When do I replace my stick?
Attention all Lacrosse players and parents!
There have been some rule chnges that will be effecting players of all levels this year. Regarding the boys youth and high school game, the biggest rules change equipment wise has been the elimination of the U or V shooting string.
NFHS and US Lacrosse rules effective in spring 2016 require that no stick have any shooting strings below 4" from the top of the head.
This means if your stick has been strung with the shooting strings below 4", they need to be removed and replaced at the appropriate level. Hot4Lax will be glad to assist you.
Bring in the sticks and our stringers will help replace them. If the mesh has been well used, we can restring it for you as well.
When do I replace a head?
We are often asked this question. This really depends on what kind of head you have and what level of player someone is.
If the head has become very soft, pliable and well used, the plastic may have broken down. A lacrosse stick is similar to a tennis racquet. Sometimes the racquet needs to be restrung. When a players size, position and abilities change, you may need to update and change your racquet.
When to change your stick head or shaft?
- When your ability changes - moving from beginner to intermediate
- When your position changes or becomes more specialized - move to attack or defense
- When the stick is cracked, cambered - it is illegal to play with a cracked or broken stick
- When the head is warped from face offs and a ball will not come out of the pocket - tilt the stick 90 degrees
- When the stick handle/shaft is bent, cambered, kinked or dented.
- When a player moves up an age group and needs a stick that needs to be 40-42" long.
- When the head is like rubber and can be bent backwards with one hand, it becomes a dog toy launcher.
