Limited Edition lacrosse heads are becoming all the rage lately, with the Warrior Blade OG, the Rabil Gold head and STX’s Stallion U500 all released within the past year. As long as those heads keep generating the buzz and sales that those three did, you can expect the parade of Limited Edition heads to continue.

The latest to hit the shelves is the STX SuperPower+ Limited Edition Lacrosse Head. We all know how popular the SuperPower heads have been in the past, so it’s only logical that STX come out with a souped-up LE head (and only make 250 of them) to get people talking.

**Update: The STX Stallion U 500 LE Head is now shipping at ComLax.com!

After incredible success with the original Stallion head, STX is finally set to unveil their next thoroughbred with the Stallion U 500.

STX Stallion U 500 LE Head

This time around STX is dropping a Limited Edition ahead of the main release with a production run of only 250 units. Needless to say, buzz for this baby is just about off the charts. To separate this LE head from the standard Stallion U 500, STX added bits of Stallion Yellow on the scoop, throat and ball stop which really give it some extra pop. In addition to the bright STX logo the scoop of the Stallion U 500 LE features a textured, raised stallion emblem. Unless you are up super close it is barely noticeable, but adds a nice touch.

STX still wasn’t done there. In addition to this super sleek head you will receive a limited edition Stallion Dura Mesh Kit in matching colors. Just in case you were worried about someone stealing your sweet new head, STX engraved the unique serial number of each head on the side of the throat. These heads are truly unique and are an amazing collector’s item.

STX Lacrosse is one of the most prominent brands in the lacrosse world for the past 40 years. Each year they release better products with some of the most innovative technology that allows players to be “Equipped to Perform” no matter what position or skill level.

STX Women’s line of products has gone from the basic equipment all the way to the top of the line standard in the women’s game, especially the offensive side of the ball with their Crux10 attacker head.

Originally STX released the Crux Head to be the “go-to” offensive weapon for the women’s game.

STX Stallion HD Gloves

STX has really come a long way with their protective line of equipment and in the past lines like the G22, Assault and Cell helped pave the way for the protection lines of today. The Stallion HD line takes the best parts of all the lines from previous years and combines them together to create the new line that is protective, flexible and lightweight.

The Stallion HD gloves are designed to give players the best protection as well as the highest amount of mobility so that players can “Run without Reins.”

IMG_1225-s

STX utilized a familiar techonology for protection throughout the entire glove with the High Def Polymer hence HD in the name Stallion HD.

IMG_1251

The High Def polymer has been in STX equipment for some time now going back to the G22 line as well as in the Assault line of protection. High Def polymer creates a soft to touch feel but on powerful impacts it absorbs and disperses the impact throughout the HD polymer.

The Stallion HD glove also features better protection systems throughout the glove with expanded finger joints which enhances the coverage of protection on the fingers. STX also added a floating knuckle system where the knuckles on the glove aren’t resting directly on your hand, that way if you take a shot off the knuckles you aren’t feeling directly on that spot. Continuing with the knuckle protection STX added a domed knuckle to allow your fingers to move independently and have high amounts of finger flexibility.

STX redesigned the thumb on the Stallion HD with what they call the Iso-Thumb technology which gives players a full 360 degree range of motion in the thumb. The Iso-thumb allows players to get a full grip on the handle without having any “dead space” between the handle and the glove.

IMG_1220

STX updated their cuff system to feature an integrated cuff system where the cuff is streamlined part of the backhand to eliminate gaps in protection like previous cuffs had.

STX also updated the palm to wrap around the entire hand to eliminate and seams along the side of the glove that would interfere with your hands.

STX actually ended up releasing this last year in the NCAA Tourney with Cornell wearing them and Team USA will be wearing them at the FIL World Championships in Denver later this year! Here is the Team USA’s version of the Stallion HD for the FIL World Championships
