STX Eclipse Complete Goalie Stick
The Eclipse goalie head has long been the standard-bearer of quality and functionality in a piece of lacrosse gear. This one's at the top of the list because it has it all; stiff open sidewall construction in an offset head that promotes excellent ball control and accurate passing. The scoop is wide and has a subtle tapered shape, so taking ground balls is effortless. The stopping area on this head is among the widest on this list and there are a wealth of available stringing holes so you can build your pocket the way you like it. The shaft that it comes with is STX's AMP 6000 aluminum alloy, which is pretty standard for complete stick packages. In most cases, you're usually paying for the head, and the included shaft is a no-frills handle that you almost get for free to complete the product. But STX has designed their handle to stand up to all kinds of conditions at the cage and it will show some wear and tear in due time. This shaft will help any young player develop their skills enough to graduate to another that may be more to their liking soon enough. But one thing's for sure, the head will likely remain the same.
