STX Launches First Lacrosse Head and Handle Designed Specifically for Faceoffs

The highly anticipated Duel will be available for sale nationwide beginning October 19th.

Baltimore-based STX, LLC, a global sporting goods leader, today announced its new Duel men’s lacrosse head and shaft, which are optimized to perform at the faceoff X.

The highly anticipated Duel, which will be available for sale nationwide beginning October 19, debuts STX’s revolutionary patent pending throat plug. The throat plug allows for a shorter throat, which enables the player to get their hands closer to the ball during faceoffs. The head also features a faceoff-specific flex pattern and a third screw hole through the throat plug that provides additional torsional stability.

“The Duel is exactly what faceoff guys have been asking for. Its shorter, stable throat provides a solid advantage for faceoff specialists,” said Chris Mattes, Florida Launch Midfielder and Co-Founder of the Faceoff Academy. “After testing it, I was blown away by its flexibility and grab on the ball.”

The technology incorporated within the Duel handle is also designed to maximize performance during faceoffs. Its rigid Clamp Profile enables the player to gain maximum leverage on the draw.

“The Duel is the industry’s first fully integrated faceoff system and is arguably the most advanced piece of equipment that we’ve launched,” said Jim Benton, Director of Product Management at STX. “Utilizing next generation technologies, the Duel is engineered to dominate at the faceoff X and will change the game for faceoff specialists.”
