The Gait Torque lacrosse head has withstood the test of time and is coveted by veteran players. The Torque is a powerful weapon for an offensive middie looking to dominate the playing field.

The channeled ball stringing track allow you to seat the pocket in the middle of the head providing an accurate, quick release giving you the advantage in the offensive game.

Scoop

The scoop of the Torque features Gait’s Drop Scoop technology. This aspect of the lacrosse head gives the ability for players to string their pockets with a channel for a quicker release point and increased accuracy.

This aggressive, strong scoop gives the opportunity to customize your pocket to your own advantage and control your accuracy to a much greater extent. All while being able to pick up ground balls with ease due to the lowered scoop.

Sidewalls:

The sidewalls of the Gait Torque introduce “Gait Canted Technology” which creates maximum offset by gradually canting the lower rail. The 15 stringing holes and the offset created by the canted rails will give you ultimate customization in pocket capabilities, while also creating the maximum shot velocity achievable so your shots will be harder than ever.

The sidewalls flexibility is also another aspect of the head that should not be overlooked. The Gait Torque is extremely flexible which makes it a viable option for your faceoff game to take the next big step.

Throat

The throat of the Torque is reinforced with two columns located on the front of the lacrosse head. You will have no problem taking face-offs and won’t worrying about the durability of the head.

Neck

The neck has a skinny but long base that holds tight against any shaft. You can be assured that during gameplay you won’t have any problem scooping ground balls like a pro or applying demanding flexibility at the faceoff position.

Warp Factor

The warp factor of the Gait Torque lacrosse can be a bit of a problem. If you are planning on facing off with the Torque, it will be put under a lot of bending constantly. There are always ways you can avoid the warping of a lacrosse head and I see no problem with the Gait Torque being able to overcome the stress of being warped.

Every lacrosse player knows that warp cannot be avoided and the Gait Torque performs as well as any other head. This is an excellent lacrosse head for you to dominate the field with and no warp can take that away from the Torque.

Shaft fit

The elongated neck of the Gait Torque provides a perfect fit for all lacrosse shafts. You will not need to tape the stick on, that’s a pain that the Torque doesn’t require. You will have no problem finding your favorite shaft and fitting the Torque on to it.

Field Position

The Gait Torque is designed for the offensive midfielder that is looking to dominate the field in the offensive end. The Torque also appeals to the faceoff midfielders or FOGO’s that are looking to help their teams score goals consistently.

No other head offers the ability to customize the pocket as much as the Torque. Providing quick release and maximum accuracy, this head has offense in mind.

Summary

The Gait Torque is an awesome head for your typical on the run offensive midfielder. The sidewall stringing options along with the low dropped scoop can create a pocket perfect for quick release and prime accuracy. With these two things you will be able to make incredible feeds from anywhere on the field with the confidence that your passes will reach their mark.

For the faceoff middie, the Torque has incredible flexibility making clamps and rakes easier than ever. You will be dominating the middle of the field helping your team gain possession at all costs. The Gait Torque is the head to use to take your game to the next level.

  • Perfect for Box Lacrosse

    Good:
    After playing four years of box lacrosse I can say that the Torque and its sequel are two of the best heads you can use with for a fast paced play style. The drop scoop allows for easy on the go ground balls and its broad width matches it with durability. The versatility of stringing this head is a deciding factor for me as many heads cannot support a quality high pocket. Facing off with this head is a must, its flexibility allows you to be able to get more than enough behind every rake (and clamp for outdoor play). I equally recommend this head for defensive players, the wide scoop and v-shaped scoop assists in ground balls especially.
    Bad:
    It is bulkier than most offensive heads and after consistent play, there will be a small amount of warp, although it is not game ruining. Its general narrow shape allows for a quick release point that many not suit play styles especially for a low pocket.
    Overall:
    The torque was made for offensive players but it can be used in all field positions. I highly recommend this for box players of all levels for its unique scoop and its broader shape. It is one of the more durable heads on the market but is still flexible enough for face offs. Its wide range of stringing possibilities is suitable for any play style.

    Good:
    groundballs, strength, durability
    Bad:
    nothing
    Overall:
    This head rocks. I've got one and it's totally awesome. It's a groundball machine, the scoop flattens out just enough to get under the ball. Mine gets beaten up a lot in the contests and it just takes it. It's never cracked or anything. Awesome.

    Good:
    accurate, good pocket and hold, stiff
    Bad:
    warps a bit with f/o
    Overall:
    I play faceoff and mine warped after the 5th game, so I don't use it for f/o anymore. I not a fogo and this head is great for attack. It's light, has good ball control and really accurate. I love it.

    Good:
    they look different, good flex
    Bad:
    too weak and break really easy
    Overall:
    This head is complete rubbish. I bought it because it looked a little different and thought it'd be good. Mine broke within 2 days and didn't even bother getting another one. Waste of money.

  • This head is just totally weird

    Good:
    It's different, lots and lots or stringing holes
    Bad:
    weak, cracks where all the holes are, doesn't feel like normal heads, warps
    Overall:
    The shape of this head is weird and there are stringing holes everywhere. All those holes create weak spots. Mine started to crack along the holes at the top within 2 weeks. It then started to warp and I can't really bend it back because I'm afraid I'll break it. I'm not really happy with it and would suggest to you to not buy it.

  • Really good head that's lasted 2 years so far

    Good:
    scoop flex, durable, strings well
    Bad:
    gets flexible after a while
    Overall:
    This head is pretty good. The main thing I didn't like was how the scoop flexes, but it really helps with ground balls so I love it! Mine's about 2 years old now and it's not showing any small breaks or anything. It's a bit more bendy than when I first bought it, but otherwise it's a great head.

    Good:
    pocket, lots of stringing holes,
    Bad:
    a bit ugly
    Overall:
    There are a lot of stringing holes on this head. And when I say lots I mean lots! It took me a bit longer to string, but it was worth it. The pocket is great and holds and throws well. I'm really happy with it. It also looks cool.

  • Strings a great pocket and not bad for defence

    Good:
    stringing holes, light, accurate
    Bad:
    warps on poke checks
    Overall:
    This head strings up a good pocket. Mine's got good hold and throws accurate passes. I also have an Xcalibur and this feels a lot less sturdy. I play defence with it and it's holding up ok. Although it warped a bit after a couple of poke checks.

  • Totally amazing head, the best

    (5/5)
    Good:
    stiff, goof for f/o, durable, lots of stringing options
    Bad:
    can't find anything bad about it
    Overall:
    I thought this head was stiff at the start, but I've taken face with this and it fine. I've had mine for 2 years and it hasn't warped or cracked, so it's got a good blend between stiffness and flexibility.

    With all the stringing holes you can string any pocket you like. You always get a good channel which is accurate and makes a great shot. The scoop makes for easy ground balls. Amazing head.
