Boosts Casting Power and Accuracy: Finding a suitable whip gauge also helps to complement casting power and accuracy. The reason many lacrosse players build whip into their stick isn’t because they like counteracting the ball being thrown into the ground.
WHIP: With a lacrosse stick, if the ball is hooked through the mesh, shooting lines, pocket or plastic, the ball will exit the stick prematurely. If a racquet has a high whip and the player overhandly follows their racquet to the target, the ball is hooked and thrown down or low.
Symmetrical sidewall knot pattern. One of the most important things that makes a good lacrosse stick is a symmetrical sidewall knot pattern. Contrary to popular belief, the sidewall cords do a lot more than attach the side edges of the mesh to the head plastic.
That. A larger pocket (which usually translates into more whip) allows you to drag your stick farther behind you. Because you can twist your torso much more, you can generate more torque when shooting. This usually results in an increase in firing speed.
Angle Whip comes from the angle at which the ball leaves the racquet. I like to think that this is relative to the angle the blade is pointing at at the time of release. A high pocket has a strong whip angle because the extreme angle of the pocket’s “ramp” causes the ball to exit the bat at a lower angle.
All are required. What is now a staple of any after-goal celebration began and remains a preventive practice. After years of players having to tie their strings after scoring to avoid being asked for an illegal bat, the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Rules Committee dropped the gavel after the 2013 season.< /p>
A medium bag is a bag that can really be used by anyone. A middie, attack, defender can use them. They are the most versatile and in my opinion work the best. You don’t have to worry about taking your hand off the stick or anything.
Tall Lacrosse Pockets
Tall pockets are most useful for defensive players and players who want superior control or big shooters. A high pocket’s groundball ability is one of the best qualities that makes it an easy choice for defense.
Nylons can be used to create a release point or extra ball feel.
Good solid offering for aspiring youth players or those not wanting to break the bank. This is 6000 series aluminum, which means it’s solid and strong, but not the lightest stuff you can get. Basically a great beginner and intermediate stock for the industry leader STX.
