LAX PRO INSIGHT
Lax.com offers lacrosse beginner sticks, at the right price. The story here is the stiffness of the head and the quality of the pocket. According to our Pro's, if you are just getting started in lacorsse, this type of complete stick is great for the first few months - but if your player starts 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. The plastic is stiff enough to learn, but you don't want your player using this when they start to play in games. Perfect $40 stick to learn how to pass and shoot.
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 develop and enjoy the game, you will need to upgrade their stick. Check out the video: HOW TO BUY A LACROSSE STICK FOR A BEGINNER . 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.
