The STX Exult 500 women's complete lacrosse stick is one of the most elite sticks in the game for midfielders and for those that want to win the draw. If you're playing above the youth level and have not tried these advanced pockets yet, then you are simply playing at a disadvantage. 10 degree technology means cradling higher up in the pocket, a faster shot speed and quicker release. The Exult 500 lacrosse sticks are based on the amazing success of the Crux 500 series and are now more adapted to the offensive side of the field because of the tapered design that provides the best hold and accuracy in the game. Put this in the hands of player with decent skills and watch their game elevate instantly.
