ECD Focus Shaft Review

focus

ECD_Carbon


I’ve never had a carbon lacrosse shaft in my life. Actually, since my high school years, I never used anything but a Gait 803 or an STX Sci-Ti. I loved them because they were the perfect combination of thickness and sandpaper grip. When I found out I was getting an ECD Carbon Shaft, I thought I was getting […]
