Okay fellas, I need a new handle just in case my 1994 STX Titanium Plus breaks on me....what are you guys using out there?

Warrior Kryptolyte...although I have a feeling a new Serpent shaft is in my future.

I'm using the STX Premier.

I would also recommend:

STX Titanium - a little heavier but wont break
Warrior Kryptopro
Warrior Levitation - very pricey but will not ever break, I used one throughout college then gave it to a guy who was still playing.

I would stay away from the Brine shafts, they seem to break pretty easy.

I disagree...I've had an F15 as a DPole for 5+ years now with no dings, dents, or breaks. I also have 2 F22s 6+ years old which have never broken. My ignite optra (F55) is the lightest handle I've ever played with and, again, no dents, dings, breaks after 1+ years.

The older brine shafts, F15 and F22 and F55, were great shafts. I was commenting on the newer models. They dont seem to be made as well.

I have always been a fan of the Warrior Titanium Classic.

I'm using a serpent SC-1 and it's probably the best shaft I've ever used. Replaced my kryptolyte with it.

Of course you like it, it was free :lol:

I would wait until sometime in Oct, when the new Warrior Dolomite shaft comes out. Its a mix of the Titanium and Krypto Pro.

The Dolomite shaft is nasty!!!!!!!!

Towbey, I haven't paid for lacrosse equipment in YEARS. Everything I use is vendor handouts or manufacturer handouts.

I can honestly say that the SC1 is the lightest shaft I've played with ever.

And of course you'd like the Warrior shafts... you work for them! :)

Is the Dolomite gonna be $70 like the serpent shaft?

And those orange ones do look sweet. If they weren't limited edition I'd beg the serpent guys for one. I already know they won't give me one.

Good lord, I might have to go with the Dolomite shaft on the name alone.

I agree, the new brine shafts kinda stink, but I still use my old trusty F15 that I have had for 7 years...
