LAX PRO INSIGHT
The lacrosse beginner sticks on sale are premium quality even though we are selling them at discount prices. The story here is the stiffness of the head and the quality of the pocket. To be brutally honest, if you are just getting started in lacorsse, these types of sticks are great for the first few months... but if your player startes to get into the game, you are going to want to upgrade quickly to help their development.
There are plenty of youth leagues that buy these and pass them down. The pockets are decent, but "factory" strung.. which means China. The plastick is stiff enough to learn, but you don't want your kid using these when they start to play games. Perfect $40 stick till they upgrade.
Here at Lax.com we recommend these types of sticks for beginners that are just trying out or getting into the game. Honestly, after about 6 months, if your player is starting to get into it, you need to upgrade their stick. We have a selection of COMPLETE STICKS that LAX.com has custom upgraded and strung to help new players develop and learn to catch and throw at a more advanced level. It is really all about getting the proper pocket and the proper head shape. Keeping your youth player on the field with a starter stick after a few months really puts them at a disadvantage. For an extra few dollars, why not get them the lightweight technology and pocket design which will help them grow into their game.
