I’m a box guy, so it was my pleasure to put Under Armour’s Spectre Box Lacrosse Rib Guards (also called kidney pads) to the test during my current box lacrosse season. These are the same rib guards that most NLL players are wearing. I tried them out in two box games for this review. The Spectre’s fit very nicely. […]
Below is a special word from our buds at Stylin’ Strings: Here at Stylin’ Strings Lacrosse we love the holidays and every year we make a nice movie to celebrate the joyous time of year. This year we decided to tell a little Laxmas story of a nice young man that only wanted one thing for […]

So when a learned about Firethreads and their rubber grip print on them, I thought they could be just for show. Lorne at Firethreads got a hold of Lacrosse Playground and challenged me to try their Stringers Pack: The Stringers Pack includes […]
The gents at Streaker Sports are always cranking out great retro looks for all sports. Selfishly, we are loving these two lacrosse looks. One traditional and one “Endless Summer” look. Let us know what you think on our Instagram (@lacrosseplayground). Give them a shout on theirs (@streakersports).
Remember those “pinky” practice lax balls back in the day? Oh wait, you were probably born after 1995. Swax Lax has invented something of a dream to us lacrosse players, a ball that feels the same, weighs the same, but doesn’t have that fearful pain when the ball hits you; and let me tell you, they’ve […]

They make carbon fiber shafts with controlled flex points in shafts have been shown to improve shot speed (we’ll give you a full review when we get our hands on one soon). I caught up with National Sales Manager, […]
