LAX PRO INSIGHT
The best defensive shafts for youth players are priced in the $100 range and have some metal properties that allow them to be both durable and lighter weight than aluminum starter shafts. There Warrior Burn shafts are simple graphics and designed to be that step up defensive shaft for advancing youth player through the JV levels. At $100 you won't break the bank here and are getting a quality defensive lacrosse shaft at about half the price of upper end models.
The Warrior Burn series has a slight diamond ( or sandy, gritty grip ) that makes it awesome in all weather conditions. Hot, cold, sweaty.. it doesn't matter. Kryptolyte was the original metal mix that made these shafts the #1 best sellers in youth lacrosse for year after year. The diamond finish is an added bonus as it keeps the tape weight down and the kids playing under control.... you really can't go wrong here ate the $100 price point for youth players !!
