"Budget" defense lacrosse stick designed for newer players that are looking for their first defensive lacrosse shaft. No need to break the bank while the kids figure out if this is truly their position. Most of these shafts end up getting cut down for the younger guys. (general rule of thumb is to go about one head length above the top of their helmet. This shaft will get that youth player through a whole season before they grow out of it and are ready to move up to some lighter and stronger technology.
