What's the best lacrosse gear for you?
Years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I used to play long stick. My setup was a Brine Edge on an F15 and it worked well. The Edge isn't that accurate, but it has a wide, flat scoop which just sucked up ground balls.
One season I decided to play short stick midfield, so I put the Edge on a short pole and never looked back. I was crap at defence anyway! My game was around ground balls, faceoff wings, transition and good skills so the switch wasn't too difficult.
A couple of seasons later, I broke my last Edge so I had to buy a new one. I considered myself a bit of a goal scorer by then so I asked our best attacker what head I should buy. He recommended an Evo and so I bought it. He strung up an awesome pocket which held well and was very accurate.
The first training session went fine. I was catching and throwing well, but then we got into ground balls. I could not pick up a ground ball to save myself. The tip of my Evo was pointy and had a big lip on the back, whereas my Edge was completely flat and had no lip. This difference completely destroyed my strength: ground balls.
