The new Brine King lacrosse head is designed with shooters in mind. The face is longer than other standard lacrosse heads on the market, giving the ball better transition time out of the pocket and an increase in velocity and shot power. The new Strategic Core-Tech™ sidewall design also creates a pocket for increased shot accuracy, and the new throat construction eliminates excess weight in the head.
It seems like many industries out there have that “marquee” item that has withstood the test of time and stretched the limits of technology with each release. Think about each release of iconic items like Apple’s iPhone, Sony’s Playstation Platform and Nike’s Air Jordan Lineup – always pushing the boundaries of technology and cool.
The lacrosse industry also has a piece of equipment that many say could be categorized as an all time great. The Brine King line of gloves have pushed the envelope with industry leading protection, comfort and durability. The Fifth chapter in this series takes it to the next level. Introducing the Brine King V Lacrosse Gloves.
The initial reaction from trying the King V on was how protective it seemed. You know that feeling you get when something really stands out to you and in your mind you just say “wow.” As with the previous versions of the King glove, it didn’t take long to get that broken in feeling that we have all come to know and love – this version is pretty much going to be game ready after a quick toss session. The ventilation remains a staple in this model, which means the breathability in the glove will be great. One difference you may notice is that the King V feels slightly bulkier. This is increased protection added by Brine and should simply offer more piece of mind.

After a highly decorated career at Cornell University which included the coveted Twaaraton Trophy, Rob Pannel has become a household name in the sport of lacrosse. In the MLL he continued to have success with the New York Lizards recording 42 points (25g, 17a) in only 10 games which was impressive enough to land him the 2013 MLL Rookie of the Year Award.
Brine, always on top of their game, recognized Rob’s potential and signed him to their Brine Team Elite. Starting this season Brine will be releasing the RP3 gear line, starting with the RP3 Head on May 1st.
When choosing a new pair of lacrosse gloves the biggest things players look for (ignoring color options for now) are protection, fit and comfort. Brine took their popular Triumph glove and completely overhauled it for a new look and feel with the Triumph II for 2014.
Brine originally released the original Clutch in the fall 2007 and it immediately became a player favorite with its aggressive face shape, TruOffset and lightweight feel. Brine has since released many different variations of the Clutch each time releasing with a new innovation to the popular head.
