First of all i've only used three heads the Edge, Wizard, and Revo. The edge is extreamly wide and is so hard to break but i have succesfully broken liek 3 its a little heavey but not as heavy as a wizard wich is not as wide but u have better control running the ball down the field and is extreamly durible the revo on the other hand is not really a good D head i only used it as a back up for like half a season and if liek to throw hard stick checks it will break at the worst times and it bends easily but it is a lot lighter then the other two heads and has the best ball control of them all also a head a i havent used but many players on my team have used is the bionic its very sturdy and is pretty wide btw the edge is probablly impossible to get now teh wizard is still around dunno if its still in production but i see it all over the internet

i think you can still get an edge, one of our team just got one i think and its solid. just messing and soft about poke checks left bruises.

probably came from me if it's a white one in monster mesh, if it isn't I got 3 of them! They no longer make them but there are still some unused stocks lying around, just got to find them!

X2 is a great D head of you can get hold of one. Very stiff and strong, with side walls like scaffolding.

Great for hard poke checks - love it!

there's a button on the left of your keyboard with caps lock written on it
press that.
to answer your question one of our poles has just bought an E3 and it seems like a nice D-Head pretty stiff and reasonable weight.

i second that, great head with really wide scoop. very stiff and can be pinched if wanting more ball hold.

youth of today eh

it is pretty pinched, the theory behind not wanting a pinched head for D is that its easier to get knock downs etc with a wider head. However in my opinion the difference is minimal. Have you ever seen the Voyce it looks awefully spindly for a D head. I reckon it would bend/break pretty quickly
