The Maverik Ascent women's lacrosse head is blazing the trail with it's new 22 Degree Release Angle 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 one that we strung up with a rail elite pocket in the back and think the consistent channel puts the ball in the sweet spot every time for a quick release. 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. This head is designed for straight shafts.
