COMPETITIVE LACROSSE WOOD MINI STICKS
The Original Traditional strung mini stick!
BLACKFEET’S Lacrosse Mini Stick
Check out our competitive grade custom strung mini with solid wood handle and solid wood buttend. These play like a game stick – shoot extremely well and do not require adjusting.
Why Wood as a Lacrosse shaft is a question we are asked many times over the course of a day at tournaments, it may be our favorite question. With all the high tech composites and exotic metal alloys available why use as a handle something so basic and ordinary as wood? Players have a variety of concerns and demands in regards to handles. Mostly they look for low weight with high strength, make ‘em light to move fast, make ‘em strong to play another day. We provide wood shafts that are light & strong or heavy & strong and everything in between. We do this as a process and by design but the engineering credit goes to nature – its all wood and solid as solid is. No other wood shaft manufacturer can make the same claims we make about Blackfeet shafts.
The modern shaft brought to the game the ability to replace a broken stick with an identical stick. It was frustrating to break a wood stick and not be able to get the same weight and feel again. At that time wood shafts were not selected and sold by weight so having two similar shafts was rare – we however have always done this, each shaft has its weight inscribed for selection and replacement. We stock a wide range of weights to allow players to find the one that's perfect for them.
Wood’s finest hour is realized during your 1st stick check. Solid wood absorbs the impact that stick checks produce, reducing vibration and the resulting jolt. This results in better ball control and longer possessions. Simply put, “Wood eats up stick checks”. Canadian coaches want their players carrying 2 sticks – one metal or composite and one wood. We say 2 wood sticks: one light, one heavier but who are we to argue with the current world lacrosse champions?
We differ from other providers in that all shafts (except our box shafts) we make are put through a series of end borings to remove weight by removing material from the end opposite the head where strength is not a concern, nor weight & mass desirable. This allows us a lighter shaft that maintains strength in all the right places. We do this without engineering or modifying the ash wood that is already perfectly suited for the task. Harvested directly from the finest ash groves in the world in the Norther Appalachian mountains this is not just any wood.
We invented the wood stick warranty, which is six months, just as long as any metal and most composite sticks. No need to send the broken stick back to us. Breakage within six months is not due to manufacture defects like modern sticks – this is a natural material. While we grade and select we do not know the exact internal adhesion of the 1 million cells per cubic inch under hydrostatic (water) pressure. This internal adhesion produces an amazingly strong structural matrix but there is the possibility of minor flaws, hence the warranty. Blackfeet shafts connect the player to the pocket with natural feel, balance & power.
"Just wanted to thank you guys for making a quality product for my son. He used it in a game for the first time today and was a beast. Everyone was asking where we got the shaft from, and even the referees stopped to take a look at it! We will be ordering more shafts from your company soon. Keep up the good work!"
"Just want to let you know that your product's are really as advertised. I originally purchased a handle two years ago as my first wood shaft. My son recently snapped it in a H.S. game so we ordered 2 more. They arrived Monday and have just a great look/feel. As I run practice (I coach a youth U15 program outside Boston) a bunch of our players often ask to throw with it b/c it's just different-always rave reviews. Kudos on a quality product."
