ComLax Starter Packages

Do you have an aspiring young laxer joining the family this year? At  ComLax we understand that Lacrosse is a growing game in both Boys and Girls games. On the Boys side we worked with Maverik Lacrosse to create a starter package that includes everything your new laxer will need for the season, and on the Girls side we have a couple options from Maverik, STX and Brine. We understand lacrosse can be an expensive sport but we don’t want that to stop the game from growing so we figured out a way to pass along great deals to everyone!

Just For the Boys:

We worked with Maverik Lacrosse to release the new Charger Starter Package for 2014 that includes everything you need to play for only $179.99.

Helmet

Shoulder pads

Arm pads

Gloves

Complete Stick

The Maverik Charger line is great for the young players who are new to lacrosse and want to hone the basic skills of the game. The Charger stick offers their GRIP ZONE technology that helps beginners learn where to place their hands on the stick when passing and catching, making it easier to learn.This deal is great because the helmet alone can run you $119.99 on its own, so with the entire package you save well over $150 which is great for family budgets.

But say you have already had a laxer in the family and you don’t need the entire package setup, we also have other packages that include just the pads and stick which includes:

maverik-cascade-boys-lacrosse-pads-and-stick-starter-pack-DEFAULT-42865-L

Gloves

Arm Pads

Shoulder Pads

Complete Stick

A great deal at only $99.99 you can get everything you need except a helmet. But say you also already have a stick in this package you can get a backup stick as well at only $25!

Say you have already got a starter set from us in the past but your young laxer has outgrown his pads. We also just offer the protection options in a package that includes:

Gloves

Arm Pads

Shoulder pads

This is great for families who may already have a helmet and stick for the young laxer who is growing but still needs to get the full protection setup.

But while you’re at it here are a couple things that we recommend that you may want to purchase as well:

Equipment Bags: Do you really want to be carrying his stinky gear in your hands NO WAY!

Mouth Guards: These are required to play and they get lost often …so get a couple TRUST US!

Cleats: Why not get everything in one stop we offer great deals on lacrosse cleats!

Socks: He can now match his uniform to complete the look or go wild and stand out!

Reversible: Get him a reversible so that he can show up ready to pick a side!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun:

We also offer a couple different options for girls who are just starting out lacrosse as well. Girls have significantly less equipment than boys do where they are only required to wear a set of goggles, a mouth guard and a stick though gloves are optional.

We do offer a couple different options for our girls starter packages:

Maverik’s Twist Package includes the Twist Complete Stick, Cascade Poly Pro Goggles and the Twist backpack.

STX’s Level Starter Package that includes STX Level Complete Stick, STX 4Sight+ Youth Goggle and the STX Essential Stick Bag.

Cleats: We offer great deals on girls cleats so why not get everything in one stop!

Socks: We have tons of socks to complete the look or match their team colors!


Lax Wax

Consistency is what every lacrosse player is working hard to achieve, you want to throw the exact same way over and over again. Any lacrosse player who has ever played hates playing in bad weather conditions not just because you could be cold, wet or extremely hot; they hate it because it messes up your pocket. Consistency is the name of the game and in terrible weather conditions this goes right out the window.
laxwaxrain
In the early days of lacrosse wooden sticks were hand carved and strung up with what we now call “traditional” where natural  animal gut was used along with stringing and leathers to form the pocket on the stick. Yes you did read that correctly natural animal intestine was used to string the sidewall of sticks because it is extremely durable, most sticks you see still have original gut along the sidewall. In the early days of lacrosse sticks didn’t necessarily have fully formed “pockets” like we do today, instead cradling was a skill necessary to maintain posession of the ball.

Cascade R

Cascade has been the gold standard for lacrosse helmets for the past 20 years. With every new helmet Cascade releases, they put in thousands of hours of research and development to produce the most advanced helmets on the market. In addition, Cascade manufactures updates on their equipment that are going to help protect players and deliver that high-quality performance and style that all you lacrosse players are looking for.

In 2014, Cascade applied technologies that they have designed previously and tweaked them to create the best helmet ever, essentially if the Pro7 and CPX-R had a baby, the Cascade R is what you would get! The Cascade R has the most advanced impact management system to date, utilizing features like a new Dual-liner system, R series Monoshell, Hardtail SPRfit and the R series components.

rbloglimage

The Seven Tech liner was originally released when the Pro7 helmet released and it is the revolutionary impact management system that is designed to cushion high-energy impacts and spread out the energy throughout the seven tech pods in the helmet. When the Seven Tech liner is impacted the pods compress laterally to spread out the impact and reset within seconds to allow for protection against any further hits to the head.

2014 Brine Swizzle Scandium

Brine’s new Swizzle Scandium for 2014 is a great shaft but before we go into how amazing it is, let’s go into where it came from and why this line of shafts have been so successful.

Blast to the Past: The Swizzle line of shafts was originally designed in coordination with Mikey Powell who joined Brine in 2005, but since then the Swizzle has been a go to for many players. The original Swizzle was the first shaft to place a rubberized grip on the shaft with their Zone-Tek enhancement, and it was Mikey Powell’s logo that was featured on the shaft.

Brine_Swizzle

This type of grip really helped players get extra grip they are looking for without adding weight by having “candy cane” their stick with tape. From then on the Swizzle and Swizzbeat were beginning to get their legs under them and take off as a handle line.

Brine_Swizzle7075

They have released many versions of this type of specialized grip over the years which have been very popular amongst players.

Fast forward to today:

SwizzleAssortment

Brine went back to the drawing board for the 2014 Swizzle Scandium to figure out exactly what players want from a handle with grip. The 2014 Swizzle Scandium offers their unique Elite Grip that once focuses on grip only where players want and need it.

 EliteGrip

The Elite Grip is a new grip option that has grip zones in specific areas and key zones on the shaft. Brine R&D started by studying hand positioning during gameplay while passing, dodging and shooting to design the new Elite Grip.

EliteGripView2

The Elite Grip is embedding into the colored graphics of the shaft, as you can see in the above image the grainy looking area is the Elite Grip embedded into the graphics.

Brine placed the Elite Grip in specific areas to give players a better feel of the handle, as well as a traditional glossy feel to allow players to slide their hands easily while switching hands. By targeting specific areas the Elite Grip on the Swizzle Scandium will allow players to correctly position their hands when coming out of a dodge or looking to move the ball.

Brine knows that players are looking for technology that is going to help them on the field and with the Elite Grip technology the new Brine Swizzle Scandium will allow players to get that performance enhancing grip they have been looking for!
