The New East Coast Dyes Mirage Lacrosse Head

October 27, 2016

The new East Coast Dyes Mirage lacrosse head is a long anticipated, elite level offensive head that was designed by one of the biggest names in advanced stringing, East Coast Dyes.  Why is the East Coast Dyes Mirage lacrosse head so hyped up?  Lets take a look.
Contrary to most people’s belief that East Coast Dyes is a proponent of mid-high pockets, the East Coast Dyes Mirage lacrosse head was specifically set up for middle to mid-low pocket placement.  As our stringing gurus will tell you, that mid-low is the new favorite of on-the-run middies and certainly the go to for attack-man doing work from the GLE or the X.  Looking at the sidewall and string hole setup, the arc of the curvature offsetting the head starts very early and down towards the throat.  Basically the curve starts right where the pocket begins.  This allows for the maximum depth possible, about 1 ½ inches up from the throat and up towards the middle of the head.

 About six string holes up from the bottom, East Coast Dyes designed the Mirage lacrosse head so that the holes become very tightly grouped together.  This is the “equator line” of the pocket and the place where the release channel starts to form for that snappy release that elite offensive guys want.  The channel actually runs almost up to the flair on the top of the head (which is a bit CEO looking) leaving 2 ½ diamonds of mesh between the top string and the bottom of the scoop.  The scoop is actually pretty simple and pretty flat for easy ground balls.

 Other styling features of the East Cost Dyes Mirage lacrosse head that are notable, is the low profile ball stop, which is almost non- existent.   The mold sports the East Coast Dyes crab right at the crux of the throat and we liked how the back of the throat was almost solid to prevent shaft rattle.

The new East Coast Dyes Mirage lacrosse head strikes us as the epitome of what an elite offensive weapon should be.  Simple, stiff, accurate, and durable.   We were whipping sharp passes around with a East Coast Dyes semi-soft hero mesh pocket that really behaved like it was strung mid-high for control, but behaved mid-low with one hand and two-handed cradling.  Shots came out quick and hot.  This head weighs in almost at NOZ levels so it is poised to compete with the elite class offensive heads on the market right out of the box.
