The STX Fortress 700 women's 10 degree complete women's lacrosse stick is designed for the elite defender. The Fortress 700 lacrosse head has an ideal face shape that features a narrow pinch for ball retention and a wide scoop for catching. The reduced sidewall height offers a deeper pocket without sacrificing strength. STX included the Speed Scoop, a Pro favorite which allows for smooth, easy ground ball pickups from any angle. It definitely gives you an advantage on ground balls. This head comes strung, by STX, with Crux Mesh Pro. Mesh is now legal in the women's game and this will provide you with additional ball control and a defined sweet spot. The mesh features Weather Weave, which is a waterproof coating construction. STX also included Strike Plates which are strategically placed on the shoulders of the lacrosse head for increased power on stick checks. The C-Channel technology reinforces the sidewalls for strength and stability. Our Pro's love the 1" profile, and the GRIP technology on the lacrosse shaft, included on this women's complete stick. The shaft is coated around the bottom which adds stability. A elite defender's weapon for sure that will give you just as much ball control as the boys!
