Here is the deal with women’s sticks.. PLAYING WITH ANYTHING OTHER THAN A TOP END POCKET AFTER YOUR FIRST STARTER STICK PUTS FEMALE PLAYERS AT A SEVERE DISADVANTAGE AND SLOWS DOWN THE LEARNING CURVE! The women’s game is changing rapidly and major advancements in pocket technology have made it easier than ever for advancing youth players to get their game to the next level quickly. If your player wants to advance in the game, she should not be playing with a starter stick, because of the advanced technology that is now available in complete sticks. Here is our Pro's list of the top five.
1)Under Armour Glory –New for this season, these are already in the hands of some of the top high school and collegiate offensive players in the nation. The secret to these heads is the offensive shape combined with a special pocket that utilizes cross lace patterns down the shooting channel of the stick. These are thinner and more flexible than any other pocket and the result, like the Crux, is that the pocket sits high in the stick. These Glory’s are a shooters and feeders dream stick. $229
2)Brine Mantra 4 – if there ever was a head and shaft combo that bridged the gap between elite and beginner - it would be the Mantra. Advanced pocket technology coupled with a bit wider design makes it slightly easier for players to catch and throw. This is a great gap stick if you do not want to step up to the Crux or the Glory. $189
3)STX Crux 600 –
The STX CRUX 600 is far and away the best elite level pocket for high school and collegiate players that want that softer, high pocket feel and the quick release of 10 degree technology. Click through to see the Crux 600 video review and see why this technology has literally changed the game of women's lacrosse. The Crux 600 is the next gen 2018 version of the best selling women's complete stick of all time. You will see the Crux 500 ( last year's model ) and the new Crux 600 in the hands of more advanced youth, high school and collegiate players than any other stick.
OTHER FAVORITESBrine Dynasty Elite 3 – Big girls, team USA, top colleges, elite high schools to name a few. This is the queen bee of the high end. The only knock on the Crux type pockets is that they can soften up a bit over time. Make no mistake the Crux is a dominant high school setup. The Dynasty is more geared for that collegiate level player that may even be one step beyond. Fast release, a bit harder pocket, but still high in the head. $219.99
STX Fortress 600 – this is a specialty stick developed for easy ground balls and open field running and passing. Used by the collegiate and high school girls, this is a D-middy and defenders dream stick. Wider and more forgiving, but absolutely a ball hog in the right hands. Advanced and elite level defensive players only please. $179
