Epoch Gen 6 X30 REVIEW

X30 Photo


Epoch Gen 6 X30 The extreme bevel done on a carbon handle better than ever before? We think so this year the Torque Box used to reduce weight was extremely helpful to the X series as they have a little more material to create the grip. Looking to replace your Gait Ice for 2016, the […]

StringKing Mark I head & A7150 shaft

image2


Most will agree that StringKing lived up to the hype when they released the Metal and Metal Plus shafts before the holidays. I thought they were at the highest they could possibly want to go, until they teased “New Year, New Products” on Instagram. Shortly thereafter, we got our first glimpses of the Mark I and […]

RedLine Anatomy Mark IV Release Review

0129161347


RedLine is an emerging company that is shooting to be a big time competitor on the shaft market. The RedLine Anatomy Mark IV is a strong contender for top of the line shafts in the 2016 season. If you are a carbon fiber fan but like the sharper edges of some metal shaft models the […]

Wolf Athletics Phantom Shaft Review (60″ and 30″)

IMG_9881


Wolf Athletic’s first shaft, the Ghost is was made of bulletproof polycarbonate plastic, making it very flexible (read my review of the Ghost and it’s optional LED Lax kit here). With their second offering, the Phantom, Wolf Athletic took the polycarbonate shell of the Ghost and inserted a seamless Grade 9 Titanium rod inside of […]

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

focus


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 […]

East Coast Dyes Carbon Shaft

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 […]

String King Metal Plus Review

skshaft3_


String King gives us a handle a little thicker than the Metal but still lighter that just about everything else that is on the market. There may be a couple new shafts coming out that could be a gram or two lighter but, by last years numbers, it’s only number two to the Metal.   […]

STX Duel Review

STX Duel Cover (1)


STX spent a lot of time developing a faceoff head in order to do it right. The STX Duel was hyped quite a bit on social media and so far it has lived up to the test. In the early 2000’s STX used a throat plug with the Liquid with mixed results, the throat plug […]

STX Hammer 500 Lacrosse Shaft Equipment Review

hammer 500


Carbon Defensive shafts have been tried before by many companies in the game of lacrosse and typically, it has gone horribly. For a long time I believed there was no real solution for an aggressive pole who wants the carbon feel, the STX Hammer 500 is one solution that truly lives up to the promise and name. Read More…
