The Nike Lunar Elite complete stick uses 10 degree technology to make the ball sit higher in the pocket for a quicker release and more shot power with just a flick of the wrist. These new Launch pockets are complete game changers for players of all ages as they allow the girls to cradle, handle and shoot much more aggressively. The Lunar Elite 2 is a slimmed down offensive minded head that is really well suited for middies that play both offensive and defense and need to be on the ground ball game as well. The composite handle on the Lunar Elite 2 is a bit thinner and more angled than the STX shafts. This complete stick can be found on most advanced youth and high school teams in the nation and offers an amazing step up for advancing players and collegiate level offensive and defensive players.
