STX Alliance 85 Lacrosse Shafts
In Stock
  • Maximize velocity and snap on shots; precision on feeds; and improved control and ball feel when handling.

    Number (85, 135, 160) equates to pressure in pounds needed to bend the handle.135 is mid-flex.

    Built with "Flex Technology", exclusive to STX, which optimizes performance by matching a specific flex level to a player's style and field position.

    Made by True Temper from lightweight and high strength composite materials .

    Concave octagon profile with super fine texture for best handle feel.
The 85 is for players shooting the ball over 60 MPH who want to add 10% with carbon flex technology. Just like a golf club that hits longer, when you let it rip, you will feel the snap in your shot. The shaft remains stiff for ground balls and regular play until you release the stored energy with a crank from the outside. Used by advanced youth and high school players nationwide.

I had a friend bust this same stick in a practice by getting checked, I also heard that almost every player in my area that had this sick has gotten it broken.

look - 6/27/14 reply

Look,I shoot a 85 with my vapor, and I shoot a 95 with this, so yes it does make a difference. I'm also 6'2 250, so if your a Lil guy, it's not going to make a significant difference.
Durability - 6/12/14 reply

I think I should get the alliance 60 but on the stx web page it says it has a low durability I want a shaft that will last should i get the 85 or 60 I'm 91 pounds 5'2
alliance - 6/02/14 reply

It doesnt matter how big you are or how hard you shoot. This shaft is for advanced players. collegiate level, high school varsity. if you have to ask what shaft you need to get then the answer to your question is "not this shaft". You kids these days are all worried about the gear you have. it doesn't matter what you play with it's how you play. -Annoyed Adult
Alliance - 4/24/14 reply

Ok guys, if you are in high school, shoot pretty quickly and play attack then get this stick. Not the 60.

alliance - 9/26/13 reply

Don't get this shaft it is a 4 out of 10 on my scale the grip wears, its heavy and colors fade. Also it is very price the only reason I got one is because I got it for free from my friend.
HEAVY???!!!! - 6/06/14 reply

dude if this shaft is heavy to you u shouldn't even be playing lacrosse!
hit the gym - 9/16/13 reply

I'm only 4"10 but I have been clocked at 68
thats a joke - 11/05/13 reply

haha someone needs o fix their timer
grip - 8/08/13 reply

Does this thing have grip on it. If so is it a full sandpaper grip that goes all the way down or is it really grippy all the way down.
color - 7/23/13 reply

what color should i get?
shot speed - 6/30/13 reply

Do you really need a 60 mph shot? I got 58.7 mph, so I'm like right there, but my main question is just whether or not your shot speed really matters with this.
(no subject) - 7/03/13 reply

DUDE. 60 is not fast at all.
(no subject) - 6/13/13 reply

im 13 4,10 83 lbs and shoot 66mph both hands, am i good?
(no subject) - 7/03/13 reply

66 mph is not really a fast shot. But your speed of shot doesnt make you good. Its your accuracy when you shoot and your stick skills that make you good. I shot 81 but I need better stick skills to be amazing
(no subject) - 8/20/13 reply

WHAT im 13 6 foot 170.... 80 mph. Shot speed doesn't mean your good though
Grip? - 6/10/13 reply

Is this shaft grippy like scandium pro grip or slick like a krypto pro diamond need answers thanks
(no subject) - 6/22/13 reply

more like a krypto pro diamond
Love this shaft! - 4/28/13 reply

This shaft is awesome. You can feel it bend in your shot. It has nice amount of grip to and is much lighter than my old stx swizzle scandium. Bought and old one in black from my friend. The paint was a little chipped but it had no dents and he had got it last summer and he plays on multiple teams all year round. From my experience, it does not dent. Just ordered another white one for my new evo 4 x I just got. If you are in middle school or high school you should get this. If you are in high school and you have a very hard shot get the 135. And if you play college I don't recommend the 160 because I heard those don't really bend at all. The only way you can break this shaft is if you snap it from a really hard shot. Please reply if you have any questions.
(no subject) - 5/19/13 reply

ZachB should i get this or the sci ti surgeon? cant decide
(no subject) - 3/30/13 reply

the best head on the market right now is the rabil x. It is perfect and you can string it really easily.
Strength - 3/01/13 reply

Will this shaft dent? A lot of people have told me it can and a lot say it can't, it can only break. Someone just tell me straight up if it can or can't
(no subject) - 6/07/13 reply

It doesn't dent but it does chip. I have one and the chipping is very minor where it is chipped. Its pretty much just a thin piece of the outside skinned off, nothing that affects your play at all.
stx alliance - 2/24/13 reply

I have this shaft and its amazing, and yes the flex makes it more accurate a you get more speed.
(no subject) - 12/29/12 reply

does the flex of the shaft change your accuracy at all?
(no subject) - 10/19/12 reply

If im gonna get a super power what Stx shaft should I get to go with it. I play Middie and attack and can shoot high 60s
(no subject) - 8/06/12 reply

I am a middie and i also sometimes play attack i slash alot and i am thinking of getting this. i am 5'2 and shoot upper 50s lower 60s. should i get this? also does it make your slashes hurt more?
(no subject) - 12/31/12 reply

IF you slash alot i wouldnt, but if you check alot then it gives you more whip in the swing
Like the shaft but.... - 7/16/12 reply

I am a very physical attackman, i slash and get slashed a lot and i bought this shaft thinking i could get my shot faster and have a durable stick. the shot faster was true and i did always feel the stick flex but in my 4th game using this stick i checked a d-pole and it broke in half. Luckily you get a 60 day warranty with this
(no subject) - 7/24/12 reply

#Edit# 6 month warranty not 60 days
dont buy - 7/09/12 reply

don't like it that much, its all hype
(no subject) - 6/10/12 reply

(no subject) - 6/06/12 reply

(no subject) - 6/06/12 reply

shafts - 6/04/12 reply

idk how fast i shoot - 5/29/12 reply

i am not really sure how fast i shoot but it doesn't seem slow.. even if you are pretty strong would this be good or would i be better off with the 135...
85 - 5/28/12 reply

If you shoot under the mid 70's range, you should get this over any other alliance.
Dents - 5/24/12 reply

Does this shaft dent?
(no subject) - 5/29/12 reply

they can but not very often
(no subject) - 6/03/12 reply

No. They rarely break too
(no subject) - 5/08/12 reply

i play middi and im 5'6 and i rip low 70s high 60s what shaft should i get the 85 or 130
get the 160 - 5/06/12 reply

alright i shoot 94 and im 15 ..last year i could only shoot mid 70s low 80s ..if you attack get the 85 for accuracy and feel..middies get the 160 for power and the end it doesnt matter what stick you have but you have to have great technique.
(no subject) - 5/02/12 reply

is the grip good on this or am i gonna find myself putting tape on it?
(no subject) - 3/25/12 reply

if i shoot high 50's to mid 60's is this right for me plus i play attack and am a finesse/power player not stronly either one which alliance is best for me?
(no subject) - 3/10/12 reply

im 5'8 shoot in upper 50's lower 60's is this the shaft for me?
(no subject) - 4/30/12 reply

your 5'8 and only shooting the 50? im like 5 3 and i shoot mid 60 lows 70.. maybe you should hit the gym
(no subject) - 3/08/12 reply

i was at my lax practice and a kid had this this shaft was covered in dents but not smal ones huge ones i don't think it that strong
(no subject) - 5/13/12 reply

composite cant dent
(no subject) - 6/03/12 reply

If it dented it would break. Composite and fiber material cant dent it is not metal. It rarely breaks . Your thinking of the wrong shaft
(no subject) - 2/19/12 reply

im looking for an unbiased opinion for a new shaft i already have a super power ive tried it out and i love it. but i need a shaft, i went from pole to x attackman, im not looking for lightness but something that wont dent easily and wont snap or shatter. any answer would be appreciated thanks.
gait ice - 4/19/12 reply

its light and cheap, had it for 2 years and hasn't dented
(no subject) - 5/27/12 reply

the Easton stealth scandium is great, ive been playing with it for 2 years not one dent and it hasent bent a lot and its great for the price
Gait ice - 5/29/12 reply

Mine has at least 10 dents. this was my second year with it
85 or 135 - 12/16/11 reply

Im 13 im an attackman not that fast but a pretty good shot and with some speed and I dont know witch one i should get
85 - 1/31/12 reply

takes less pounds of force to bend. you'll get more snap on your shot
85 or 135 - 12/11/11 reply

im 15 and am 5'5' and 120 lbs i shoot upper 60's lower 70's it the 85 right for me im more of a finesse player with in close shots and speed dodges?
(no subject) - 6/03/12 reply

(no subject) - 12/04/11 reply

Is it light???
(no subject) - 1/21/12 reply

Yeah, pretty light
BEAST - 11/11/11 reply

Amaziong shaft, adds tons of power and snap on shots and feeds! However, if you buy the wrong flex its going to blow. If your like 18 and bench 250, the 85 probably isnt for you. Oh yeah, and shafts dont have whip haha.
(no subject) - 11/03/11 reply

such a cool shaft
Good Shaft - 10/26/11 reply

I know the shaft is very expensive, but my friend's dad came up with the technology for this shaft, and i used it last summer. You can really feel the shaft bend, but it is very durable and will last you longer than most other shafts. This shaft is Especially good if you are a pole or LSM
(no subject) - 10/27/11 reply

Sorry bud this shaft isn't offered in a pole. These are short sticks only right now since these FLEX levels help your offensive skills
whip - 10/26/11 reply

Guys, this shaft does not add or take away whip. This shaft ADDS power, snap, precision and ball feel.
(no subject) - 12/29/11 reply

does in affect the speed of release
(no subject) - 1/21/12 reply

I think so
(no subject) - 10/21/11 reply

I have it and its not my favorite. i didnt consider it extremely light, but it had good feel, but decent grip. compared to the sc-ti and it added whip for me, my shots were way off compared when i switched to my gait ice. i think i should have gone with the medium one instead i wish i liked it better because its a really great looking shaft and cool technology
whip - 10/17/11 reply

this shaft does take away whip, i won one of these, the 135, at a kyle harrison camp and it takes away some of the whip
(no subject) - 10/15/11 reply

because of the "flex" it takes away whip which can be a good or bad thing. its extremely light and i have no clue how durable it will be
(no subject) - 10/15/11 reply

umm shafts do not have whip
(no subject) - 10/19/11 reply

it takes away whip cause it flex which makes it release later in your shot. good try though
