*Made by Warrior
*Straight from the mind of MLL superstar Paul Rabil, who personally tweaked and finely tuned this head into the ultimate shooting weapon
*Maximum Truoffset design, coupled with a longer sidewall transition, creates the perfect pocket release giving you more velocity on your shot
*2Shot sidewall allows for multi-color heads in 9 stock colors
*All-Around perfection mixed with ridiculous shot power
*Available in a large variety of colors
Pros: Players that have used this lacrosse head say it offers great pinch, many options for stringing, and countless color options. The Warrior Rabil is also one of the best lacrosse heads for shooting because of its impressive shooting power.
Potential Drawbacks: Players have given the Warrior Rabil mixed reviews on its durability. Some players say this lacrosse head is very durable while a few players have said you should only use it for shooting.
The Warrior Rabil is a decent value as it’s currently on sale for $99.00. We’d recommend you consider purchasing another lacrosse stick, however, due to the Rabil’s mediocre durability.
*Made by STX
*Strategic use of C-Channel technology provides more strength and stability at the lower section of the head without adding weight
*STX’s scalloped scoop design allows for extra flex when shooting which provides power and snap
*Increased number of stringing holes for a variety of stringing options
*Legal for NFHS sanctioned high school play
*Available in many different colors
Pros: This lacrosse head is very stiff. It also was designed with a shape that’ll give you excellent accuracy on your shots and passes.
Potential Drawbacks: The throat of this lacrosse head can pinch a bit if used frequently on faceoffs.
The STX Lacrosse Proton Power 2 is an inexpensive, high performing lacrosse head. We wouldn’t recommend this lacrosse head to players that are faceoff specialists, but most other players on the field would get good use of it. That’s why the STX Proton Power 2 is a good value at $67.01.
*Made by STX
*Updated, authentic STX design delivers the best combination of ball retention and catching ability
*STX Forward Cant TM for quicker passing and shooting
*Strategically placed stringing holes makes stringing the perfect pocket easy for even inexperienced stringers
*Open scoop improves ground ball pick-ups
Pros: The STX Viper comes ready for you to use straight out of the box. This lacrosse head is relatively lightweight, and is designed to allow you to easily pick-up ground balls.
Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse head is strung with hard mesh, which is generally considered better for intermediate and advanced players. Beginners, however, often prefer using lacrosse heads with soft mesh because it’s more forgiving to those who are still developing their skills.
The STX Viper 2 is a great lacrosse head for the advanced beginner or intermediate player on a budget. You can currently purchase this lacrosse head for just $56.74.

Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse head is only available in size X. In addition, this lacrosse head comes unstrung, meaning you’ll have to do the stringing yourself.
The Warrior Evo 3X unstrung lacrosse head is a good value at its current price of $89.00.

Potential Drawbacks: This lacrosse is available in only a few colors. Beyond that, however, we’ve heard few complaints about the Blueprint’s performance.
The Brine Blueprint is a good value at $90.00.

The other obvious thing to note about the STX Crux 300 is that it’s a complete stick included in the package, and that you won’t have to buy a stick separately as is the case with many of the other lacrosse heads for sale.
Potential Drawbacks: The STX Crux 300 is designed for the women’s lacrosse game. For that reason, boys won’t want to purchase this lacrosse stick.
The STX Crux 300 is an excellent value for women lacrosse players at $114.99.
