LAX PRO INSIGHT
The best youth lacrosse helmets come from STX and Cascade. The STX Stallion 100 is designed for youth players who are just learning to play the game and who want a countered fit, while providing all the protection a youth player needs. There is an adjustment mechanism, on the back of the helmet that allows players to make adjustments as needed. These helmets are made by a company named Schutt, who is one of the leading manufactures of football helmets.
For insurance purposes, we are not allowed to comment on the difference in protection. All we can tell you is that there is a noticeable difference in weight between the two manufacturers. Most of the helmets sold in the marketplace are Cascade. Schutt just released this type of helmet last year and the adult model is being worn by some of the top collegiate programs in the country.
