So you’re just getting into Lacrosse, or you’re buying a new head for a friend or relative who plays. Either way, we’re going to help you! We’ve researched and reviewed a selection of the best Lacrosse heads to bring you the best recommendations in our lacrosse head buying guide. Check out the factors we used to determine which heads are the best below. Then we can show you our picks for the perfect lacrosse head! Let’s get started.
Type: Lacrosse heads can come strung, which means the net is already in place. More often, they come unstrung and allow you to choose your own netting and put it on. It’s a personal choice more than anything.
Color Options: This is the number of colors that the head comes in. They are often coordinated with teams or else left up to personal preference. There are usually a lot of options for different colors in plastic heads.
Made in: This refers to the country of manufacture. The vast majority of the time, the lacrosse heads we looked at were made in the USA and ship only within the USA. This is important for some people to know.
NCAA/NFHS Compliant: Is the head regulation for both college and high school levels of play? Sometimes they are one or the other, but most are universal, meaning they can be used in all levels of competition.
Reinforced: Is the head reinforced? You’re going to want something that’s going to last instead of breaking the second time you use it, so look for something with a reinforced scoop or side rails to make sure that it’s tough.
Weight: This is how much the head weighs. Some positions might want a lighter head to make their game go smoother, while some people need a heavier piece to enable them to play well. It depends on your position and preference.
Now we can show you our lacrosse head reviews! We’ve brought you only the best for our recommendations. Choose one based on what type of play you like, and what type of head that you need for your position.
