Preview: Maverik Centrik Lacrosse Head

When companies get acquired, it often takes years before things really start to mesh. It took Facebook a while to really optimize what Instagram is all about. I’m sure Staples is having fun with OfficeMax, too. Anyway, for sports equipment, it’s really no different. When Bauer purchased Maverik a few years ago, it acquired a company that wasn’t necessarily floundering, but they were also not quite there in terms of being a major player like Warrior, STX and Brine were at the time. Boy, times have changed.

Preview: Warrior Noz2 Lacrosse Head

COMLAX_NOZ2_945X400

The current NOZ X head has been one of the most popular heads in the game recently and we can barely keep them stocked! Warrior was able to create this ridiculously light head through their patented use of molding process that creates a hollow interior filled with nitrogen gas. The current NOZ X sits as the 9th lightest head on the market in our Lacrosse Head Weight Database, which is pretty impressive when you think about how many heads are available out there. This super lightweight head was perfect for offensive players who demanded the quickest releases and fastest shots.

Soon the NOZ X will have a big brother. The Limited Edition Warrior Noz2 Lacrosse Head is on it’s way soon and is available now for pre-order with a ship date of June 19th. Warrior is claiming this version will be even better. Don’t all the manufacturers claim that? Wouldn’t it be funny if some manufacturers just finally admitted it and said in their ads that “this one is pretty much the same as the last one. Have fun.” Time will tell, we suppose.

Based on the very limited information that Warrior is giving us (why so secretive guys?), there are some differences here. The NOZ2 will increase the number of sidewall holes to 17 for you obsessive stringers and it appears as if Warrior has found a way to lighten up the head a little bit more than the previous, though our scales will determine that one. What hasn’t changed is that it has the same face shape and flex profile as the current NOZ X.

You can pre-order the Noz2 by clicking that fancy button below. Be first!

STX SuperPower+ Limited Edition Lacrosse Head

blog header superpower
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. So what is this thing all about?
