Mark 2D · Mark 2D Lacrosse Head
Our highest performing heads.
The Mark 2D head features a stiff construction and wider face shape designed for harder checks and better ground ball control. Every defensemen in lacrosse needs the tools of the trade.
Made for players.
Just because you play defense doesn’t mean you can’t perform on offense. The 29 sidewall holes, higher side profile, and slightly pinched throat of the Mark 2D gives you a pocket you can actually play with.
Stiffer is better.
We used advanced software to make the Mark 2D stiffer and stronger in all the right places. By identifying high-impact areas, we used material more efficiently to create a tougher head that won’t weigh you down.
Better for ground balls.
Everyone knows ground balls win games. Attack the ball from any angle knowing your head was engineered to give you every advantage possible.
Lighter is better.
Removing material from low-stress areas gives you a lighter head for faster hands and harder checks.
Not only does our locking bolt stop head rattle, it also makes the Mark 2D even stiffer. You get the most power, accuracy, and consistency because your head limits flex on hard throws and checks.

Powell Lacrosse – 2018 Gear Reviews
Powell Lacrosse is following up a strong 2017 with their 2018 offering, and it’s exciting stuff. We love to see the new T-shirts, apparel, and accessories, and it’s all worth checking out over at PowellLacrosse.com, but for this 2018 Gear Review, I am going to focus on the new shafts and heads that Powell Lacrosse recently released.
Stay tuned for a ton more 2018 Gear Reviews coming at you over the next couple of weeks, featuring all of the top brands in the game.
Powell’s original offering of product was very impressive, but their second generation of product allows them to enter the elite stratosphere of lacrosse equipment manufacturing. This stuff is legit, priced very competitively, and is well worth your consideration when you’re looking for new lacrosse gear this year.
Both of the new heads follow the Pioneer line, first established with the original Powell Lacrosse head (the OG Pioneer), but both the Pioneer II Defense head and the Pioneer II Attack head have a lot of new features to talk about, and both heads represent a truly huge leap for this growing lacrosse brand. On top of two new heads, Powell Lacrosse also released second generation products for their two elite level shafts, and like the heads, these shafts are really pushing the Powell product line to new and exciting levels.
2018 Powell Lacrosse – NEW Heads
I will get to the details of each head below, but before I get to the plastic, I need to talk about the Powell Lacrosse factory pocket. Listen, I’ve strung a ton of sticks in my day. I’ve NEVER played with a factory pocket… until now. I used a Powell Lacrosse head down in New Orleans for the Mardi Gras tourney, and I didn’t change a thing. Right out of the box, the pocket was good to go, and worked perfectly. Coming from someone who restrings EVERY stick I get and is very picky, this means a lot. The Powell Lacrosse factory custom pocket is the best in the business. Hands down.
Pioneer II Attack head – This head is going to be incredibly popular with ball handlers. If you’re the team’s QB, a dodging middie, or slick attackman, this head is going to be perfect for you. It’s wide enough to catch anything or pick up a loose ball in traffic, but if you’ve got a good handle, the ball is not coming out of this stick once you get it, because it’s also narrow enough from throat to scoop that a good cradle really lodges the ball in the sweet spot.
The head is stiff enough for good GBs in the dirt, but even with this stiffness, what really stands out is the head’s lightness in your hands. Fewer struts in the sidewall help lighten the load, and cutaways on the inside of the face take it further. The Powell mesh is also really light! This results in the ultimate connection to the ball, and when the rock is in your stick, you can really feel it, giving you that extra edge of confidence.
For the elite offensive player, the Pioneer II Attack checks all the boxes and should prove to be a favorite for any offensive star who gives it a chance. It looks clean, plays smooth, and provides all the power and accuracy you could ever want. I can see some LSMs and d-mids choosing this head as well, especially for guys who like to push it in transition or carry the ball up the field. I also think this head could have some potential for face offs if it gets really broken in and softened up, as the tough plastic and strut design will allow it to serve for a full season.
It doesn’t matter where on the field you’re using it, the Pioneer II Attack head is built to last. The custom factory pocket is superb, but if you like to string your own heads, the Attack head is a beauty for stringing. No matter the route you choose, you’ll be happy with your choice.
Pioneer II Defense head – The “D” head from Powell Lacrosse is really fantastic. Like many other defensive heads out there, the Powell head is a little wider, stiffer, and tougher than its offensive counterpart, but unlike a lot of other D heads out there, it is not JUST a defensive head. In fact, it might just be my favorite head on the market right now OVERALL, and that’s saying something.
The Pioneer II Defense head is stiff. It can give, and take, a ton of abuse. It does not warp, it does not break, and it’s face shape is to die for. I’m in love here. I played defense in college, but now I fancy myself as an offensive player. I want a stiff head, with a good catching area, and a tighter throat where I can create a good channel and high mid to low pocket that moves around a little bit. At the same time, I want the pocket to be locked down, and throw consistently, while also having a soft feel for catching. The Pioneer II Defense head meets each and every one of these requirements, and I’ve been using it to play midfield, attack, and offense in box lacrosse.
Now if you’re wondering how I can use a heavy D head to play offense, wonder no longer, because this is one of the ways where the Powell D head is very different from its competition – the Pioneer II Defense head is actually really light! It’s amazing that Powell has been able to create a head that is as stiff and tough as it is, without being bulky or having any additional weight. This allows O players to sling the rock with ease, and it allows defenders to throw crazy checks or pick up loose balls from anywhere. This head is really a bit of a revelation, and I’m loving it. I haven’t owned two of the same head for years, but I now have a gamer and a back up, and they are both Powell Pioneer II Defense heads.
Like the Attack head, the Defense head has an amazing custom factory pocket. It’s ready to play right away, but if you want to string up your own, the D head is also perfect for any type of pocket. These heads string up like a dream, and in my opinion it’s perfect for any player on the field, no matter what position they play.
2018 Powell Lacrosse – NEW Shafts
Mighty Black Pro shaft – I’ve always liked the idea of composite shafts, but in practice most of the shafts offered were either too heavy, or got soft and turned into a wet noodle. If I’m playing field, I want a stiff shaft that will let me shoot hard and accurate. If I’m playing box, I want a stiff shaft that can deliver a good crosscheck and stand up to some abuse. For a long time, I simply couldn’t find a shaft that really delivered on my needs.
Enter the 2018 Mighty Black Pro and my concerns have been addressed fully. Not only is the new shaft extremely light (145 grams), but it is super stiff and now I’ve found a composite shaft that does the job! The Mighty Black Pro delivers a beating, and it takes a beating, and then it comes back asking for more. It doesn’t dent or ding, it doesn’t get soft, and it’s a fantastic option!
Personally, I always loved the stiffness of metal shafts, but the feel of composite shafts was also attractive, and I never found something that hit both points. Now I have, and it’s looking more and more like my full gamer is going to be a Powell set up.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME? These guys are making great products, and I like using great products. I need all the help I can get out there! The shaft comes in a rough pebble finish, or a smooth matte finish, further allowing players to get exactly what they want.
Bloodline Sc Ti Shaft – Of the four products in this review, the Bloodline Sc Ti is probably the least modified product, and seeing as it was Powell’s top selling shaft last year, that makes a lot of sense! When you’re looking for a light, tough, classic metal shaft, this is going to be your jam.
I’m partial to composites, as you read above, but that is really just personal preference. I like how it feels in my hands, and I can’t really explain it beyond that. For a lot of players, they feel the same way, except they feel that way about metal shafts, and it’s totally fair. The great thing about the Bloodline Sc Ti is that it’s the same weight as the Mighty Black Pro, it provides the same wonderful ratio of strength to light weight, and the only huge difference is that it’s made out of metal!
So basically, if you want a stiff, strong, tough, and light shaft Powell has you covered. You can get it in metal or composite, and then choose from a couple different finishes. If you want to add some color in, Powell can hook you up, and they have a number of other shafts (and their OG head) available at lower price points.
Even if you buy their most elite product, you won’t break the bank purchasing any of this stuff. Every product reviewed above sells for less than $100 on its own, and if you buy a complete stick (any shaft, any head), you can get it for $150 or less.
For 2018, Powell is offering a new line of high quality product at very reasonable price points. Their shafts are light, stiff, and tough, and their heads are light, strong, and durable. Their mesh products are top level, and the factory custom pockets they string are second to none. Once you go Powell you may never go back to anything else, and I can’t wait to see what else they drop on the lacrosse world this year, and in the future.

The Top 50 Men’s Lacrosse Heads of All Time: 40-31 — Position Specific
Welcome to what is the largest undertaking in the history of IL Gear. We have compiled a list of the top 50 heads of all time. Note, that the list does not say “best” — that’s on purpose. Some of the heads that are on here are included because they played a developmental role in the evolution of the plastic lacrosse head. Some heads are all time classics and some heads are a little too new for the selective tastes of those that attended the old school. We took into account history, design, impact and sales as well as our own personal spin on each and every head included. We did exclude a number of newly released heads on purpose as their historical impact is yet to be measured and evaluated for posterity. Multiple members of the lacrosse community have been consulted on the ranks and heads here, but the final say eventually fell to me, IL’s Gear and Lifestyle editor. I hope you enjoy this list and please share your thoughts with us in the comments and on social media. Unless you hate it. In which case, like, take a deep breath and count to ten. I dare you to make a better one.
For this section we decided to focus on position specific offerings for face-off men, goalies and defensemen. Think of this more like a top ten of that category because it is a mixture of important design elements, debut technology and overal ideology that has impacted the game on the other side of the ball. — Kyle Devitte
40. Warrior Regulator Max
This is one of those defensive products that attackmen flat out despise. The Regulator Max won’t just ruin an attackman’s day; it will ruin their week, maybe even their month. Legend has it; the only way to cut a Regulator Max is with another Regulator Max. This head will make any critic reevaluate their definition of a stiff head. Warrior received positive feedback from the Regulator X’s solid sidewall construction and generous face shape. So, why not just use the same mold to make an indestructible product? Designing defensive heads is never a glorious process, so you might as well design a product that will last a decade. (Tommy Lyons)

39. StringKing Mark 2T
The definition of a “Sko Guy” is a player that brings the juice or the energy to a Program (shouts to Jacksonville Lacrosse – Willy Hendrick). The Mark 2T is the “Sko Guy” of all lacrosse heads. This is the head that you see grinding in between the lines, on face-off wings, and diving for end line balls. Defensive midfielders that bury the rock are using Mark 2T’s. The Mark 2T makes lacrosse fun again. The Mark 2T might be the Tuxedo T-shirt of lacrosse heads; showcasing the best of both worlds and enjoyed by everyone. (TL)
38. ECD Rebel D
East Coast Dyes realized that a great defensive head is simple. It has to be stiff and consistent with a wide scoop for GB accessibility. (One must always be concerned with picking nuggets.) The relatively narrow throat of the Rebel D allows for a strong foundation as well as excellent ball protection when creating offense. Mix those variables together with the trademark ECD personality and connection to their consumers and you get a profoundly effective product. (TL)

37. STX Duel
The Duel wasn’t the first face-off specific head, but it was the first crack at the genre from STX. Applying their vast research and development to any task usually churns out something interesting, and in the case of the Duel, it produced a head that was exactly what the market was looking for. That is not to say that the Duel was perfect, or even perfectly timed, but it showed the face-off community that STX was serious about developing products for them. Not only did STX put out the Duel, a year and change later they followed the initial release with two updates — one with an improved plastic and the other a completely updated version called (what else) the Duel II. Sometimes being the first company to jump on a movement is overrated; it’s often better to learn from all the mistakes and adapt the product as the demand increases, which is what STX did with the Duel and its sequels. (Kyle Devitte)
36. Maverik Tank
When the Tank hit the market, everyone was confused. What do you mean bottom rail is made for higher pockets but the face shape doesn’t have a high flare? What is happening? These two facets along with Maverik’s traditionally stiff plastic composition and high strength throat allowed the Tank to become one of the most consistent modern defense heads. Stringers were definitely not thrilled at first, but over time they managed to find pocket concepts that worked. The Tank balances best of both worlds for defenseman; it has a low flare face shape for an offensive LSM that is going to handle the ball, and a wide scoop that will last a brutish defenseman more than a few games worth of hammer down checks. (TL)
35. StringKing Mark 2F
The Mark 2F was made for the face-off guy that really hates being called a face-off guy. It’s for a player that wants to get to the cage and not have to worry about his head looking like a melted Spork. Nobody wants to feed the guy whose head looks like it’s been through two tours of an oven factory. The Mark 2F is yet another product that encompasses all the traits that the StringKing family represents. A tight and narrow scoop with SK trademark rounded edges making ground balls a seamless experience. Oh, and there are somewhere short of 200 stringing holes for every pocket placement and absurd face-off stringing method. So, everyone can get the pocket they want. (TL)
34. Warrior Nemesis
The Nemesis is a head that was born out of necessity. Warrior’s debut goalie head was the Big Nasty and it was aptly named. With large plastic wings that cascaded well beyond their usefulness down the sidewalls to the throat, the Big Nasty was a full on misfire design wise. However, were it not for that miscue, the Nemesis would never come to be. Warrior steered out of the skid and applied a new approach to creating a goalie head. In short, what would happen if you took a regular high-performance lacrosse head and applied all of the concepts from that head to goalie dimensions? The Nemesis is a perfect example of what happens when a company really takes design back to formulae and creates something by expanding on an idea that no one ever dared to try before. The longevity of the head aside, the Nemesis is still a solid option for keepers everywhere (if you can find one). (KD)
33. STX Eclipse 2
Arguably the greatest and most ambitious sequel to any lacrosse product, STX’s Eclipse 2 (or II if you prefer) is a triumph in all aspects. The original Eclipse is one of the most financially successful heads in the history of lacrosse. So, when STX announced that they were working on the next iteration, goalies across the fruited plains of [North] America began to buzz with anticipation. And then STX put out the Shield and everyone went “Huh?” Cut to 2017 when the real sequel to the best-selling goalie head of all time finally was released. The Eclipse 2 did the impossible: it not only fulfilled expectations, but it exceeded them. On a cursory glance the heads look remarkably similar in shape save for the throat, which was elongated and reinforced for better grip and strength. However, the key difference that everyone celebrated was the myriad of stringing holes that now lined the backside of the head. Goalie heads are, by law, not fun to string, but the Eclipse 2 was less of an unwelcome challenge than a relieving sigh of acceptance. It’s because of that that the Eclipse 2 is more like a restored classic than an unnecessary reboot and that’s why it’s on this list despite being on the market for such a short time. (KD)
32. Brine Edge Plus
Call it foreshadowing, call it an OG Edge with a bunch of unnecessary plastic slammed into the sidewall, call it whatever you want, but riddle me this — what other head could a defender perform brutish and unscheduled rib surgery upon an otherwise healthy attackman? This head was a straight up weapon. You know how I know that? I used one on a wooden shaft for an entire season and two of my own teammates attacked me in practice for doing so. The Edge Plus is also the first head design to be altered only to be marketed to another position on the field. All due respect to all of the rest of the heads in this Position Specific section, but the Edge Plus is straight up bomb proof. You could dye it, pinch it, smash it on rocks, run over it with your car (which I did, after freezing it to try and get a warranty replacement, kids don’t try that at home; it only works 50% of the time) but the Edge Plus stared back at your feeble attempts with the dead eyes of a lost soul. Just like the last attackman that you bashed with it. (KD)
31. Warrior Blade
The Warrior Blade was designed to be an attackman’s stick. It came out in Warrior’s third wave of heads in the late 90’s to muted fanfare despite being marketed by the GOAT, Casey Powell and his GOAT BRO Ryan. The head didn’t really catch on with attackmen as much as, say, the original Evolution did, but it hung around in Warrior’s line long enough for some crazy FOGO to go “Hey, can I try that?” and the rest is history. There is some debate over which that draw man was, but for the sake of the story, let’s all agree that it was Paul Cantabene and be done with it. After all, he is the man that made the head famous in the pros and beyond. At one point, an original near-mint condition Blade was fetching well over 175 dollars on the secondary market because it was so coveted by the face-off community. What’s more, the Blade is the only lacrosse head to be re-released by a brand over a decade after being discontinued. It’s a historic piece of happenstance and serendipity all rolled into one piece of plastic and that’s why it is the greatest position-specific head in our ranks. (KD)
Best Defensive Lacrosse Heads – The BaseballStop
Training Equipment / thebaseballstop
When it comes to lacrosse, your defense skills matter. But there’s more to being an effective defenseman than great moves: Your equipment makes a difference. The best defensive lacrosse heads have a wider spot at the upper end of the throat, which makes it easier to handle ground balls and make great passes.
Considerations when Choosing the Best Defensive Lacrosse Heads
There are a few different factors to consider as you shop. The best defensive lacrosse heads are durable, with plenty of stability and lots of room for grabbing fast-flying balls. Here are some of the most important features to look for.
- Strength: It’s impossible to put up a good defense with a flimsy lacrosse head. If you want to keep your opponents at bay with effective checks, you must choose a strong, durable head that won’t break or crack under pressure.
- Customizability: Many of the best defensive lacrosse heads provide some different stringing options so you can put your pocket where it’ll be most effective. Mid to high placement is ideal since it allows for better hold and good, strong shots.
- Tight Connection to the Stick: Look for a lacrosse head that won’t wobble on your stick. Rattling of any kind is going to decrease your performance! We like the way Warrior has addressed this issue with its Loc-Throat technology. Other companies offer some good solutions, too.
- Wide Face Shape: While durability is definitely a primary concern, you’re going to want to look for a defensive lacrosse head with a nice, wide face shape. You’ll find that the wider profile helps you intercept passes far easier than a head with a narrower profile.
- Your Position: Do you play close D, or LSM? Close D players should look for extra stiffness as well as special features that make it easier to scoop up ground balls. Heads that offer the ability to create high pockets are ideal for playing close D, since you’re going to need plenty of power and accuracy during passing maneuvers. If you play LSM, look for a head that lets you create a deeper pocket, as well as one that lets you throw solid checks. Most of the defensive lacrosse heads we’ve reviewed here are well-suited to both positions.
The sidewalls tend to be stiffer, with special cutouts and high-tech plastics that help keep the weight down while delivering enough strength for effective checks. With these key factors in mind, we’ve compiled this short list of the best defensive lacrosse heads available.

• Thomas followed that up with 53 yards rushing and 47 yards receiving Saturday in the win at Richmond. His most explosive play was a 43-yard screen pass that flipped the field.
• Thomas ranks sixth in Elon’s FCS history with 1,759 career rushing yards, needing 154 more to pass De’Sean McNair (2016-19) to break into the top five. He is also seventh in career carries with 374.
• Thomas also has a penchant for finding paydirt, posting ten career rushing touchdowns. He is tied for tenth in the school’s FCS history.
• In the win over Campbell, Thomas had a team-high 19 carries and added four receptions, just one shy of his career-high. Combined he had 93 yards on those 23 touches.

THE NO FLY ZONE
• Since moving into the starting lineup in week two, Shamari Wingard has been breaking up passes with regularity.
• Wingard has seven passes defended in the last four weeks, including an interception against William & Mary. He had three pass break-ups against Appalachian State.
• Wingard ranks 19th nationally and fourth in the CAA with 1.4 passes defended per contest this year.

YOU WANT OFFENSE? YOU GOT IT

• Elon averaged 6.9 yards per carry in that win a season ago (222 yards on 32 carries) and the squad has only won four times since 2018 when averaging less than 4.0 yards per rush.
• In total, Elon averaged 4.0 yards per carry or better in 11 of the team’s last 15 wins.
• Junior wide receiver Jackson Parham is having a break-out season, leading Elon in receiving and ranking in the top 30 in the country in receiving yards per game and receptions per game. He ranks in the top three in CAA Football in both as well.
• Parham had 147 yards receiving in 2019 and improved to 197 in six games during the spring campaign. But he has 414 yards receiving in just five games in 2021.
• Parham has had at least three catches and 57 yards receiving in each game this year. He had a career-best 10 receptions and 106 yards against William & Mary in the CAA opener.
NO WEEKS OFF

• The Phoenix is one of just four FCS teams to have generated at least two turnovers in every game this year. The other three — Missouri State, Chattanooga, and Montana — have only played four games.
• In 2019, Crocker’s defense forced 21 turnovers and Elon was a CAA best +9 during the regular season.
• In 2020 (spring 2021), the defense again caused havoc, ranking in the top 10 nationally in fumbles recovered (7) and top 30 in total turnovers forced (11).
• Since Crocker began at Elon (the 2019-21 seasons together), the Phoenix lead CAA Football in turnover margin (+17, ahead of both James Madison and Delaware at +15) and are second in turnovers forced (44, behind only James Madison at 47).
• Tre’Von Jones has two fumble recoveries on the season and is one of 13 players nationwide to have done that. Omar Rogers and Jones have a team-high two interceptions as well, while Marcus Hillman and Cole Coleman each have two forced fumbles.

• In 2021, Davis is a perfect 8-for-8 on extra points and is 82-of-83 during his career.
• With 208 career points scored, Davis ranks sixth in Elon’s FCS history in scoring.
YURK FILLING BIG SHOES
• True freshman Jeff Yurk is replacing one of the top punters in program history in Hunter Stephenson. Stephenson ranked second in program history with a 40.9 career punting average.

Saturday, Richmond ran 15 more plays than Elon but the Phoenix still had the time of possession edge with 30:14.
• Elon held the time of possession advantage just one time in the abbreviated six-game spring campaign.
• The last time Elon held the ball for more than the 32:53 it did against App State came when the team had 36:11 in TOP against William & Mary on Nov. 2, 2019.
TO BE THE BEST, YOU’VE GOT TO BEAT THE BEST
• Elon’s schedule is littered with teams recognized in the Stats Perform top 25 poll.

Lacrosse Player Positions Lacrosse Rules Lacrosse Strategy Lacrosse Glossary
Lacrosse is a team sport in which players try to hit the net or goal with a rubber ball.Players use a long club with a net at the end called a lacrosse club. They can run, carry, catch, shoot and pass the ball with the net of the club. The lacrosse team with the most points or goals at the end of the time period wins the game.
Lacrosse is a very sporty and active game. This ensures good physical activity and competitiveness. There is a lot of running in lacrosse, and speed and stamina are great benefits for the lacrosse player. The nickname for this sport is “The Fastest Game on Two Legs.”Lacrosse has become popular in high schools, colleges and has achieved some success as a professional sport.
First of all, lacrosse players must wear protective equipment. This includes a helmet, mouthguard, lacrosse gloves and pads. Pads can include ribs, shoulder pads, and elbow pads. Lacrosse goalkeepers must wear additional and special protective equipment.
Another basic piece of equipment for a lacrosse player is the stick or cross. Attackers usually use a short cross (40 to 42 inches long).Defenders use a long cross (up to 72 inches in length). The head of the lacrosse club has a net for holding the ball with a flange at the end that allows you to throw or shoot the ball by swinging the club. Goalkeepers may use a lacrosse stick with a wider head.
The lacrosse field today is 110 yards long and 60 yards wide. A gate 6 feet high and 6 feet wide is 15 yards from the edge of the field. The field is divided into a defense zone (where your target is), an attack zone (where your opponent’s goal is) and a wing zone (in the middle).

The origins of lacrosse stem from a game played by Native Americans. It is one of the oldest team sports in the world.
In the original game, lacrosse was often played with hundreds of players on the field. The games were played between different villages or tribes. The rules changed, as did the playing field. Sometimes the targets were far apart. Sometimes the game was used to resolve disputes and could last for several days.
The name “Lacrosse” comes from a French missionary to America named Jean de Breeuf. He talked about a stick game played by Native Americans. Lacrosse soon became popular with many European settlers, who learned the game from the locals. Later, a Canadian named William George Bierce founded the lacrosse club and began to draw up some of the rules that are used today.
Lacrosse became popular in high schools and universities in the early 1900s.It is still a popular sport in college and high school today, especially in the New England area of the United States. In 2001, the Major League Lacrosse, or MLL, played its first full season of play. MLL currently has 10 teams.
