When Warrior and Paul Rabil sat down they set out to create the ultimate scoring machine and what we got was; THE RABIL, a head inspired by the BEST scorer in the game.
Pretty soon here at ComLax, we will be offering the STX Alliance Shaft. What makes this shaft worthy of a blog post, you ask? Well, the first and most notable thing to mention is that STX is introducing the idea of flex into lacrosse shafts this year. Love those STX folks, always thinking ahead, aren’t they? Anywa,y, the idea of flex for your shaft basically means that you can now purchase a lacrosse shaft based on your style of play and your position. Much like ice hockey, you can now optimize your on-field performance with the three following flex options on the Alliance:
85 Flex: This will be the most “whippy” of the three – in other words, you’ll find a lot of flex in this shaft. If you play a finesse game and pride yourself on speed, this shaft will give you a little more power and accuracy.
135 Flex: This will offer you what we’ll call “mid-flex” – if your game requires a combination of brute power and finesse, or if you play multiple positions, this Alliance shaft is probably going to suit you best. This one is neither too stiff, nor too whippy.wa
160 Flex: The 160 flex Alliance caters to the player who needs a very stiff shaft and tends to play with brute power. The stiff 160 will still have some flex in it, but is really constructed for the ultimate in shooting power and is a rugged, more tough shaft. Made for the “heavy” guys (and we don’t mean weight, though players on the heavier side will benefit from the 160)
The Alliance shafts will be available at ComLax in the next few weeks! Stay tuned!

It’s fall, so what better time to try some new heads and have a little fun? For many players at all levels, the autumn provides an ideal time to get out and test out your weapon of choice for the upcoming season. With new product arriving to our stores daily, I had the distinct pleasure of trying the new Warrior M80 X lacrosse head. After only a few sessions of torching my opponents for a few G’s, I noticed some great new features that seperate this head from past others.
The M80 X has a been given a significant face-lift, starting with the sidewall. The new double-X sidewall provides superior stiffness and durability. In addition many multiple string holes along the rail provide a stringers delight. The reinforced scoop design gives you a durable scoop that can scoop up ground balls with ease. The overall stiffness and light weight of the head make this a player favorite for any field player. Currently, the M80 will only be available in (X) universal specs. Please visit us at any of our retail store loactions or click the link above to get yourself one now. Until next time…….Bar Down
