The all new STX Cell 4 lacrosse gloves have a new flared cuff which allows for the most backhand mobility. In the new STX Cell 4 lacrosse glove there is a better ventilated palm and more room in the backhand. STX also loosed up the thumb a bit with wider padding. You can actually move your thumb in a circular motion in these Cell 4's and that will give you a much better handle and control on the stick. This, combined with the same Ax Suede palm that STX is famous for. Great grip and superior ventilation. We are highly recommending these gloves as one of the top picks for advanced youth all the way through college.
