Our Pro's don't mind the little bit of extra weight that this head carries because it feels so sturdy for passing, shooting and ground balls. The Pro's at ECD say that they haven't really noticed the added weight once they started playing. With the increased weight, tight face, shape retention, and the growing trend of d-guys using more offensive minded heads, this head is going to be popular with every position. We predict this will be the go to head for LSM's and defense, even though it is designed for a more offensive player. This lacrosse head is an absolute beast!

The Maverik Kinetik is for a power player who isn't afraid to take the outside shot. This head was designed for velocity and accuracy when the game in on the line. Our Pro's think this is a top midfield lacrosse head. The backside of the Maverik Kinetik has a small but sharp angle where the top of the throat flairs to the top of the head. Our Pros love this design. What happens is that the row of diamonds in the mesh at this point gets immediate added tension by being pulled out across this sharp angle. So right where your first throw string lies, there is an increased tension on the mesh. This allows the ball to snuggle right up against the top of the pocket and literally snap itself out as it releases up to the channel.This lacrosse head also has a elongated and slightly tapered pocket channel. Our Pro Stringers strung this up with two different types of mesh and found this lacrosse head to be one of the best shoot on the run heads we have ever tested. Our Pro's think this lacrosse head is an instant classic and will be one of the top choices for all the Maverik sponsored teams, you have found it. CUSTOMIZE YOUR POCKET

East Coast Dyes Hero2.0 Faceoff lacrosse mesh was inspired by players seeking greatness. At the faceoff X, the smallest advantage can be the differenc between a win and a loss. That's why we are introducing our FO Weave. It's designed to give you the increased movement, feel, and responsiveness you need to own the X. The FO Weave adds support to the outside of the pocket and thins out the channel to allow the pocket to move freely in and out while maintaining its structure. Combine that with the ZoneTech and you have a serious advantage.Designed with ZoneTech - the sides feature Innegra, the lightest fiber in the world, which is less elastic than ECD LTH Fibers. These rigid fibers funnel the ball into the channel and provide a lighter, more consistent pocket that will bag out less over time. The ZoneTech channel features LTH Fibers, which are strategically placed to provide the soft touch and reponsive feel that you rely on when the game is on the line.
The Stringking 4F mesh ket is made with their best selling Tri-twist patters that gives better grip on the ball and weighs only 14 grams. The kit also comes with everything you need ( including premium shooters and sidewalls ) to dial up that perfect face off pocket. Game balls really stick to this mesh and it feels like the new weave is really grabbing on to the new rubber. This 4F is specifically made for face off guys that want that "stickyness" feel on the clamp. Also be sure to check out the Mark 2F face off head described below.The new Stringking Mark 2F head is the latest in a series of elite level face off heads specifically designed for two main advantages... increased ball control area on the clamp and a kinder scoop angle for handling ground balls. The first thing you will notice on the Stringking 2F is the elongated throat. Stringking pulled the narrow channel of the throat shape up as high as possible to create the maximum channel and pocket surface area for controlling the ball. As all good FOGOs are aware, its not just the battle for the quick clamp.. its the battle for real estate along the line that counts too. As players push up into the scoop of an opponents scoop with their glove, the head of the stick slides a bit down the line.The extra length in the throat adds a big advantage as the ball gets caught up in that long channel rather than up towards the opponents scoop. In the old days, FOGOs used to bake their heads and then reform them to match these longer throat designs. Stringking has now taken that concept and worked it in with a massive number of string holes, that offer guys who know how to string even greater advantage depending on where and how they secure those knots.The scoop has a steeper angle which also channels the ball into the sweet spot quicker. These heads also can come strung with the new Stringking 2F mesh which is soft and weighs in at only 14 grams.

ECD Hero Striker Mesh 2.0 is the next generation best lacrosse mesh option for advanced players of all age groups. The story here is the ability to weave two types of fibers into the core of the mesh. This produces a softer channel and a more rigid sides of the mesh for an optimal release runway that literally rockets the ball out of the pocket while shooting but produces more hold and feel while cradling and ball handling. This whole process is called ZONE TECH and is exclusive to the new East Coast Dyes 2.0 Hero mesh. Striker refers to the best selling technology that helps you line your pocket up perfectly by locating the two stripes right down the center of the pocket... so you can quickly tell if your pocket is bagged out straight or not . Let's take a closer look at the technology. Zone Tech essentially comprises two separate and unique areas and fiber of the mesh piece. The inner channel features LTH fibers. Which are a softer, more pliable weave that has a bit of give. This is where the ball sits in the sweet spoy and the LTC weave extends from the bottom of the throat up through the top of the scoop where it starts to fan out a bit.On either side of the LTH channel are the lightest fibers in the world ( according to ECD ) called Innegra. These pieces are woven tightly together and are slightly stiffer than the channel material of LTH. This fibers funnel the ball into the main channel and provide a more consistent and lighter pocket that will bag out less over time.SEE MORE AT THE ECD HERO MESH REVIEWHero 2.0 is also hydrophobic ( which basically means is allergic to water. ) Since the very beginning ECD has prided their lines on consistent performance in all weather conditions.
