STX Stallion 55u Lacrosse Head Review
Overall, when looking at the Stallion 550u, the main characteristics that stand out are the width of the head, the stiffness, and the stringing. 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. 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. 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 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.
