The professor is generally used for only face-offs. People have said they like that the professor isn't pinch while the professor is actually the most pinched that an x6 head can be. Despite what the description says, the professor is NOT stiff. It is actually very flexible, which is why a lot of FOGOs like it. There are not many attackmen that use the professor, or middles for that matter, usually only FOGOs. The downfall to the head is that it breaks fairly easily.

This head any good? I'm looking for a good attack head that is fairly stiff and somewhat wider than a normal attack head. And how's the sidewall? Are there enough holes for different patterns etc?

| - skillaxstringing 6/10/12 reply|
ok everyone is saying that is illegal in high school and it is but do they really measure your sticks specs in high school? Ive never seen them do it in games that I've watched but i wouldn't know cuz I'm going to high school next year. Do they actually measure ur sticks in high school?

I have gone through 3 super powers and I like the head. this head looks like it could be pretty good. Which one should I get? and why?
| - thelaxmonkey 4/24/12 reply|
Why is this head not legal for High School/Youth lax? Is there a way to modify the head so it is?
Should I get this head for attack also?
| - BlackMamba lacrosse 5/07/12 reply|
the scoop is less than 6 inches wide so its illegal in highschool but legal for college
| - thelaxmonkey 4/24/12 reply|
I would personally recommend this head, because it has a great ball control so it would make it easier to get ground balls. But if you are playing for a High School league then I would recommend the surgeon 10 (unless you are in a high school league get the regular surgeon). Also consider looking at the "evo" series by warrior too. Because those heads can also get you a lot of ground balls.
Another thing to consider is that my brother plays lsm, and he has used the m80x, and evo 3x. Now he is playing for teams such as Nike blue chip and headstrong.

READ IF YOU ARE A FACE-OFF SPECIALIST: I play for wayne state university and used this head for 2 pre-season games as a fogo, i mainly used this for a simple clamp or a jam, im right handed and i can see that its warping to the left already. This is a stiff head so you will not be able to use the plunger move. If you are like me go with the Surgeon 10, ACP helps keep the head shape better and it is a little bit stiffer than the professor
| - Chengy2012 11/30/11 reply|
One of the best defense heads out there. Stiffness makes it a great head for poking the crap out of one of those poor attackmen. I play it strung with 4 straights and a high pocket. Lots of whip but amazing hold when running clears.
| - tcov25 10/27/11 reply|
Would this be better than a super power, im kind of leaning toward this right now
| - LAXBRO1965 10/08/11 reply|
if i played with this in a highschool game what would the penalty be?
| - JHamburg 11/15/11 reply|
3 minute non-releasable and you wont be able to bring it back into the game. Not worth it.
| - brin123 9/13/11 reply|
I play attack and can't decide between this and the surgeon 10. Suggestions?
| - Burt 9/14/11 reply|
If you like a stick with more whip go with the professor. If not go with the Surgeon 10. The scoop on the S10 is more "U" shaped and does not allow you to string a lot of whip into the stick.
| - SirLAXalot15 9/15/11 reply|
well i have the STX surgeon which comes more pinched than the 10 but i used my friends professor and it was amazing but i stick with the surgeon its really smooth and straight on the release of passes and shots. :)

i'm thinking about getting this for my box season, is it good?
| - ERay 10/12/11 reply|
Get a proton, its one of the most popular heads for box
| - packlax38 9/02/11 reply|
I'm an attackmen I shoot from all areas of the field, but I also attack the goal alot, so I want a head with a little pinch, i was thinking this or the cobra x anybody else have an idea? I already tried the super power and didn't like it.
| - hehs_lax 9/07/11 reply|

| - gsulax17 8/23/11 reply|
Its either one or three minutes new stick for the rest of the game.
| - ronster 8/01/11 reply|
Best Face-Off head out there. As it pinches it becomes a better head! They don't break loads at all. Not sure what these people have been doing with them to make them break but i use mine alot for facing and only ever broke 1!
| - scottlax22 7/06/11 reply|

| - spencelax 7/16/11 reply|

| - scottlax22 9/28/11 reply|

What would be a good backup head? A have a swizzle and a clutch 2.
| - dalax17 5/15/11 reply|
not unless you actually practice shooting. chances are picking up a new stick won't do anything except improve confidence
| - bottfamily 5/07/11 reply|

| - CiarÃ¡n23 4/06/11 reply|
is this any good instead of super power, clutch x2 or proton power?
| - Tay-Sachs 4/13/11 reply|
If you're playing with ncaa rules, you wouldn't be able to use a proton power anyway. But if you're playing with high school rules you couldn't use the professor. I recommend getting the super power which is legal at all levels. plus the super power is stiff and has great ball control.
| - 5596 3/18/11 reply|
any head can fit on any shaft. you just might have to drill a hole.
