When we got the Nike Vapor, two Pros here kept these for themselves on the first shipment. Bottom line, these are simply awesome. The Nike Vapor has Super lightweight construction. The vapor is stiff and durable. This head should be priced at the elite level of $100, but at $85 it explains why this head is a top choice.

I play midfield and am not sure if I am going to take face offs this year (probably not) but which head should I get the Lakota or the Vapor?
| - pricilla 3/15/14 reply|
I play defense and this head rocks. It is stiff but also really light weight. The open face shape allows easy passing and catching. Only downside is if you play LSM and take face offs it will warp quickly. But i recommend a million times to any defensive player!

I play attack and I bought this last year, warps really easily especially if you're playing in the summer. Otherwise its a solid head, not to hard to string but hard to get a nice pocket on it because it is pretty wide so it lets the ball move a little bit

If you loved the lakota, this head is even better. It is the fixed/remade version that improves everything that was wrong with the lakota. It has a larger face face, making everything easier. it has the same hold if not better than the Lakota.

its not pinched at all, it warps easily, and its hard to string even though it has a lot of holes
| - EvergreenLax 8/10/13 reply|
Nike suggested not to face off with the head because of the stiffness. Any head can be fixed by putting it in 200ish degree water for 10 minutes. Plastic has amazing memory. And you can string any pocket in this head as i have done it without a problem. And not all good heads are pinched.

lakota definitely i play middie and it has a really good face shape, a lot of string holes so it is super easy to string

It doesn't have to be pinched... There are plenty other heads that are not pinched

I just got theis head at my local store, and the scoop is amazing. The bottom rail looks like it could be easily breakable given the size of the sidewall holes. Looks like a sick head though. The employee at the store said that this and the Stallion are pretty much the same thing. (i couldnt decide between stallion and vapor)

The Vapor is wider, so it would probably be nice for crease attack.

Yeah dude this is a pretty stiff head.

This head isn't only good for attack. This head is almost identical to the lakota and is great for most positions besides face offs.
| - Gvipers 1/11/13 reply|
this head is an attackmen head it fits a low pocket placement so its actually a lot different than the lakota or stallion fits a different purpose.

This head is sick. just got it at a local store with kelly green nike signs, strung it with a mid high pocket. i do faceoffs so i need to know if this will b ok for that
| - stevethehonchat 11/25/12 reply|
I think the sidewall shape on this is different than the Lakota and would favor a lower sitting pocket better than the Lakota but correct me if I'm wrong.
| - utley26 12/01/12 reply|
its more of a mid or high pocket. it has more of the stallion head design
| - Vivacity 11/20/12 reply|
hahaha no it just has a matte finish on the color, like the noz x
| - stoneylax#4 12/28/12 reply|
It actually doesn't have a matte finish. I was kind of disappointed when I figured that out.
| - stoneylax#4 11/09/12 reply|
why isn't the swoosh white on the black head? that design is sick
| - VClax1 11/07/12 reply|
this looks exactly like the stx stallion...
