The ECD Rebel offense head is designed for two way middies and all advancing youth offensive players that are looking for a stiff and aggressive shooting and feeding head. ECD pinched the scoop a bit, 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 strung a few up with ECD Hero 2.0 Semi-Soft and ECD Hero2.0 Semi-Hard mesh. The semi-soft model had amazing whip and outside shot speed for step-down shooters and guys who are carrying down the alley dodging from up high above the restraining line. The semi-hard had a super quick release for guys who operate closer in and are feeding cutters. ECD really upped their game with the plastic technology, look and feel of this head. This head is high school and collegiate ready as it is one of the stiffest 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 take the next step, the Rebel offense lacrosse head is your winner.
