STX Arrow Lacrosse Head Review and History
When the STX Arrow first came to market it was designed for box players who were transitioning to field lacrosse. The majority of box players at the time started to pinch their heads which made them illegal for field play. STX designed the Arrow lacrosse head to conform to NCAA standards along with having a very narrow pinch. The idea was to get around the NCAA rules by making the top section of the head very wide while the rest of the head still had that super narrow pinch. Unfortunately, the Arrow was not as popular compared to other heads that were coming out which translated to a short life cycle of the design. Due to the manufacturing of the head only lasting a short period of time, the head has become very collectible.
