the mohawk is indestructable. a guy on our team has had his 5/6 years and theres no mark on it. definitely go for that, one check with it and no one will run at u again because it hurts so much

thats probably a good thing evens things up a bit. at the moment the only thing weighing me down is all my heavy talent :wink:

one step further and you may as well get yourself a cast iron d pole, you'd need arms like tree trunks to lift it.

The evo pro is deff an awesome head for every position!! however.... the biggest problem is that when it gets to be about 80 degrees outside the head gets WAY too soft and cant even pick up a ground ball! it bends like its broken.

the brine answer head is just as good with a lot of flex but enough strenght for hard checks and it doesnt get to soft when its warm out so u can keep playin

whats everybodies opinion on the warrior 'dolomite' (a scandium titanium alloy) shafts as a long pole?

general opinion on a few sites is that theyre good as short sticks.

i currently have an E3 on an old titan classic which is developing a nice curve to it near the top, as well as a nice collection of nicks and dents, also its christmas soon....

Ive just picked up a Brine SC21 Scandium with the new Adidas Adistrike head. Not really had much chance to test it, but the head is very strong, and the shaft seems light enough and strong enough for the best of checks. Ill update if anything happens to it after a few more hits

I got a dolomite d-pole about 3 weeks ago and it's amazing! Light and fricking strong. I have it with a torque on top and it works nicely for me!! That said it was working against me at trials on sunday! Or maybe I was just rubbish!! Haha. But back to the stick, would highly recommend the dolomite d-pole!!!

I have 3 sticks an STX Titanium shaft with with an evo pro the shaft bends to much so i reccomend not to buy 1 and the head is good my other stick is a warrior titan classic with another evo pro shaft is mint so is head and ma 3rd stick is a brine optra with an x2 the shaft is sick so is the head. i would say the x2 the my best head and the optra. This shaft is good but will snap after a wile at a high standard of lacrosse.

i use a STX titanium shaft with revo 2.0 head works well for me so far (better than my starter aluminium one which lasted about 4 games before being too bent to use :p )
