- Easy setup and beginner friendly
- Ideal for children
The STX Lacrosse lacrosse stick is a one-piece professional lacrosse stick, and its a great stick for beginners as well as experienced players. This beginner's stick features a new shaft design, giving a softer feel than other STX sticks.
Despite the fact that it is a youth stick, it is okay enough for a start in a pick up game, where you won't be using it as much as you would an exact replica. The build is there and the lacrosse stick isn't bad, but it's not good enough for an actual game.
The real problem with this stick is that it doesn't meet age requirements for college and high school, so it is really best suited for beginners.
When I tried it out the shaft was nice and thin in my hand, making it easier to stop when I did something wrong. Bending the stick was a lot easier than with other sticks I tried as well.
The pocket of the STX lacrosse stick was nice and soft, making it easy to catch any ball that hit the ground but not so easy to catch a ball that was hit into the pocket. Overall, this is a nice beginners stick, but it wouldn't be good enough for a game of high-college or pro.
I would recommend this to a younger person who wants to play lacrosse, as it is definitely not old enough to be of any use for older leagues, but it's good enough as a starter for some people.
