LAX PRO INSIGHT
The all new Nike Vapor Carbon shaft is a sleek new addition to the carbon fiber lacrosse shaft revolution. The Nike Vapor Carbon shaft is a no frills, mid tier price point, high performance attack shaft that Nike specifically engineered to take over the $100 range for advanced youth and high school players. These shafts weigh in at a very low 5 oz. and have a slightly gritty carbon texture grip. Five different color combinations complete the package and allow the little guys to sport their team colors.
So the big secret with most of these shafts is that most smaller player can not flex a carbon shaft enough to get the extra shot MPH that is so frequently advertised. Nike took a different route and made these shafts sooo light that the real benefit to the younger players is not exactly the extra bend or load in the shaft while shooting, but rather the simple fact that it is one of the lightest shafts on the market. Younger players simply have more ball control with lighter shafts... and at only $100... Nike has the answer.
For the high school guys, you can still feel the shaft load up and let it rip if you shoot over 75 MPH. We love these shafts as a high quality alternative to some of the premium collegiate and high school brands that are charging upwards of $150 for carbon attack shafts. The NIke Vandal shaft is the best selling metal shaft here at Lax.com and we have every reason to believe that this Nike Vapor Carbon shaft will follow in it's footsteps abnd dominate the high school and youth carbon markets.
