We are introducing three new points of reference, or measurements, that correlate to specific performance attributes. We have identified that, often, players are looking for a head with a “quick release” enabling them to throw a swift, fast, pass or shot. The other performance element desired by the games top players is a head that is “most-offset”, creating ultimate ball control and feel. We use the center axis of the shaft as a major point of reference when calculating measurements because it is a constant on all brands. More importantly, however, the center axis allows the measurements to be calculated in relationship to a player’s hands.”
We are introducing three new terms to the lacrosse market.
Lie: The distance the scoop “lies” from the center axis of the shaft.
Sweet Spot: The particular position on the bottom rail of a lacrosse head that is the furthest distance from the center axis of the shaft. The Sweet Spot sits at the vertex – the point of the bottom rail that stops curving down from the center axis of the shaft – and begins to curve back up towards the this center point of reference.
Travel: The distance the ball has to move to be released from the head when using the sweet spot as a starting point.
The Sequel is designed for the two-handed dodger looking for a quicker release than most conventional heads available. The Sequel’s design offers a high pocket and it’s Lie provides a quicker release while keeping the ball tucked under the shooting strings.
The Prequel is designed for the one-handed dodger looking for a quicker release than most conventional heads available. The Prequel’s design offers one of the deepest pockets in the game, it’s Lie provides a quicker release than any other head in it’s class because we engineered the distance the ball has to travel to be shorter.
Laid Back Profile
The laid back profile and lowered scoop keeps the ball tucked under the shooting strings when cradling and dodging for maximum, hold while providing an optimal release point and improving ball trajectory vs. conventional offset heads when passing and shooting.
The Hawk Prequel improves upon the traditional curved profile by incorporating our Laid Back Technology creating a new hybrid design.
Mid/High Pocket Design
The Sequel’s laid back profile is engineered for that perfect Zone 4 mid to high pocket and allows for a lightening quick release, superior ball control and maximum feel.
Mid Pocket Design
The Prequel’s curved profile is engineered for that perfect Zone 3 mid pocket and allows for superior ball control and maximum feel and a quicker release than most conventional heads available.
