LAX PRO INSIGHT
The new ECD Rebel defense lacrosse head brings a new level of quality and craftsmanship to the ECD head lineup. The Elite pocket is hand crafted by some of the only other guys in the game that Lax.com trusts to string up Hero 2.0 semi-soft mesh. A true mid pocket not done in a factory... but hand crafted at ECD. The Rebel defense head is designed for two way LSM players and all advancing youth defensive players that are looking for a stiff and aggressive head that will put some offense in your defense. They pinched the scoop a bit on this head which has the effect of elongating the channel and the string hole setup begs for a true mid pocket.
Our PROS here at Lax.com dialed a few up with HERO 2.0 Semi-soft and HERO 2.0 semi-hard. The Semi-soft model had amazing whip and carry ability for guys who are carrying during clears. The Semi-hard had a super quick release for guys who aren't afraid to carry it to the hole or dish out a quick feed on fast breaks.
The real story here is the fit and finish of the Rebel defense lacrosse head. This head reeks of quality when you take it out of the box. ECD really upped their game with the plastic technology, look and feel of this head. She is high school and collegiat ready as one of the stiffer heads on the market with a slightly elongated channel and mid pocket setup. If you are looking for a high quality middie head, or are a youth player looking to step it up.. the new Rebel offense lacrosse head will be a big winner this coming season.
