The STX Fiber Defensive shaft is built for the entry level through intermediate player, specifically designed for the U14 player. The STX Fiber Defensive shaft features a consistent flex throughout the handle, ensuring there are no weak points on the shaft. The Fiber Defense is extremely durable, and our Pro’s love the Grit finish, providing a non-slip surface perfect for all weather conditions. This is the perfect defensive shaft for a young player, due to the lightweight material, while still being extremely durable for throwing checking. Top this off with an STX X20, or Hammer and you will have one of the lightest defensive sticks perfect for taking the ball away. You can even get your head strung by one of our Pro Stringers with our custom stringing options.
