Need new d pole shaft for LSM

Postby greyshrop Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:33 pm

I'm going to start playing LSM next season after being a middie. I need a light shaft but also durable because I also play a lot of defense now. What's the best shaft for me? Light but durable.

Just because you're an LSM doesn't make your pole any different to any D mans pole, we all want something that will last a while, will stay straight, is light, a little flexible and that we can afford.

Light = Scandium/Aluminium alloy

Yeah, you don't really get to have both ;) Maybe a STX Steel 7000 if you manage to find one, those seem to be quite durable and not overly heavy, but they're out of production I think so maybe a few left somewhere.
I like to string and I like to help my fellow stringers. Drop me a line if you need help, be it stringing mesh pockets, custom pockets, repairs etc.

STX Stallion SC-TI (http://www.lacrossegearreview.com/shaft ... haft-60473) has scandium and titanium. Unfortunately also the price tag to match.

I have been a d-pole and LSM for over 8 years. I have used the same shaft since I started playing. I show up to practice and all the other poles are amazed at how light my shaft is. It is the lightest pole on my team. But yet, there are no dents in it. I HIGHLY recommend the Easton stealth tht100 scandium long pole. Easton has stopped making lacrosse products so all of there products are on super sale. Normally $150 US dollars. You can pick them up now at about $70 -$90 US dollars. Let me know when you go coast to coast.
