This stick has an angular upturn from its sidewall to scoop for increased ball retention, accuracy and feel. The elastomer over mold reduces ball rattle within the head, and promotes more accurate passing and shooting.
Excellent Buy!!Review by Coach & Proud Dad posted on 1/26/14
I purchased two of these sticks on special. This is an excellent Intermediate to Advanced Stick. It’s a very good value at $100 (and at more than a 30% discount I had to buy two).
I have played lacrosse, and now many moons later I coach middle school girls (and coach a mini-camp for high school girls). First, sticks and stick technology do make a difference. Once again, STX has come through. I bought this stick for my daughter who was moving from a beginners stick to an intermediate stick. After very little breaking in (after all, that’s why STX stringing tab technology was created; so you wouldn’t have to spend hours breaking a stick in), it threw and caught better than expected.
This is a very good choice for a high school or even college at a budget price.
