    Indeed the stick is the center piece of the game and it’s very hard to choose the right one. Especially for kids, when I want to balance functionality right now and usability in the future. I mean, they grow fast and they skills on the game grow with them. Do you think it’s a good idea to invest in a more expensive and professional stick right now or buy one of the sticks you recommend here first and upgrade later when needed. Also how do I know if my kids have out-grown their current equipment and need a upgrade? 

    Thanks for this review and comparison article. It has been very helpful.

      Hi, Wei and thank you.

      Excellent questions. 

      You are right that it is essential to think about now and then. But my opinion is that you need to see if the kids like the sport or not in the start. At the same time, things need to be good so is it last long enough that it be with enough quality so the kids can take good development with practice their skills.

      If you save in the quality and the kids want to play the game you many times ended up with buying many sticks. 

      So my advice is that focus on, you can say, the middle.  That is not to start playing like pro equipment but too not buy to cheap, so you need to buy it many times. That is the reason I recommend this three sticks, and you can have similar in mind because this is not the only one, because it is durable and long lasting. All this three stick is both, durable and long lasting, so it is an excellent stick for beginners.

      But at the same time, because you have the kids in mind, I recommend The STX FiddleSTX Mini Super Power Stick because it is precisely for kids who want to begin with lacrosse. As it is for kids, it is made from plastic. The other two is more for adults.

      About when your kids have out-grown their current equipment and needed an upgrade? My experience is that you will see it or get the feeling. But in the same time, ask the staff, coach, etc and get their advice. But you will see how the kids handle the skills and the game and see their development and get the feeling when the time comes.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    My grandson who is 11 years old is learning lacrosse. He grows every day it seems like so I want to get him a stick that will work for him for a while. He is just starting out, so I want to get him a good one that will last him a while. What do you recommend? The team will be playing/practicing 3 days a week starting in November so I think something durable and yet, not too expensive!

    Based on your review, it sounds like the STX FiddleSTX Mini Super Power Stick would be about right for him. Do you know how tough the plastic is? This kid plays hard and is very rough on equipment.

    Thank you for your review of these products and I look forward to your reply.

      Hi, Karin Nauber and thank you.

      I agree that in the start it most important to have durable and not the pro equipment. He is young and needs to focus on skills number one. But at the same time it is important not to buy bad quality because it will not ends long and can be bad for his development as a Lacrosse player.

      Personally, I would choose as you mention, the STX FiddleSTX Mini Super Power Stick. It is for his age, the other two are more for older, and is very durable. About the plastic, it is very rugged plastic heads and shafts. But how tough is always tricky to say.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Lacrosse is not being played in my country, but I  play it sometimes with my friends in the park and usually see it in movies and TV series too. It is a fun game but needs agility and strength of players similar to other sports out there. 

    Yes, you are right, as you mentioned, if you want to learn Lacrosse or any other sports you need to invest firstly in the equipment since these are necessary for determining the games primarily for the first time. If a beginner like me wants to learn Lacrosse, what would you recommend from the 2 Lacrosse sticks for adults you mentioned? Could I instead use the plastic-made sticks first then just upgrade it once I learned the basics?

      Hi, Dan Sicat and thank you.

      If you have in mind playing in the attack, I will choose The STX Men’s Stallion 200 because you can continue to use it as your skills development as an attacker. 

      But if not, I would take The Youper Complete Lacrosse Stick because of the rugged design and high quality. That is an excellent value for the money.

      Hi, Bill and thank you.

      Sticks are the critical thing in Lacrosse. All players need it, but there are different stick used on the field. After to come closer to own goal, your sticks are higher.

      You ask me about give you a guide about things the players need to have and what I do gladly. I have named the important sticks.  Other must-have equipment is a mouthpiece, ball helmets, and the glove. At the moment I am researching things to find out what I can be recommended about this things.

      About Other Protective Equipment are the shoulder pads most important because all players, except the goalkeeper, must have it.

      For a beginner, I would recommend the STX FiddleSTX Mini Super Power Stick, but all of this sticks are mainly good for beginners.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    We’re searching for a replacement stick for our son who’s interested in lacrosse. I don’t know much about the game and quite frankly, until I found your post, I wasn’t even sure there was a difference in sticks. But boy was I wrong. I’m stoked to get some guidance. Thanks man!

      Hi, JB  and thank you.

      Great the article was informative for you. The stick is a huge factor in the game, because not only it is key things to use but also say in which position you are playing. But is understandable that people who don´t know much about the game don´t know it.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    So I’ve been looking for the perfect lacrosse stick for my grandson, and I was thinking about the STX FiddleSTX Mini Super Power Stick and then I came across your article about that exact stick!  I was reading that it is ideal for beginner players, and that is exactly what he is.  I’m so glad you saved me a lot of time looking around the internet trying to figure this out.  I frequent your website, and I trust your content, so I’m going to go ahead and get this one, and I just wanted to thank you for making that easy!
