This is the best purchase I have made so far in lacrosse. The throat is a little narrow but if you string it right it isn't a problem. The best thing is that it's just barely high school legal so the ball stays in and gives good torque thanks to the narrow design (This makes it a great face-off head too) . Also, the scoop on it is like a vacuum cleaner and picks any ball up easily. I'd use a high pocket because of the natural speed you get on your shot. This will allow for a quicker release. Oh and finally, I've had it for two years and there are no signs of it breaking. This is probably one of the best heads out there.
