D-Head

Postby Princess Wed Dec 06, 2006 9:54 am

Hello, after breaking my 4th Revo pro in 2 seasons (last one lasting under a month) i desperatly need suggestions or offers of a new defence head!!!

Plus how long does it take to get a replacement head under warrenty?

where did the Revo Pro come from?
if UKLacrosse then ring Keith up, discuss and send back, beware that the warrenty is for an unstrung head.

I'd definitely recommend the gait wizard as a defence head, i have two and they are tough, heavy and its like checking people with a brick on a stick. and when you do do something silly like poke checking some vast attackman coming at you at 90mph and it bends itslef in half it always comes back.
think Zenith have some at the moment

How have you broken that many Revo's? Is it the same part on each head?

You must pe playing some very very hard attack man, if it breaks witha poke check, but fair play.

i don't think any other UK supplier has them. as far as i know they are no longer made, i went on a massive search for them online in the states
not sure if I'm allowed to mention the people i bought from without offending sponsors/cheeky police so I'll PM

One of our D men has also smashed in the side walls on his Revo Pro.
I would suggest the following...

The Gait Wizzard (go to lax.com they still have some.)
The Brine Motive (as used by Matt 'Danger' Murphy - Wilmslow LDO)
The STX Bionic (PM me, I may have one cheap)
The STX Fuse (Fairly heavy but super cheap by now)

If you can find one..
Brine Edge Plus (old school head, super fo Dmen!)

I snapped the side wall on my Revo a couple of weeks ago. Uklacrosse replaced it no problem

All heads can break, but what this guys talking about is hardly sounds like a poke check.......... go back and learn to poke check buddy!

I think you will find that he said it was a poke checks both times!!! Hence why i assumed the attack man must have been hard to the touch.

thanks for the advice but i know what i did and i know what a poke is. Starting to think it may be something to do with the frosty weather, If you are implying (sp?) i am slashing to break my sticks i would point out only the most recent went on a poke on the BACK of the side wall not the front where a slap related break would be.

Come on Princess, you keep on breaking heads by hittin the concrete at training when running in that stupid paddling / whitewater rafting way you do. Either that or it just breaks from the decible levels you pump out whilst screaming at yourself when Jimmy glides past you again and again and again...... (Will be watching out for myself on Thurs training now....)

Ah Princess, i think that many a D-pole has tried and failed to stop the Slippery Ginger Bennett. You could always forget to give him a lift to training....
