick vs. Building My Own?

    The decision to buy or build your lacrosse stick may seem not important or simple, but there are many different factors that impact when it is best to purchase the complete stick vs. building one from different pieces.

    Limiting Building at the Beginning

    Building a complete lacrosse stick may not be as time consuming as it was in past generations, but it is still a process that requires knowledge of the game and all of the rules. Beginners should avoid building a lacrosse stick personally and opt for a completed stick. Continue reading
