The Maverik Ascent Women's Complete Stick has a 22 Degree Release AngleTM which allows for high-powered shots, accurate passes and superior draw control. The highest in degree technology, to date. With enhanced stiffness and a Ground Control scoop, the Ascent is tenacious in unsettled situations. Our Pro's threw around with in the back and think the consistent channel puts the ball in the sweet spot every time for a quick release. Little, to no, break in for the mesh and leather runner pocket systems. We also love the new rose gold color accents, and the 7/8andquot; shaft which features a new molded butt end design. The sidewall geometry design for the draw allows the Ascent to slide easily into the opponent's head for better placement on the draw. The shielded sidewall protects stringing from wear and tear. We think this is a perfect stick for the power shooting midfielder and for the Draw. The head was proudly strung in Syracuse, NY.
