1 - Published April 30, 2014 by in General, Reviews

As far as wooden lacrosse shafts go, RipWood handles are a unique product with a great deal of value for the user. I prefer the feel of lumber in my hands to a metal shaft 99 out of 100 times. I believe wooden shafts are one of the last remaining threads keeping lacrosse connected to it’s roots in Mother Earth.

Epoch Lacrosse has released five generations of lacrosse shafts and today they release their first ever lacrosse head in The Hawk.
