Earlier today, I was thrilled to learn how many of our readers know about lacrosse heads. This afternoon, I posted an ambiguous picture of a head on one of our Instagram accounts. Within 20 seconds, Twittmer_103 said, “Troque #easy.” Pretty close, but no rubber cigar! Two minutes later, hh_ryans correctly stated, “Torque 3.”

Inspired, I took more pics to highlight the Canuck stringing job (I gave it more of a mid-to-high pocket – as opposed to a gator trap all the way at the top. Details about the special wax mesh will come at a later date) and 2013 Gait Scandal Shaft. View the full album on our Facebook page.

Inside Stringing Tabs with inverted V shape provides the narrowest allowable pocket for NCAA play. Drop-V Scoop channels the pocket allowing for improved accuracy and quicker release point.

You are looking at the new 2013 Gait Scandal shaft. This handle has undeniable strength. It might be due to the combination of 7055 and Scandium. But just because it’s strong doesn’t mean it has to be dense and heavy. The Scandal weighs only 130g making it one of the lightest shafts on the market.

More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
