Overall, when looking at the Stallion 550u, the main characteristics that stand out are the width of the lacrosse head, the stiffness, and the Lacrosse stick stringing.
STX Stallion 550 U Lacrosse Head
With the Stallion being a part of the U series, the shape of the head is very wide. This feature is nice if you are a player who doesn’t like a super pinch head like how the STX Super Power gets. Thus, makes it very easy to catch and pass on the run in order for you to be a transitional threat on the field. Building off the width, the Stallion 550u is a stiff head that can take a beating. Being a durable head can also be beneficial for a middie, who is playing both sides of the field and needs a stick that can go two ways. You can also check out the STX Stallion 700. Throne does a great job in being unique all while maintaining a clean look. Check out their logo placement on their mesh.
Balling with Throne of String & STX
We strung the twig up with Throne of String’s fiber systems performance mesh. This was my first time using one of Throne’s products, overall it is a great purchase. You get one nylon with GOLDEN tips, one top string, a shooter, and plenty of sidewalls. Customers of Throne will definitely notice the packaging of the product, each item was placed individually in a plastic container, and came with a wristband, sticker, postcard. With that being said, Throne’s team hooks you up so you can definitely have some steeze on the field, I mean who else has golden tipped nylons? It is no secret that Throne does not cut any corners when it comes to product presentation.
The Setup – STX Stallion 550u Lacrosse Head
The Stallion 550u was fitted with a mid lacrosse pocket that gives a smooth release to the ball. After breaking in the mesh and some minor adjustments to the pattern, this setup has been very consistent. As a result of the defined channel that was used gave me the incredible pocket hold that I need when I am in traffic. The 550 was fitted with a mid pocket that gives a smooth release to the ball.
