Warrior Evo 5 Review
The Warrior Evo is a head that has been around the block a time or two. There have been so many different variations of this head it has provided players with a reliable head that has been true for all attackmen players for years. With Warrior releasing the new Evo 5 the head posses all of the traditional characters of the original Evo. The two characteristics that pop in my mind when I think of the Evo is lightweight and a nice stiff head. Weighing in at 4.6 oz the heads is a well-balanced head build. The 5 is nothing different, designed for attackmen, the Evo is legal for both NCAA and high school players.
The Warrior Evo 5 Player Type
Outside Shooters – If you’re an outside shooter who plays both attack and midfield, the Warrior Evo is a dependable widehead to consider. This head is particularly suited for midfielders with a large wind-up when dodging down the alley or for attack men who prefer shooting from low angles.
Feeders From X or Midfield – The Warrior Evo 5x is also primarily used by the feeders on the field looking to pick some apples.
Warrior Evo 5 Technology
Warrior Lacrosse has incorporated the new tilt-tech string hole design which aims to improve pocket tension for a better ball release. Coming from a player’s point of view the Evo is a great head but there are some negatives about the Warrior Evo. The Achilles heel to the Evo is that over time the head tends pinch near the neck of the head. Having played lacrosse for 13 year every Evo that I have owned has either cracked or broken near the throat of the head due to the tendency to pinch over time.
Warrior Evo 5 Stringing
When it comes to picking out a head that suits the style of play you are, one must consider that hole pattern on the head. The Evo allows the player to utilize the head to the fullest potential. The holes allow the player to create a more defined channel in their pocket. You can literally try so many different patterns with this head because of the number of sidewall holes.
