The best lacrosse attack shafts for 2020 all have two things in common. They are lightweight and every shaft on this list needs to be tough enough to take collegiate level punishment. The best lacrosse attack shafts in the game all come from vendors that have made an investment in advanced technologies and grips. A shaft is not just a shaft - it's where your body is connected to the technology of the game! The top shafts are composed of both metal and composite carbons. If you want to learn the difference between metal and carbon lacrosse shafts watch our video. Here are a few of our Pro picks for the best lacrosse shafts of 2020, or watch the video above to learn more.
The Maverik Hyperlite lacrosse shaft weighs in at under 5 ounces and boasts one of the best carbon fiber weaves in the game. The Hyperlite is designed for those offensive players that want the lightest feeling shaft for speed and handling. These are about as light as they come and have a huge following with the elite high school guys who can appreciate the featherweight feel and stiff no flex carbon for added accuracy.
Epoch Dragonfly lacrosse shafts come in different flex ranges and are designed for high end shooters who want that extra pop in their game. We recommend the Epoch Dragonfly IQ9 series for any players shooting under 85 MPH and the IQ5 series for the bigger guys. These shafts will typically add 3-5 MPH to your shots, which is just enough to buzz the goalie's tower for most players. Slightly gritty texture and the most popular of all the carbon shafts by far.
The ECD Pro 2.0 lacrosse shaft hit the best sellers list in one week. The Carbon Pro 2.0 Speed is made for speedy releases. The High Kick Point provides the power you need to make a ripping shot. ECD utilized years of carbon fiber research and development to build on the industry-leading Carbon Pro, and they have once again raised the bar for performance. ECD paired their Kick Point Technology with new flex profiles and raised texture for a style-specific playing experience you will not find anywhere else.
The new ECD Pro 2.0 Power attack lacrosse shaft is made for powerful releases. Our pros think the colorway of this shaft is on fire with the gold accents. The technology is amazing as well. The Low Kick Point provides the power you need to make a ripping shot. The price point here at $139 is right in line with the best carbon shafts on the market.
The STX SC-TI lacrosse shaft has been part of college lacrosse for the past 10 years. STX revamped the Sc-TI this year with three shapes, X, R, & S. The STX SC-TI X is our most popular, since it has a similar shape profile of the old Surgeon SC-ti and is the lightest of the SC-TIs at 140grams, just under 5 oz. The combination of scandium and titanium produces one of the lightest and most durable shafts in the game. For those players that appreciate the metal feel, when you pick one of these up it feels light as paper, but put an end on the ground and try and bend it and it simply won't budge. Take a look at the big guy's sidelines and you will see these everywhere.
The Maverik Apollo is the lightest metal shaft that Maverik makes and a great choice attackmen. The Apollo shaft is made from scandium titanium materials, making this shaft ultra-lightweight and strong. This shaft is military-grade consistency and is the number one choice of PLL player Joey Sankey. The speed shape and slightly bead-blasted grip gives a great feel for attackmen driving to the cage or coming from the X.
The Warrior Burn Pro Carbon attack shaft is one of the lightest and strongest on the market at only 125 grams. In stress tests and hit tests, the Burn Pro shaft frequently outperforms the other guys that claim to have the strongest on the market. These Burn Pro Carbon shafts are priced in-line with the other top dogs in carbon, but the big story here is how stiff the shaft is. The stiffness allows for one of the most consistent and accurate carbon shafts on the market. This is one of the few carbon shafts that is completely hollow, allowing you to fit any head onto the shaft.
