This was the hottest new addition to the shaft world in 2012 and is poised to sell through again in 2013. The reason is that you will not find a better strength to weigh ratio for the money on any other shaft. It feels like a much more expensive Ice handle but is priced way below. For youth players and advancing offensive players, this was the premium choice. The value is five star and the simple Swoosh graphic complete this winner from Nike Lacrosse.

its really light my friend has it as his b-up stick

Very good shaft for its price. I've had it for this season and it only has a small dent near the throat of the head. Although it has a small dent it is only $65. Overall I recommend this for any player out there, just be prepared for 1 or more dents by the end of the season.

bought this maybe a month and a half ago as a cheap practice shaft. Once it came in i fell in love just from throwing around in the back yard, and after two or three practices i turned turned it into my gamer. amazingly light, very durable, as i take plenty of checks while attacking. I highly recommend.

I bought two of these one in yellow one in black I have a STX Proton U on them and it is amazing the shaft looks sick and the head is really amazing even for middie.

I use this and a proton power and it works great! This shaft is so light and sleek. The paint does chip fairly easy but who really cares right? Just play the game. There arent any dents either. The sandblast texture is AWSOME! I love it no tape what so ever and feels great without gloves. Id definetly recomend this to any one. Oh one thing i didnt like it the end cap. I took it off and put a gait 1/4 tape hard cap on it.

I have had mine for a few weeks and it bent significantly in my last game. How do I go about it in order to get a new shaft?
| - laxgoalie6969 4/12/13 reply|
You should either contact lax.com or if they say contact nike.

i have been playing with this shaft for about 2 seasons,fall ball and current outdoor season, and it has not dented but has scratched a lot! also when you slap check someone you will most likely get the color of their stick on yours but it wont come off. still a great strong light shaft though.

nike and stx work together for lacrosse. the stallion and lakota are 99% the same. the stallion will fit.

I know this sounds really strange, but i was In Dick's the other day, and i was playign around with a yellow Vandal (I currently own a black/white vandal) and my current vandal seems to feel like a warrior krypto diamond, but the grip on the yellow vandal felt like a krypotolyte. Same year vandal, just different color and grip. Maybe the same on the website if you order it in yellow
| - alau828 3/31/13 reply|
Hey the difference in the grip and shaft is because the yellow and black doesn't have a grip while all the others do if you watch throne of string on YouTube he tells u the difference. It is only that color way.

Too soft a shaft for advanced/elite level play. Bent 2 shafts in two weeks, both on shots blocked by long poles. Great shot for speed, but the lightness without added strengthening alloys leaves the shaft too weak. Great for younger level play, but if you are playing HS lacrosse, this won't hold up. Might work for attack players, but not for heavy middie play

How much different is this from the vapor? In weight, strength and feel.
| - $nipe$ 1/14/13 reply|
Pretty much any head should fit any shaft but you may have to drill a hole in the shaft to make it fit.
| - jselb10 12/28/12 reply|
just makin sure a lakota will fit on this right?
