I bought this head lightley used for 35 bucks and an STX Professor. It was worth it. I like the head, But after 2 seasons of hard use it is very warped and losing its stiffness. I would not reccomend it for its price. go for the Tank or Revo 3X.
| - eNuts 8/19/14 reply|
I tried this head during summer league.
Excellent for ground balls, OK stiffness for checks, absolute crap for carrying the ball up field (zero pinch).

I have this head and have gone through 2 of them. This is is very good at first and I was very in love. I used this for my high school season. I also then used these heads in the summer with my club team. Let me just say that they are both destroyed. They are both very flimsy and very much warped. I would recommend this head if it was durable enough to play with in the heat. I mean most heads a re going to get ruined in the head but this head is bad. I am currently considering the stallion u, metrik u, optik u, or i am gonna hold off for that Tank ( I've heard amazing things).

I have this head and it is great beside the fact that it completely warped to one side. Now I don't know if it was because I was unaware that you were supposed to put screws in both holes but it didn't warp until after a whole spring season and a few days in summer league. I'm gonna try the Brine Cyber X next because it's cheaper and looks like a great head.
| - herman 7 6/10/14 reply|
it is more of a defense head so you wouldn't want it on attack
| - laxbrojoe7 5/11/14 reply|
Great lacrosse head, i have had it for a season and it has held up very well. the scoop hasn't flattened, hasn't warped, and throws a solid check. Very durable too, my dad accidentally ran it over with his jeep and it was perfectly fine and i was throwing with it 30 minutes later.
| - ajkelley1012 4/28/14 reply|
Some people say that this isn't good for LSM, but I love, it throws a nice check, wins all GBs and has a good catching area for a long pole.
| - LSM60 4/17/14 reply|
Is the head able to pinch without messing with the integrity I play midfield and attack and a friend of mine is wanting to sell it to me
| - koop 4/01/14 reply|
x10 is garbage use the hammer i have two that is use all the time. best defensive head out there
| - NDCC 3/29/14 reply|
This the stallion or warrior evo for defense?
| - ben 4/06/14 reply|
If you plan on poke checking then I suggest the hammer. But if you are just planning on playing lsm or not poke checking then get the stallion ( but I suggest the surgeon instead ) and if you are just looking for a cheap decent head the evo would do fine.
| - JCotty21 2/27/14 reply|
I got this head a few weeks ago and strung it up with a String King H1 pocket, best head and pocket I've ever used. I would recommend this head to every defensemen. I'd also recommend the String King pocket. It's awesome!
| - AustinHolgate 12/04/13 reply|
Used the hammer for the first week of practice in college. Scoop is completely flattened from poke checks and it is starting to warp to one side. Wouldn't recommend it if you like to poke or throw hard checks.
| - ianian002 11/30/13 reply|
It does pinch in easily. My friend has one and the bottom sidewall (the one with the holes) got very pinched. A ball wont come out if it is upside down. I know nothing about the Cyber X or Revo 3, but if you poke a lot I wouldn't really recommend this. Kind of disappointed in STX for this one. Hope that helped.
| - SeanC 11/18/13 reply|
This head is defnpinitely better than the cyber. My brother has the cyber and I have the hammer so I have compared the two. The hammer is definitely more stiffer.
| - JCotty 1/22/14 reply|
How have the two held up? I'm deciding between the Hammer U and the Cyber. I'm worried that the Hammer will warp.
| - JCotty21 1/22/14 reply|
How are the two holding up? I'm worried that the Hammer isn't very durable. Not sure which one I should get.
| - defense_player 8/27/13 reply|
i need to know which one is better, there are only good comments o. the cyber x, but there is good and bad comments on the hammer u, and there is no comments on the revo 3. which one is better?!?!
| - dman10hh 10/03/13 reply|
I would go with the revo 3. I had two hammers and one warped after the first poke check. I have an evo 4x right now and I love it. The evo 4x looks pretty similar to the revo 3. I don't know anything about the cyber x. Hope this helps.
| - dman10hh 7/17/13 reply|
I was pleased with the hammer for the most part, but I think it pinches in to easily. I'm a defender that likes to poke and lift a lot and I feel like that causes the head to pinch in.
| - SL-lax44 2/14/14 reply|
Revo 3x. I used it for my winter league and no matter the stress or pressure put on it it went right back to shape. Its also the lightest of the three.
| - LAXFOOTBALL122233 6/22/13 reply|
good head. i poke check really hard and to be honest i was a little disappointed with this head. It lost a lot of its stiffness after 3 practices and a tournament. And sometime it will bend after a big poke check and when you go to then scoop the ball you can't because the head is tilted and you have to tilt it back. But overall i still do love this head!
| - DaOG'D 6/07/13 reply|
....You can use any head at any position. They shouldn't make sticks that are legal in high school and illegal in the NCAA. The rules should be uniform.
| - laxbromason21 6/03/13 reply|
u should pinch this head if you are an attack did it played in tournament and did beast for a defense head played attack fyi
| - laxbromason21 6/02/13 reply|
got this head for bday and is awesome strung it with carolina east coast mesh,carolina and navy shooting strings and navy sidewall spools used in tournament and did awesome
| - MaRcLaCrOsSe 5/27/13 reply|
I don't play defence but every defensive player on my team either has or is getting a hammer....
| - FLGoalie 5/10/13 reply|
Please don't make completely irrelevant posts like that. Also, it's way too wide for attack.
| - crlaxdef15 4/29/13 reply|
Got this head because it was really stiff, which it is. The only problem I have with it is that the top scoop is kinda sharp and is awful for picking up ground balls because it gets stuck it the ground unless you get really low with it which isn't good for a d-pole. I'd go with the x10 any day
| - LaxGoalie#14 4/18/13 reply|
looks like they made a head for all positions with it. i play goalie so i use the shield, but they have the hammer for D, proton for attack, the stallion for middie, and the shield for goalie. i think that's pretty cool that they're including all positions with it.
| - Tsai Ti-Pro 9/15/13 reply|
That is very debateable. I have a sp and a proton. I play mid field... its all just preference. Also it would make more sense that since the super power is a wider head, you should use it for d. also the sp is the same exact thing as the proton, except they changed the face shape to make it college legal.
| - FLGoalie 6/24/13 reply|
This is prob too stiff for face, and for LSM, I would recommend the Stallion
| - davchun98 4/06/13 reply|
This or warrior Revolution /revo pro/X, STX X10, or Brine E3? Please answer.

I bought this for this season. been practicing for a few weeks and I love it. Strung it with a sweet mid-low pocket. great control. I have it on a gait ice defense shaft
| - shalax28 4/05/13 reply|
i love this head. i thought it was to wide at first but if you get ninja mesh with a low pocket you'll have alot of control
| - beadychunk 4/01/13 reply|
the head is really easy to have the ball knocked out if you aren't that good with cradling. i wouldn't use it for anything other than D pole or maybe lsm.

the rabil x or the hammer? are we deciding between middie and defense here? you're a scrub come to Idaho to see some real lax #juniorandleadingscoreronjv

I have the Rabil X and i love it but its not a good question. Hammer is for D, Rabil is for middie or attack.

| - Bjorn 3/08/13 reply|
The only bad thing to say about this head is that its a bit too wide! But it's a great defensive head! Stiff and it will really hurt when you lay the hammer down! :D
| - Jake Fuller 11/05/13 reply|
Finally, someone else who agrees with me. The hammer is a bit too wide. It just seems like the ball would pop out whenever I run it down the field. ( I'm a defender )
| - laxbrah34 2/25/13 reply|
would this work for face offs I face with a pole, please help
| - laxdefender22 1/28/13 reply|
the hammer is a sick head. it keeps its stiffness and doesn't warp as easy as the x10 or xcalibur. good on ground balls and definitely worth the money
| - SilverFinLAX 12/15/12 reply|
get the hammer, to me its an updated version of the x10 and the edge is kinda gross compared to the hammer so get the hammer its amazing
| - ULTIMATE LAX KING 12/08/12 reply|
Just got this head and it took me by surprise the wall is actually pretty wide which I like. It has the double screw design so it will fit almost any lacrosse shaft. really nice. It is also fairly light.
