The Nike Lunar Elite 2 lacrosse head 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. The 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 Nike Lunar Elite 2 is a slimmed down offensive minded head that is really well suited for middies that play both offensive 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 lacrosse head can be found on the most advanced youth and high school teams in the nation and offers an amazing step up for advancing players and collegiate level offensive players. This product is the HEAD ONLY and must be used with a STX or NIKE 10 Degree shaft.
