Sturdy Yet Lightweight Tank 2.0 Head Provides Ultimate Control
The Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head really lives up to its name with an incredibly durable and rigid tank-like head design. Constructed from Maverik’s proprietary Composite Pro technology, the Tank 2.0 head delivers an impressive combination of sturdiness, stiffness, and lightweight maneuverability.
Weighing in at only 5 ounces, the Tank 2.0 is one of the lightest heads on the market. This reduced mass helps prevent fatigue during grueling practices and games, allowing players to maintain their optimal agility, quickness, and stamina from start to finish. The lightweight feel also makes it easier to whip quick sticks passes and deliver blistering shots on cage.
At the same time, Maverik didn’t sacrifice any structural integrity to achieve the feather-like weight. The head maintains a rock solid rigidness thanks to the premium composite materials. This stiffness gives players ultimate control and responsiveness for cradling, scooping, passing, catching, and shooting in any situation. The head won’t flex or warp even when repeatedly hammering the ball at top speeds.
The incredibly stiff yet agile head shape starts with Maverik’s true tank-style wide elliptical design. This provides a broad sweet spot and enough width for superior ball retention. The flared sidewalls add to the overall surface area while creating a rigid framework.
The standardized scoop and rail shapes allow for quick and clean ground ball pickups. At the throat, the Tank 2.0 utilizes a narrowed rounded channel that smoothly guides shots into the optimized launch pocket. Overall, the Tank 2.0 gives players of all positions and abilities the confidence that the ball will go exactly where they want it.
Rigid Tank Head Provides Superior Control and Accuracy
The head shape is one of the most critical factors in lacrosse stick performance, affecting key attributes like ball control, passing, shooting, scooping and more. This is an area where the Maverik Tank 2.0 truly excels, thanks to its stiff yet strategically engineered head shape.
At the core of the Tank 2.0 head is the brand’s proprietary Terminator technology. This creates an incredibly rigid frame with zero flex, even under the most intense impacts and checks. The Terminator tech utilizes premium composite materials to deliver professional-grade stiffness without extra weight. This gives players ultimate control and responsiveness when passing, catching, cradling, and shooting the ball.
The Tank 2.0 utilizes a moderate mid-high pocket placement. This gives a nice sweet spot in the middle of the head that helps ensure solid contact and control across all maneuvers. The pocket location also provides enough depth for secure cradle carries, whether dodging across the field or absorbed checks.
On top of the stiff head shape, the Tank 2.0 has an optimized scoop that allows for quick top-hand pickups. The scoop features a curved contour to easily guide ground balls right into the pocket, even when approached at extreme angles. The elongated taper helps lift balls off the turf. Together with the smooth side rails, ground ball collection is intuitive and effortless.
Maverik designed the Tank 2.0 sidewalls in a strategically flared profile that maximizes surface area control while maintaining structural soundness. The increased width enhances ball retention for confident carries. It also expands the effective hitting zone for more power and whip on passes and shots.
The throat and channel have a smoothed, rounded shape that enables crisp shooting. It provides even ball guidance directly into the pocket launch point, eliminating off-center deflections. With the Tank 2.0 head, players can fire absolute lasers on goal with pinpoint accuracy.
From ground ball pickups to quick sticks passes to blistering shots on goal, the Tank 2.0 allows complete command over the ball through a lethal combination of optimized shaping and sheer rigidity. It’s easy to see why this head is trusted by top NCAA and professional players alike.
Specialized Scoop for Quick Ground Balls
In the fast-paced game of lacrosse, ground balls are one of the most critical yet underappreciated skills. The ability to quickly scoop up loose balls gives teams extra possessions and scoring opportunities. This is an area where the Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head really excels thanks to its optimized scoop design.
The Tank 2.0 features a curved, contour-shaped scoop that is specifically engineered for quick top-hand ground ball pickups. The scoop has a smooth curvature and taper that helps guide and lift ground balls directly into the pocket, regardless of approach angle. Even low bouncing grounders are no match for the Tank 2.0’s excellent ball funneling capabilities.
The scoop is also positioned at an ideal angle that keeps the head low to the turf for optimal scooping efficiency. Players can swiftly rake and collect ground balls without needing to get their head underneath. This allows players to maintain better vision and awareness of surroundings while scooping.
Maverik constructed the Tank 2.0 scoop out of stiff composite materials that retain its shape over time. The rigidity prevents the scoop from warping or flexing upon impact with the ground. It maintains its optimized contouring and angle for consistent performance.
The scoop works in tandem with the smooth, rounded rail shape. The rails help guide loose balls laterally into the pocket once lifted by the scoop. The ball glides effortlessly along the entire length of the rails into the sweet spot.
In addition to the specialized structural shaping, the Tank 2.0 utilizes a nano-ceramic coating on the scoop and sidewalls. This helps reduce friction for better gathering of ground balls and overall ball control.
While subtle in appearance, the Tank 2.0’s scoop design attributes combine to create a huge competitive edge. The rapid fire ball collection allows players to gain extra possessions, retain offensive pressure, and capitalize on fast break opportunities.
Whether hastily scooping up a contested ground ball or picking up a settled ball off a restart, players can trust the Tank 2.0’s excellent ground ball performance. The specialized scoop shaping helps players cleanly corral balls off the turf and maintain offensive possessions.
Strategic Stringing Holes Enable Custom Setups
One of the key features that makes the Maverik Tank 2.0 such a versatile lacrosse head is the strategic placement of stringing holes. The head has an optimized pattern of holes that allows players to string up a customized pocket with their preferred amount of hold, release, and overall ball control.
The Tank 2.0 head contains Maverik’s Tri-Channel technology, which utilizes three rows of stringing holes down the entire length of the sidewalls. This enables players to string traditional pockets, channel pockets, straight shooters, and any other creative setup imaginable.
Having three hole options at each point down the sidewalls maximizes stringing flexibility. Players can string acute angle pockets for quick ball release, wide channels for superior control, or any hybrid setup in between. Holes toward the scoop facilitate tighter channel tops, while holes toward the throat allow looser ball exits.
The Tank 2.0 also contains a row of holes along the bottom rails in the throat area. This allows players to customize the launch point and fine tune ball trajectory. Upper nylon placement controls hold, while lower lace placement enables smooth release.
For optimal passing and shooting performance, a center lace can be threaded through the center rail holes. This helps provide consistent launch point accuracy shot after shot. The multiple bottom stringing options let players dial in the ideal pocket location and launch angle.
In the scoop area, two holes on each side allow players to string a mid-level shooter setup for increased ball control and hold. This helps retain possession while dodging through traffic. For a quicker release, the mid-shooters can be omitted.
With endless combinations across three rows of holes, three sidewall areas, and strategic bottom lace placements, the stringing possibilities are virtually endless with the Tank 2.0. Players can keep tweaking their pocket until finding their perfect custom setup.
The thoughtful hole placement grants players maximum creativity and control over their pocket’s performance attributes. Whether seeking a quick release channel, superior hold shooter, or balanced hybrid, the Tank 2.0 can be customized for it.
Generous Pockets for Easy Cradling and Retention
Once strung up, the Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head forms pockets with ample depth and generous ball retention capabilities. This provides players with secure control over the ball while cradling, dodging, and maneuvering up the field.
The flared sidewall design and widened head shape give the Tank 2.0 increased surface area over single rail heads. This extra real estate allows ball pockets to form deeper cradling channels without sacrificing ball control.
Players can utilize a variety of pocket styles with the Tank 2.0, all providing excellent hold. Stringing up a mid-pocket with a medium bag and pronounced mid-shot nylons yields great overall playability. The mid-pocket provides a centrally located sweet spot and balanced hold/release attributes.
For more hold-focused setups, players can string the Tank 2.0 with an exaggerated mid-high pocket. This channels the ball deep into the upper sidewall area for carrying stability when dodging through traffic. A high pocket with a defined channel and parachute nylons ensures the ball stays put until ready to unload.
The Tank 2.0’s generous pocketing enables adequate depth without sacrificing ball control. Due to the rigid head shape and engineered sidewalls, the ball stays securely cradled within the pocket walls when maneuvering at full tilt. Pinched holds and dropping incidentals are minimized.
Extra padding on shoots provides enhanced hold strength and damping qualities to absorb checks. This further enhances secure carries, even through stick collisions. The additional padding also dampens ball impact for better catching performance.
With its enlarged head design and customizable stringing options, the Tank 2.0 gives players free rein to create the ideal pocket style for their needs. The exaggerated depth provides cradling confidence, while the precision shape retains precision handling.
Ideal Head Shape and Flex for Faceoffs
In addition to excelling during live play, the Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head is also optimized for faceoff dominance. With its widened shape and strategically engineered flex points, the Tank 2.0 gives faceoff specialists ultimate control during draws.
The head width and flared sidewall design provide increased surface area coverage of the ball during faceoffs. This allows players to quickly smother and capture possession off the draw. The Terminator frame maintains necessary stiffness for clamping down on the ball.
While remaining rigid through the scoop, sidewalls, and high throat, the lower throat area of the Tank 2.0 has specialized flex points. This provides some flexibility to wrap around ball on kneels and clamps, optimizing ball control when tussling for possession.
The engineered flex pattern also adds some “give” when absorbing checks. The strategic flex dissipates impact, allowing the head to maintain its shape and pop right back into form. This ensures draw performance won’t degrade over time.
During battles, the Tank 2.0 maintains its structure to provide leverage advantage. The elite-level stiffness prevents opposing sticks from flexing the head. Along with maximizing ball control, this stiffness also transfers more energy into prying/lifting motions during stand up battles.
The customized pocket and versatile stringing options also let faceoff players fine tune hold strength. Shooters can be padded for increased clamping friction. A tight channel with exaggerated depth toward the scoop keeps the ball locked in during scrambles.
Between the wider shape for smothering possession, engineered flex for control, and stringing customization, the Tank 2.0 gives faceoff specialists everything needed to dominate the X. The head excels during initial draw battles, scrums, and transitions.
With such specialized faceoff attributes, it’s no wonder that top college and pro faceoff men prefer the Tank 2.0. The head provides every tactical advantage to control possession off the whistle.
Works Well with Both Soft Mesh and Hard Mesh
The Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head is versatile in terms of mesh compatability, providing excellent performance with both soft mesh and hard/waxed mesh pocket styles.
Many players love the soft, flexible feel of traditional soft lacrosse mesh. Soft mesh has more give, which some feel provides better ball control. It also bags out more, allowing for deeper pocket styles. The Tank 2.0’s enlarged head shape and sidewall design accommodate soft mesh pocketing exceptionally well.
With soft mesh, players can string up an exaggerated mid or mid-high pocket for superior cradle carries. The flexible mesh will bag out substantially, increasing hold strength without losing responsiveness. The soft mesh dampens ball impact for a “buttery” catch and release feel.
For those who prefer the crispness of hard mesh pockets, the Tank 2.0 also excels with this stiffer material. Hard mesh holds its shape better, creating consistent throwing channels and defined shooting strings.
The Tank 2.0 maintains its precision even with minimal mesh give. The rigid head and defined scoop/sidewall contours keep pocket placement consistent. Hard mesh eases stringing tight channel pockets across the entire head length. This enables pinpoint accuracy.
With hardened mesh, players can fine tune shooting string placement to customize launch angles. The additional stiffness results in very lively ball rebounds out of the pocket. The increased pace is perfect for blistering shots and quick release passes.
Whether looking to maximize hold or optimize ball speed, players can dial in their desired feel by pairing the Tank 2.0 with the ideal mesh. The head delivers excellent performance and customizable pocketing with both soft or hardened mesh styles.
Provides Great Balance of Hold and Release
One of the main reasons lacrosse players love the Maverik Tank 2.0 head is that it provides an ideal balance between ball hold and quick release. This versatile playability suits all positions and style preferences.
The Tank 2.0’s mid-profile pocket placement couples nicely with the enlarged head shape to offer both control and agility. Players can carry the ball securely when cradling but still unload crisp passes and shots with short wind-ups.
Stringing up a mid-pocket focuses ball control toward the center sidewall holes. This centers ball placement for excellent feel during carries and redistribution motions. The mid-area placement also keeps the ball clear of the throat and scoop for unimpeded release.
Shooting strings can be tuned to each player’s hold preferences. Tighter nylons increase friction grip, while open sidewall channels enable quicker throws. Single lap shooting strings optimize both hold power and throwing finesse.
By adjusting pocket depth and shooter setups, players can enhance either ball retention or release speed. For the best blend, a medium pocket with scattered one-wrap nylons diffuses hold strength evenly across the pocket.
The Tank 2.0’s scoop, rail, and throat design also promote smooth yet responsive play. The ball transfers effortlessly into the pocket off ground balls, while the rounded throat/channel enables fireable release points.
With its hold/release balance and customizable stringing, the Tank 2.0 provides players full control over the ball during play. It enables confident carries but quick reaction time to unload passes or dodge attacks when a sliver of space opens up.
Smooth Passing and Crisp Shooting Performance
The Maverik Tank 2.0 lacrosse head provides excellent passing and shooting performance thanks to its optimized design. The head enables players to make smooth, accurate feeds as well as fire blistering shots on cage.
The Tank 2.0 promotes great feel and control when passing the ball around the horn or through traffic. Its mid-profile pocket placement centers the ball for superb distribution. The enlarged head shape and channeled sidewalls provide ample retention when moving the stick for feeds.
The strategically contoured scoop and smooth, rounded rails keep passes rolling off the head with perfect trajectory. Passes are delivered flat and on-point every time thanks to the head’s precision engineering.
When winding up for shots, the Tank 2.0 really excels at translating energy into ball speed. The rigid carbon composite materials don’t flex or deform, enabling full power transfer into the ball. The head rocks back smoothly and springs forward unleashing absolute rockets.
The narrowed throat and centered channel guidance flings shots with pinpoint accuracy. There is no guesswork required thanks to the head’s excellent ball control properties. Shot placement is consistently on the money.
Additionally, the customized stringing options let players tweak their pocket for ideal shot performance. Low v-shooters promote immediate ball ejection while single-wrapped nylons provide hold through the release.
For the ultimate in passing and shooting precision, the Tank 2.0 has players covered. The head provides the tools needed to place the ball anywhere on the field or pick corners with blistering shot velocity.
Reduced Weight Helps Prevent Arm Fatigue
One of the key performance advantages of the Maverik Tank 2.0 is its extremely lightweight design. Weighing in at only 5 ounces, the advanced composite materials help reduce arm and shoulder fatigue.
Lacrosse games require constant maneuvering and position changes using the stick through four grueling quarters. The lighter weight of the Tank 2.0 minimizes the strain on players’ muscles and joints throughout the contest.
The reduced mass is most noticeable when ripping shots on cage. Heavier heads require more effort to accelerate the stick head through the wind-up motion. But with the Tank 2.0, shots unleash with noticeably less labor involved thanks to the featherweight construction.
Quick sticks passes also flow with less drag and resistance compared to traditional heavier heads. Players can deliver crisp touch passes using just their fingers and wrists rather than needing to engage the arms or shoulders.
Even when locked in battles trading checks, the Tank 2.0’s nimble maneuverability reduces the cumulative toll on players’ energy levels. Maintaining active sticks and throwing checks requires less exertion over four quarters.
Toward the ends of games when strength starts fading, the Tank 2.0’s lightweight properties help keep players performing at their peak. The head seems to flick passes and shots almost effortlessly even during intense fatigue.
By alleviating the strain on players’ muscles, the Tank 2.0 enhances both performance and longevity. Players stay fresher for clutch late game moments while minimizing injury risk.
Composite Materials Provide Strength and Durability
Maverik utilizes advanced composite materials and construction methods to make the Tank 2.0 incredibly stiff, yet extremely durable. The head retains its structure over time while providing professional grade performance.
The Tank 2.0 is constructed from a blend of carbon fiber, resin, and other proprietary composite materials using Maverik’s special injection molding process. The materials are precision engineered at the microscopic level to optimize strength and stiffness.
Carbon fiber consists of ultra thin strands woven together to create a rigid lattice structure. The uniform fiber network resists deformation far better than typical plastics. Resin soaks into the fiber, acting as a bonding agent when cured in the mold.
This creates a head with zero flex but incredibly high strength-to-weight ratios. The Tank 2.0 maintains stiffness game after game, season after season. It won’t chip, bend or warp like lesser quality heads on the market today.
The resin system also provides protection against weathering effects. The head retains its smooth finish and performance in all playing conditions from frigid cold to searing heat. It won’t become brittle or degraded after extensive use.
From a durability standpoint, the Tank 2.0 holds up excellently even when subjected to heavy abuse. The dense internal lattice structure resists fractures or permanent damage. Collisions and severe impacts just bounce right off thanks to the head’s impressive damage resistance.
Players never have to worry about the Tank 2.0 lacking the reliability and consistency needed to excel at the elite levels. The uncompromising strength provides confidence in every situation.
Sleek Visual Profile Intimidates Opponents
Beyond just high performance, the Tank 2.0 also provides players with an imposing, intimidating visual presence on the field. The sleek curved shape strikes fear into the competition.
The smooth contours and enlarged elliptical profile create a distinctive silhouette that opponents recognize instantly. The thick rounded throat and flared sidewalls give the head an almost menacing, weapon-like appearance.
When attackers drive toward goal wielding the Tank 2.0, defenders know they’re in for a battle against the most formidable head in lacrosse. They’ll need to bring full physicality to have any hope of stopping shots that explode out of the Tank’s firing lanes.
In transition play, racing down the field with the Tank 2.0 extended out front gives midfielders an aura of being unstoppable. The bold styling strikes worry into retreating defenders trying to impede the fast break.
Even when riding opponents on clears, the aggressive Tank 2.0 shape commands respect. It presents constant disruptive pressure that causes ball carriers to feel smothered. Goalies get rattled just seeing a Tank 2.0 hovering nearby ready to pounce for caused turnovers.
Beyond just performing and feeling great, players get a psychological edge every time they step on the field wielding the Maverik Tank 2.0. The lacrosse industry’s most intimidating head gives players the confidence to dominate.
