Burd Wood Works Lacrosse Sticks

IMG_3063


After getting to spend a few field days with Burd’s wooden attack shaft out here in sunny Southern California, I’ve come to love wooden handles. The Burd stick I’m testing doesn’t have the optional wax coating, which gave it a true old-school-style feel to the stick. It’s made from hickory, so you you can be darn […]

StringKing Metal Review

SKMetal1


StringKing challenged both me and Rob to review their Metal shafts (here’s Rob’s take).  The Metal weighs in at only 130 grams, making it the lightest shaft on the market, and when I picked it up for the first time, I was shocked by how light it felt. Even after taping it up and putting […]

ECD Focus Shaft Review

ECD surprised me when I heard that they were going to enter into the metal shaft game. Most companies would normally choose to focus on what they have already brought to the table, then try and make it better. Instead, ECD decided to throw everything off the table and start from scratch. Bold move, but […]
