STX Stallion 500 Lacrosse Shaft
STX's line of Stallion equipment is designed for elite players seeking the best performance out of their gear. With the STX Stallion 500 shaft, this attribute is easily identifiable.
Being constructed out of STX's highly engineered carbon composite, the shaft offers an incredibly high-strength design while also being very lightweight, and a little flexible. These traits all combined essentially create the perfect lacrosse shaft.
If you're really looking to up your game, you really can't go wrong with getting this shaft.
Material and weight
The Stallion 500 shaft's great performance is really due to the materials STX has put into it.
The shaft is made entirely of a carbon composite material. Carbon fiber is known in all of its applications for its high strength while maintaining a relatively low weight.
This is definitely the case with this shaft as you're not going to have to worry about it getting dented or all of a sudden snapping like you would with a wooden or metal shaft. The shaft won't break, but it will flex, which is good.
The shaft flexing while in the motion of passing or shooting is going to give the ball a much higher speed. Once you get used to this flex, you're going to notice an improvement in your game.
This shaft comes in weighing at 6.2 ounces, which is considerably light in the modern game of lacrosse. When you combine this with its strength and ability to flex, you're looking at a high performing piece of equipment.
It's also worth noting that the Shaft comes in 3 versions, the 85, 110, and 135. These measure grades of flex, with 85 being most flexible. This customization is further going to optimize the shaft to your position and preference.
The Stallion 500 shaft features a concave octagon shape. This is increasingly becoming a popular shaft shape to be produced in today's game. This is most likely due to how functional it is.
You get the solid feel of a shaft because of the solid 8 corners, but you're going to also have a concaved grip for your fingers and palm to brace.
This shaft is given a new method of grip, called a tactile finish. This shaft is going to give you a sandblasted-like feel, but it's going to last a lot longer.
Rubberized grips and regular sandblasted grips have tendencies to wear or chip off, but you're not going to have to worry about that with this handle.
Wear and tear
This handle is generally designed to last a long time. From its high strength design, to its tactile finish you're not going to have to really worry about it wearing down almost at all.
The performance is going to remain consistent throughout the whole time you're using it. You won't even need to worry about the graphics on your handle wearing off, because of the tactile finish.
If you are a player concerned about getting a lot of use out of your handle, then the Stallion 500 is definitely going to be for you.
The STX Stallion 500 shaft is a highly advanced handle on the market right now. It has only really been fairly recently that composite lacrosse shafts have become such relevant and in-demand equipment.
Usually when you introduce a new type of technology into the game, you have to give it a while to further develop and become truly effective. Composite shafts such as the Stallion 500 are ahead of the curve in this trial.
The Stallion is the type of shaft that will raise the bar in standards for lacrosse handles, and without a doubt will satisfy your needs.
This shaft has a 60 day warranty included and you're able to pick from two main color styles, black and white.
