There are two or three collegiate favorites on the list as well.  Let’s take a look and see what these popular lacrosse shafts have served up for 2018.  All the Maverik lacrosse shafts feature ABE technology.   The Adjustable Butt-End is designed to adjust on the handle to a player’s preference.  It can then be tightened down, and taped for a sure fit locked-in design.

Maverik lacrosse separates their lacrosse shafts into the following shapes:

 


 

SPEED SHAPE

Concave sides for aggressive, shifty, offensive ball handlers and shooters that like the most texture and feel through the glove.
 

SIGNATURE SHAPE

Best for youth players and defenders that want their thumbs to fit in the angled grooves of the shaft… control and power.
 

TRADITIONAL SHAPE

All purpose, shoot on the run, ground ball, as close to rounded as they come.

 

SPEED SHAPE LACROSSE SHAFTS:

MAVERIK A1

 
The Maverik A1 lacrosse shaft is a best seller for three years running.  Ever so slightly sandy grip, sub 5 oz. for weight with simple colors and graphics.  A ball handlers dream and awesome advanced youth shaft at $95.  The high school guys might go through two of these a season because of the thinner sidewalls, but a small sacrifice to be using one of the lightest, best handling shafts on the market.  $95
 

MAVERIK APOLLO

 
The Maverik Apollo lacrosse shafts weighs in at a little over 5 oz. and is the elite high school and collegiate choice for aggressive attackman.  Smooth finish for quick hand changes, stronger than the A1, and Wall Taper technology which is where the lacrosse shaft is made thicker at stress points and thinner in the walls elsewhere. $120

 

SIGNATURE SHAFTS:

MAVERIK CALIBER

 
The Maverik Caliber is the strongest D pole you can find in ScTi alloy.  Designed for punishing play in the hands of bigger high school and collegiate defenders.  The signature lacrosse shaft shape is perfect for controlling your head angle during checks.  Guys love the way your thumb sits in the groove, giving ultimate control. $140

 

MAVERIK WONDERBOY

 
The Wonderboy lacrosse shaft is an awesome advancing youth handle that gives younger players lots of technology but won’t break the bank.  Need a D-pole for their first specialty position switch, or have an offensive player that is just starting to handle the ball better, this shape gives smaller hands maximum feel through the glove. $85
 

TRADITIONAL SHAFT SHAPES:

 


 

Maverik has three excellent traditional shaped lacrosse shafts.  These lacrosse shafts are all purpose, have rounded edge shapes that most players gravitate towards these handles.

MAVERIK UNION

 
The Maverik Union lacrosse shaft is the strongest shaft and mostly used by high school middies who want unwavering performance and strength. It weighs 5.3 oz, so this handle is still light but has enough strength to stand up to the toughest levels of play. $130
 

MAVERIK MISSION BLANK

 
The Maverik Mission Blank is a no frills, plain scandium shaft with excellent strength to weight ratios.  Perfect for advancing youth and high school guys that want to upgrade but do not want to break the bank.  $105
 

MAVERIK HYPERLITE

 
The Hyperlite is a carbon based shaft that literally feels like it’s floating in your hands. These shafts are designed for the advanced youth player that wants one of the lightest feels in the game. The high school players love them, but may end up going through 2-3 in a season.  Most of the older players using these are willing to sacrifice some strength at the varsity level for the light weight performance and whip that gives the best ball handling in the game.   This lacrosse shaft is available in two grips. The Maverik Hyperlight grit grip, which feels sandy.  Or the Maverik Hyperlite matte grip which is smooth.  $140  If you pair this lacrosse shaft up with the Maverik Kinetik lacrosse head, you will have one of the lightest lacrosse stick combinations in lacrosse.  Learn more about the new Maverik Kinetik lacrosse head from our product video review from our Pros.
