• Nike Alpha U Lacrosse Head

    The Nike Alpha U Lacrosse Head is designed to be a lightweight, durable head that was made for defensive minded players. When Nike built the enormously popular Lakota head, they built it with offensive players in mind. With the Alpha, the goal was to build a head as iconic as the Lakota has become, but something that the defense can call their own. Boy, did they ever deliver. Read More

  • This Year in Gear 2013

    This year was a big year for some companies and it was the end for some others (cough cough Reebok and Easton).  But across the board 2013 was a big year for gear where all the companies brought new products to the market some of which really took off and some of which did not.

  • Maverik Metrik

    Breaking into the lacrosse market is not easy but Maverik Lacrosse has found a way to succeed in the evolving world of lacrosse.

This year Maverik released their newest and most anticipated head of the year; The Metrik. Read More

  • What's In My Lacrosse Bag?

    By Chris Tomaselli, ComLax Franklin, MA

    My game day stick is an STX Professor in white, strung with white 10D Jimalax hard mesh and black striker shooters on a black Nike Sprint SC Shaft. I dig this setup because of the shape of the Professor. Its long throat gives me the ability to have a long pocket, which is perfect for attack because I can cradle the ball up against the shooters when shooting or down in the throat when dodging. The Nike Sprint SC Shaft is one of my all-time favorite shafts. It has a very unique shape with smooth edges, while still feeling angular. The grip is very comparable to a Warrior Krypto Pro Diamond. I’ve been using it for almost a year and it really doesn’t dent. That’s legit considering the hacks I give and take in practices and games. Read More
