I had the honor of being selected to review some dope new lacrosse shafts from our friends over at True Temper Lacrosse. Below is my story…
Thoughts on the True Lacrosse Shafts:
Dope!!! Turns out, True Temper has been manufacturing lacrosse shafts for years under other names in the lacrosse industry. Well, their time is now, and they've decided to launch their own line of sweet lacrosse shafts.
Seriously, for over at decade they've been designing the best lacrosse shafts in the game. And believe it or not, they've been producing the world's best golf shafts for over 100 years!
They have their own research and development department who has been testing strength, durability, flex, grip, and design of lacrosse shafts forever. Attack, defense and goalie lacrosse shaft sizes available on these 🙂
True Composite 4.0 Lacrosse Shaft Review
This is definitely one our most favorite lacrosse shafts now. Designed with SmartPly and SmartFlex technologies, this has tremendous strength-to-weight ratio. Just holding it in your hands, you can tell this shaft is well balanced and lightweight.
Coming with a slight concave, you'll notice this helps when needing to make some quick passes or shots. While holding it in your hands you'll notice the texture grip is all you need….no lacrosse tape here!
The SmartFlex technology gives you that necessary lacrosse shaft flex when taking a hard shot….known to increase your shot speed. We're not kidding! Scoop up the flex 6 or flex 9.
True Alloy 2.0 Lacrosse Shaft Review
Holding onto the True lacrosse shaft, alloy version, it feels very similar to any other alloy lacrosse shaft. If you aren't looking to break the bank on your next lax shaft, we recommend the True Alloy 2.0
Designed with 7075 alloy used in the aircraft industry, it has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
The grip feels better than other alloy lacrosse shafts, as it's been sandblasted. Minimal lacrosse tape needed here!
The Bottom Line:
What we love about both of these True lacrosse shafts is they come with a full 6-month warranty. If it breaks, just send it right back in!
Scoop up the True Composite if you've got the money, otherwise the True Alloy is a great starting point.
