STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft Review
The Surgeon Scandium is a lower-cost version of the popular Sci-Ti.
Everyone loves the Sci-Ti and there can be major differences between the two when it comes to playing style.
The STX Surgeon Scandium is a shaft that resembles some of the greater shafts of the game, so one can only hope for the best out of it.
The price is actually pretty reasonable for a lacrosse shaft, it does not ask for much. Let’s just say, you are getting what you are paying for.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Grip 9/10
Players usually have their own personal preference when it comes to grip. That is sort of the idea behind taping the shaft and everything.
The STX Surgeon Scandium shaft is slick, but not slippery. There is no sticky annoying grip that gets in the way, but after using it for a little while it could become sort of that slippery that is every player’s nightmare.
We like the feeling of the Scandium.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Appearance 8/10
The only reason to knock 2 points here is because we feel that there are logos or designs everywhere.
Players dont like all of the designs, the straight line that goes down the shaft with STX and Surgeon written all over it. Personally, we would take the simple, more plain look instead of the whole design all over the shaft.
On the other hand, the STX Surgeon Scandium shaft has sort of a sophisticated look to it. Players might be attracted to that kind of style despite the fact that logos and designs sort of dominate our view of the Surgeon Scandium.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Durability 9/10
Scandium is a durable material for the most part. As mentioned before, the STX Scandium shaft resembles the Scandium Pro and the Scandium Pro could last players about a season.
We think that the Scandium Pro was one of the better shafts of the game despite the length of play you could get out of it. If players are looking for a shaft that can last them a lifetime, they may want to avoid this one.
This is something that will rack up a few dings during the third or fourth week of the season. On the bright side, the dents and dings on this shaft add a little bit of character.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Weight 10/10
We are a fan of the weight of this shaft. It is not a heavy shaft, and it is pretty powerful when playing with it. The weight is something about this shaft that cant be knocked. While it is light, it allows for a more versatile player. The only reason we say that is because the weight is different than most shafts on the market. Not necessarily heavier, but just adds a different feel to it. It is something that should draw in a lot of customers.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Price 9/10
The STX Surgeon shaft itself is something that strikes the buyer immediately. The material is common in the lacrosse world, but it is known to wear down after some time.
STX Surgeon Scandium Shaft: Overall 9/10
The shaft is not bad. The Surgeon Scandium is reasonably priced and resembles the Scandium Pro, which is one of the better shafts of the game.
