StringKing creates a game-changing shaft
By Nathan Junk
Lacrosse is often viewed as the fastest game on two feet, and to play fast, you need equipment that is built for speed. A players stick should be the lightest piece of equipment he or she owns. This has been a difficult task for lacrosse manufacturers’ to complete over the years, due to the materials that the stick is made up of. The shafts usually consist of metals such as aluminum are scandium, which are durable metals, and they ultimately add to the weight of the stick. However, StringKing Lacrosse has created an aluminum shaft weighing only 130 grams, making it the lightest on the market. The light weight of the shaft allows a player to shoot faster, make crisper passes, and maneuver his or her stick with much more speed and swiftness. In the past, shafts with a light weight have proven to be weak and have broken in half at high levels of play such as in the college or professional games.StringKing metal is incredibly durable and firm, as it was put through thousands of grueling tests to ensure maximum strength and consistency. It is virtually “dent proof”. Grip is also an important attribute in a lacrosse shaft. StringKing Metal has a very strong grip, as the surface of the shaft was bead blasted and anodized to provide a smooth yet textured feel. The shaft is available in four different colors, black, grey, silver, and nickel, and sells for a price of $ 99.99. It was released to the public on November 6, 2015. The StringKing Metal is a unique shaft that will prove to be a ground-breaking product for the lacrosse world.
