Gear Review: 2012 Brine Lacrosse Shafts, F 55 Friction and Scandium


Brine has created a mainstay for developing quality shafts for the everyday lacrosse fanatic. The brand never drifts away from its true roots and collectively embodies the components of a well-configured equipment line. Its shafts are second to none, and today you have the opportunity to learn about two new handles thanks to Lacrosse Playground’s Gear Review.

For a closer look, visit the Lacrosse Playground Facebook Page.

The F 55 Friction has been described as a “tapeless triumph.” The shaft features durable, lasting grip in the form of a light candy cane diamond coated friction, so you don’t have to use tape. This is key for the player who wants superior grip in all weather conditions. In addition, the scandium alloy construction is light and strong, and has bold curves for enhanced grip.


The Scandium handle really stands-out. Unlike the aforementioned shaft, the scandium handle is texture-free for players who want a natural grip feel. Undoubtedly, the added electric colorway makes this shaft hot. It’s available in an array of explosive tones to match any player’s style.
