I already have this head for a shorty and i love it. Would this also work on a d-pole??
| - ecdmax14 11/03/14 reply|
no it wont, it is too pinched, and too stiff. I know you want a stiff head, but this is more of an offensive head. It is also not an advanced head.
| - ben 11/04/14 reply|
I disagree I use this head on defense and it does great.
| - DLeo 11/02/14 reply|
great head but the stringing that comes with it is disgusting. string it yourself or have someone else do it
| - Matthew 10/27/14 reply|
This head is really nice and I have two and they haven't snapped. This head is one of the stiffest heads out there so if your able to warp and snap this head, you must have hit it really bad. Although its quite heavy with the ACP and stiffness.
| - ecdmax14 10/29/14 reply|
it cracks or breaks because it is so stiff. the weak spot is in the throat, that is where it tends to snap.
| - ecdmax14 10/14/14 reply|
nike ceo. It is an overall versatile head, great for face offs, great for attack and can really snipe. CEO is an advanced head. Surgeon tends to snap and crack easy.
| - ecdmax14 9/30/14 reply|
dont waste your money on this head. Mine broke the second week i had it, and i bought another, and it cracked again in a month. Both times it cracked in the throat. Dont waste your money.
| - laxbro3901 9/25/14 reply|
They discontinued this head because they're making 3 different types of this head. The 100, the 300, and the 500 and they're based on levels of play. 100 being the lowest level, 500 being the highest
| - David 10/23/14 reply|
Because they made the new one
| - Stringing? 9/14/14 reply|
How hard is it to string cause I just ordered a black one
| - hippielax 9/14/14 reply|
Why didnt you just order one already strung?....
| - laxbro3901 9/25/14 reply|
Because it's not strung to one specific person's preference. I'd rather string a stick myself then get one pre-strung.
| - ecdmax14 9/15/14 reply|
It doesn't have much stringing holes, but it is good for a simple beginner stringing. This head is a good beginner/intermediate head, not for advanced level of play.
| - blainelax31 9/22/14 reply|
its not very hard just burn the sidewall good.There are good patterns on youtube for high pockets if thats what your in to
| - mukey3577 9/09/14 reply|
Is it the same head if it comes strung with hard mesh? It looks a little different in the photo.
| - ecdmax14 9/09/14 reply|
I bought this head brand new and I used it for three 1 1/2 hour practices, and on my second game I picked up a ground ball and got checked and the throat cracked in two places, making it useless. Waste of time and money.
| - ThatGuyRick 9/09/14 reply|
Kinda mad that i bought a neon green one and the next day it drops price and gets more in stock but its a solid head. Should be very easy to string
| - coastallax 9/09/14 reply|
Bought this head for fall ball last season for college. Used it for 1 week of practice, then in our first game it shattered at the throat rendering it useless and a waste of money. Everyone I know who has used this head has had the same problem. Just throwing this out there
| - Steezy Ritchie 9/05/14 reply|
Im gonna be buying my first stick to play in hs. I dont know much but is this a good head for beginners?
| - Laxachusetts19 9/05/14 reply|
There are beginner heads, but this is a better head but an awesome deal. Doesn't really matter about if the head is a begginer or not but this deal is a steal so i say get it
| - DJYALLAH 7/16/14 reply|
This or the noz for a middle faceoff, but not fogo
| - calvin123 5/23/14 reply|
I personally had three of this head and loved it, but after about a year of very consistent use it began to warp, so don't trust ACP entirely, but still a great head
| - Ian 5/05/14 reply|
Whats the difference between the surgeon and surgeon 10?
| - ben 5/06/14 reply|
Surgeon 10 is NCAA legal so it is less pinched and is not legal for hs or pro but the normal surgeon is hs and pro legal but not college legal
| - pabl0pedroso 4/28/14 reply|
I play middie and i don't take face. I like to rip and snipe when i can so i wanted to know whats better surgeon or a lakota
| - Jayarod 2/15/14 reply|
a friend offered me his surgeon for 65$ and i like the lakota but it might be illegal for high school next year what's better lakota or surgeon
| - awhite 3/01/14 reply|
it depends on what position you are playing the surgeon is good for wings while the lakota is ggod for face off and X
| - TCMSlax11 3/24/14 reply|
Are you crazy? That's not even close the Surgeon is wayyyyy better, if you're attack.
| - CUFCacademy23 12/17/13 reply|
Wassup dudes. So i play middie but i like to play attack to and i tend to rip a few from outside every once and a while in a game. I like a nice mid/high pocket. Would you think a brin clutch 3 or a surgeon would be right for me?
| - Chesapeake Stringing 1/08/14 reply|
The clutch elite is a much better choice for a midfielder. I use it personally, and if you take care of it, it won't warp. Don't leave it in your gear bag when you're done and don't take faceoffs when it's really hot outside. Its got a tiny bit of flex which is always good, whereas the surgeon has absolutely no flex at all. I'd use the surgeon for Attack and Attack only; for quick feeds and quicksticks.
| - Lax god 2/17/14 reply|
If you like mid/high pocket go with this pockets come out pretty clean and just the way u string it
| - yeahbuddylopez 10/21/13 reply|
love this head!!! but not for face-off men, bad for working on crease
| - JordanMessier10 10/11/13 reply|
My clutch elite warped and now it's unusable because it bends on every ground ball. I'm thinking about getting the surgeon for the upcoming season if you want a clutch maybe try the clutch 3
| - laxbro1269 9/09/14 reply|
If you have a problem with ground balls you probably aren't getting your backhand low enough trust me I also have the clutch elite.
| - Frozone 5/18/14 reply|
The best face off person on our team has a surgeon and he doesn't even play midfield, I think that says something about the head
| - cchambers7 8/01/13 reply|
i play mid and dont take face-offs would the surgeon be too slim? which is all around better?
| - needhamlax'19 7/29/13 reply|
i play mid i dont take faceoffs i play year round at an elite level
| - Finnreidlax 7/11/13 reply|
I play mid and normally don't face this or super power
| - Cougarslax99 6/13/13 reply|
For sure get the Surgeon, the stallion is a midfield head.
| - herman 7 2/22/14 reply|
I would use the stallion because its just a better head. its also a stick made for attack even though many people think its for mid. I like it more too.
| - zacaldo99 5/07/13 reply|
Will this fit on the new Warrior Rabil Dolo Diamond shaft? Need response!
| - dwilli704 5/14/13 reply|
yea, i have a surgeon on a diamond. you just have to wiggle it to get it on at first and drill another hole for the screw
| - Dawson Laxer 5/04/13 reply|
I need a new head. Should I get this or the proton power for attack?
| - Snake Defense-man 5/02/13 reply|
I play d-fence but I don't normally use the d heads that people say are good for d sticks and I am used to using attack head and middie heads. Which one do you think would be better
| - LiamOC33 5/04/13 reply|
The Stallion is wider and stiffer the Surgeon is slimmer and more flexible
| - phelan27 5/06/13 reply|
I had a surgeon for d and after 8 months it snapped where the sidewall joins the throat. if you do get this then don't bend it back after it gets warped. the ACP will make it go back to its normal shape later
| - $nipe$ 4/20/13 reply|
For those of you who know about tribe7s sceptre7, would it be a good faceoff head? I got the surgeon and love it but am paranoid about using it for face. ( yes, im a faceoff middie) am i screwed with using the surgeon? And should i get the sceptre?
| - mabok59 4/18/13 reply|
surgeon if you play attack a lot, but stallions good
| - laxking3228 3/27/13 reply|
Should I get the Stallion or the Surgeon. I play attack and sometimes middie.
| - RelaxAndReLax 3/28/13 reply|
Surgeon for attack, Stallion for middie. My favorite attack head is the Warrior Cobra though, very similar to the Surgeon.
| - LAXB&W 3/13/13 reply|
i had this head for 2 months and never played a game, only practice. the spine cracked when i lightly checked someone. its also way to stiff

which is a better attack head? surgeon or ceo
| - JonsBacon74 2/03/13 reply|
does anyone have a good sidewall pattern for a mid pocket on this head?
| - stlaxer22 12/13/12 reply|
this or stallion please reply quick need answer
| - rebelboy 12/01/12 reply|
this is the best head ive ever used. it has a nice pinch so you can play attack, easily stiff enough for d, and light enough for middie. it isnt the lightest, but if its too heavy then you should probably quit lacrosse. the only thing its not good for is faceoffs, because its too stiff.
| - JCotty 11/11/12 reply|
OVERALL: I used this head for about 6 months and I must say... this is my FAVORITE head I have ever used. It went through a ton of tournaments this summer and a lot of games/practices. The way it flares aggressively at the top and the pinch to this head makes it harder to catch, although after you get used to it it provides a massive advantage. It is a bit hard to string due to minimal sidewall holes, but there are great patterns out there for this head.
FACEOFFS: I know you wouldn't consider this as a faceoff head, but I used it for faceoffs on the occasion and found it great. It never, as a matter of fact it doesn't even bend haha. If can clamp fast enough the head is so stiff and strong the opponent won't be able to do anything.
PLEASE READ: I have noticed that there are 2 versions of this head. My friend got one pretty recently and his is one piece at the bottom of the head were mine is 2. This is why it broke so easily (mine broke in 5 places lol). The bottom part was fragile but they fixed this in the new design.
OVERALL THIS HEAD IS GREAT

Ok I need a new defensive head. I made the wrong choice with getting a warrior kryptolyte d-pole dents like crazy totally regret it..... But not my head broke and I can't find any good strong stiff heads. I don't like wide heads. Like for me I like the Evo 2.0 width maybe a little bigger but that's max the min is a proton width. I can't find any new good heads out there. Please help

reccomend it more for d because of the stiffness. this head is impossible to warp unless your f*cking around. sstallion is made for a facoff middie. stallion mid, surgeon attack, and something else like a super power for attack

Mine shattered at the bottom from a slap check it lasted half a season

People say that this is not good for defense. They are incorrect. I have this in black on a easton stealth scandium plus longpole and i play lsm and close d and it does not warp at all on hard pokechecks. I actually recommend it for d if you are experienced.
| - Whitey9 5/10/12 reply|
