Top 5 Women’s Lacrosse Sticks
|1. STX X3
STX is one of the leaders in innovation when it comes to women’s lacrosse equipments, and the STX X3 is the number one innovative lacrosse stick for women. The prominent feature of this stick would be the special 10° angle of the shaft.
The special 10 degree angle allow the ball to roll to your pocket’s sweet spot every time. The 10 degree angle also offers a better and more ideal balance and hand control because it lets the ball sit farther out.
The 10 degree angle also makes the STX X3 ideal for attackers. The angle allows less ‘reloading time’, so you can unleash your shot when the defense is least expecting it. The shaft features a concave octagon handle that provides optimum grip – plus it’s very light and natural on the hands.
|2. Brine Quantum Superlight
Probably the most ideal stick for female attackers is the Brine Quantum Superlight. The Noz technology makes this stick as light as possible without sacrificing the natural feel an attacker would want when hitting a goal. The Brine Quantum Superlight is also considered as one of the sticks to have the best feel during a game.
The unique pinched U-scoop shape paired with a very ideal head angle makes scooping for ground balls easier, and dramatically adds to accurate performance. The lightweight composite structure, the U-shaped scoop, and a TruOffset, sure is a goalie’s nightmare waiting to happen.
Not only is it the lightest lacrosse stick for women on the market, the Brine Quantum Superlight is the sexiest lacrosse stick for women – even men would want to hold one.
3. deBeer Fierce
The deBeer Fierce features the patented Gripper Pro pocket which provides an improved ball control and pocket shape. The Gripper Pro technology features polyurethane injection molded runners which provides excellent grip to the ball. Braided nylon core on the middle prevents the pocket weaving from stretching, ensuring a longer life of your lacrosse head.
The deBeer Firece features a really low sidewall (which passes US standards) which promotes a better ball control and pocket formation. The sidewall stringing also help pocket swivel, ideal for cradling. The stick’s shape, length, and weight is easily adaptable and is ideal for any position on the field.
The deBeer Fierce also comes in an extensive array of colorways, so you can match your team’s colors. The Gripper Pro is also available in 10 different colors.
4. Nike Nina
Nike is one of the forerunners when it comes to highly advanced sportswear and sports equipment. Nike’s presence has always been felt in almost every sport – basketball, golf, swimming, tennis, skateboarding, football, and even lacrosse.
Women’s lacrosse is no exception from Nike’s all out support to sports, and when it comes to quality lacrosse equipment, Nike just does it.
The Nike Nina’s first impression on me is its very prominent forward bend on the top head. The bend provides better ball catch and release, which is optimized by Nike’s 10° technology which arches the head back for great ball control. The 10° angle helps the ball stay higher on the pocket.
It also features an excellent throat construction that really feels so sturdy, I even pushed it back with my hand without flexing the shaft significantly.
5. Reebok AirVynity w/ 7k Krizlyte Pro
Reebok has been actively participating in the lacrosse industry by providing state-of-the-art equipment suitable not only for men, but also for women.
The Reebok AirVynity bundled with the Kryzlyte Pro is one superb highly advanced lacrosse stick. Its Pro Offset and Profile provides excellent ball control, stability and protection – perfect for fast-paced cradling and off the bat shooting. Its unique V-shaped scoop also aides to perfect ball alignment and accuracy.
The Krizlyte Pro Handle is made out of new super light material called PX99 alloy – I held it and it felt like holding a piece of cardboard, it was so light! It also has a seamless construction, leaving no marks or groves on the shaft making it as smooth as possible. The biggest downside however is that it felt too smooth for me, I think it can fly off sweaty hand when swung really hard. Grip tape would be really useful.
