The Best Face Off Lacrosse Heads

1) Warrior Blade Pro Unstrung Lacrosse Head

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Warrior
*Ultimate midfield head – long narrow pocket channel for consistent release on fast breaks and the perfect scoop angle for ground ball pickups
*Sidewall design is angled and sloped specifically for face-offs so you can easily slip under your opponents head to gain position on every draw
*Surprisingly stiff, this head can also dominate on the defensive end of the field
*2-way middle head perfect for mining face-offs and transitioning the ball up the field
*Color: White

Pros: The Warrior Blade Pro is one of the best lacrosse face off heads because it’s designed with significant flex to make winning face-offs easy. This lacrosse head also has the perfectly angled side wall so that you’re able to easily scoop up ground balls.

Potential Drawbacks: The Warrior Blade Pro has received mixed negative reviews on its durability.

Overall Value:

The Warrior Blade Pro is a decent value at $62.87.

2) Warrior Revo Unstrung Lacrosse Head-X Universal Spec (White)

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Warrior
*Wider face shape allows defensive players to easily pick off passes.
*Reinforced sidewall detail gives you maximum strength along the entire length of the sidewall.
*The perfect scoop angle lets you easily scoop up ground balls on the run.

Pros: The Warrior Revo is one of the best lacrosse face off heads because it’s strong, and has a wider face shape for easily scooping up ground balls. It’s also great for playing defense and intercepting passes.

Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse head isn’t made specifically for face offs. This means you may have durability problems with this head if you regularly use it for face offs.

Overall Value:

The Warrior Revo is a good overall lacrosse head, that performs relatively well on face offs. It’s also for sale at $52.95, and is a good value at that price.

3) Brine Edge X Unstrung Lacrosse Head

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Brine
*Brine’s all-time best selling head
*Thicker rail and scoop design for dishing or punishing stick checks
*Wide face shape helps with picking off passes and scooping up ground balls
*Available in several colors including: Carolina, Forest Green, Neon Green, and Orange

Pros: You have lots of color options if you go with the Brine Edge X lacrosse head. The Brine Edge X may not be the best lacrosse face-off head, but it still performs better than most heads for faceoffs because of its wider face shape.

Potential Drawbacks: We’ve heard few complaints about the Brine Edge X. It’s a great defensive stick, but we can’t honestly say it’s the best lacrosse head for face-offs.

Overall Value:

The Brine Edge X is a solid purchase at $70.00.

4) Brine Edge Superlight Unstrung Lacrosse Head, White, X-Spec

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Brine
*Patented NOZ Technology reduces the weight to a mere 4.1 oz.
*TruOffset paired with slight Flare helps to maintain control of the ball during transition
*Wider face shape is prime for picking off passes and scooping up ground balls

Pros: The Brine Edge is lightweight. It’s also a solid lacrosse face off head because it has a wider face shape and is designed to make it easy for you to maintain possession of the ball during transition.

Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse head is only available in one color. It also comes unstrung. Therefore, you’ll have to string this head yourself.

Overall Value:

The Brine Edge Superlight is a good beginner budget purchase at $49.99. Advanced players are likely to benefit investing in more premium equipment, however.

5) Warrior REVO X Men’s Lacrosse Head

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Warrior
*Wider face shape allows defensive players to easily pick off passes.
*Reinforced sidewall detail gives you maximum strength along the entire length of the sidewall.
*The perfect scoop angle lets you easily scoop up ground balls on the run.
*Color: White

Pros: This may be Warrior’s best lacrosse face off head because of its wider face shape and perfect scooping angle.

Potential Drawbacks: This head comes pre-strung. Most players like pre-strung heads, but some players like unstrung lacrosse heads so that they can more easily customize the head.

Overall Value:

The Warrior Revo X Men’s lacrosse head is a solid value at $70.00.

6) Warrior REV2 Unstrung Lacrosse Head, White, HS

Manufacturer Specs:

*Brine’s all-time best selling head
*Thicker rail and scoop design for dishing or punishing stick checks
*Wide face shape helps with picking off passes and scooping up ground balls
*Available in several colors including: White, and Neon Green

Pros: This is a good lacrosse head for defensive players who like to anticipate and intercept passes. It’s also a decent lacrosse head for face offs because of its wide face shape.

Potential Drawbacks: This stick is strung, but it’s also more expensive than the unstrung Brine Edge X lacrosse head. You have to decide if paying an extra $15 to receive your lacrosse head pre-strung is worth it to you. Stringing at home by hand is possible, too.

Overall Value:

The Brine Edge X is a decent value at $85.00.

8) Warrior Revolution 2.0 Strung Lacrosse Head (White)

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by Warrior
*Wider face shape allows defensive players to pick off passes
*Reinforced sidewall gives you maximum strength along the entire length of the sidewall
*The perfect scoop angle lets you easily scoop up ground balls on the run

Pros: This is a strong lacrosse head that performs relatively well on face offs.

Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse head comes pre-strung, but is significantly more expensive than the unstrung REV2 lacrosse head.

Overall Value:

The Warrior Revolution 2.0 isn’t expensive at $69.00. We don’t think it’s a good value for you though. You’re better off saving $30, getting the Warrior REV2 lacrosse head, and stringing it yourself.

9) STX Stallion Unstrung Head

Manufacturer Specs:
*Made by STX
*Engineered for strength and stability
*C-Channel technology provides extra strength at the Faceoff X.
*Sidewall braces provide extra stability on outside shots and ground balls
*Bottom rail designed specifically for high pocket placement
*Strategically placed stringing holes
*Available in multiple colors including: Green, Red, and Orange

Pros: The STX Stallion is the best lacrosse head for face offs we’ve seen in regards to durability. Because of the Stallion’s C-Channel technology, you don’t have to worry about this lacrosse head breaking every two months at the Faceoff X.

Potential Drawbacks: The STX Stallion comes unstrung, and may be a bit too much of an investment for beginning players.

Overall Value:

The STX Stallion is more expensive than most other lacrosse heads at $99.99. It does offer excellent performance at this price, however, and we’d highly recommend the Stallion to you if you’re an intermediate or advanced player.
