Warrior Reflective Series:
Warrior lacrosse has been one of the most innovative lacrosse companies on the market for the past 22 years. When David Morrow founded Warrior in 1992 he released the first Titanium lacrosse stick which revolutionized the lacrosse world. Now almost every lacrosse company features handles that include titanium or titanium enhanced alloys. Warrior always pushes their products to the edge with their innovation and once again they have done this with their new “Reflective Series.”
The silver accents on the product are the reflective material, which is similar to what runners wear on reflective vests.

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.
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 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.
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.

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