The Gait Scandal shaft is beefier than all the other Gait line. It is almost a cross between a box shaft and a super durable field shaft. This is an awesome stick prized for toughness by defensive middies and those who are not afraid to run through ground balls. This is the work horse of the Gait line.

It is a good shaft. It is really light and has a nice shape. The only problems with the shaft are that no heads fit on it. you have to drill a hole on the other side.

Bought it about 2/3 through my season and throughout the season there have been lots of dents. Its unbelievable I have never seen a shaft dent some much in so little time. I would rather get a Tri kor sub 5 which is great and light or an epoch c30 dragonfly

I would not buy this shaft. My friend broke his tonight and it was only his second game playing with it.

Really Pat... yes it broke on the second game and that sucks but this shaft was the lightest and best shaft i have owned up until it snapped in half..

Thinking of buying a second stick for lacrosse I already have a Brine F-22 with a Warrior Evo 3 head and Was thinking of getting this Gait Scandal with an STX Proton Power head and I was wondering if the Proton will fit on this shaft?

Hey everyone, I work at a lacrosse retail store in Illinois and one of the Gait Reps came into work to explain a little more about the Gait items. The Scandal and the Ice came into the conversation and here is what he had to say about the two...
Gait Ice - One of the lightest shafts on the market, very strong and the grip that is seen on the Ice is created from an acid being coated on the shaft itself, giving the shaft a grippy but smooth feel to it.
Gait Scandal - The Scandal and the Ice are almost identical to each other. The same material is used to make this shaft. The Scandal has a smooth grip to it, unlike the ice. This is because there is no acid coated to the shaft. The Scandal is the lightest of the two, by 6 grams.
I hope this can help decide to pick either of the two shafts: the Ice or the Scandal.

Thanks for the in depth comparison man! So basically the only difference is that the Ice is more grippy than the Scandal?
| - APhan 9/16/13 reply|
How long did it last you? And does it dent easily like the Gait Ice?
