Tuned Top String for Hold and Accuracy
A lacrosse player is only as good as their stick, and having the right stringing is crucial for maximizing performance. This is where Maverik’s Havok 2.0 stringing really shines. Its innovatively tuned top string gives you unmatched control and accuracy on your shots, feeds, and scooping.
The Havok 2.0 utilizes a proprietary top string pattern that is specifically engineered to give you a soft pocket with an ideal hold. This gives you the consistency needed to place shots exactly where you want them. The tuned top string acts like a cradle for the ball, allowing for pinpoint passing to hit your teammates perfectly in stride. You’ll notice the difference right away with how dialed in your feeds are, even when throwing on the run or in awkward positions.
Some top string designs are too rigid and don’t allow the pocket to settle into a natural sweet spot. Others are too loose, causing the ball to rattle around. The beauty of the Havok 2.0 is it strikes the perfect balance between hold and release. The ball sits snugly in the pocket, but with the lightest touch it releases cleanly. This gives you lightning quick release speed critical for beating defenders or winning draws.
The magic of the Havok 2.0 is in the details. Maverik meticulously tested dozens of stringing patterns before arriving at one that optimizes ball control.

Consistency is the name of the game, and Havok 2.0 delivers it through engineered excellence.
Durable Mesh Pockets for Quick Ground Balls
In the fast-paced game of lacrosse, ground balls are one of the biggest momentum-shifters. The team that dominates ground balls usually controls possession, which leads to more scoring opportunities. This makes a head’s ability to scoop up ground balls quickly absolutely vital. Maverik’s Havok 2.0 head is designed specifically to gain this all-important advantage.
The head’s mesh pockets are constructed out of ultra-durable materials engineered to stand up to even the roughest play. Maverik uses a high-quality polyester blend that maintains its structure over time. It won’t bag out or deform like cheaper mesh can. This keeps the pocket crisp for accurately channeling ground balls into the head’s sweet spot.
Equally important is the head and mesh’s stiffness. You need a certain amount of rigidity to create a ramp right to the pocket. But too much stiffness reduces control. The Havok 2.0 finds the perfect sweet spot between stiffness and flex. This gives you the immediate ground ball response you need to beat out defenders.
The head’s wider flare and angled scoop work hand-in-hand with the stiffer mesh. As you get over a ground ball, the flare guides it smoothly into the pocket. The angled scoop digs under the ball for quick collection without needing to roll the head excessively. Thanks to the pocket’s durable mesh, even low bouncing grounders are no problem.
Quickly gaining possession off ground balls requires the right bounce, channeling, and scooping mechanics. While skill is crucial, the head does matter. Maverik optimized every aspect of the Havok 2.0, from materials to structural design, to gain an edge in ground ball battles. The durability, ramp, and scoopability translate directly into more possessions and a dominant presence around the middle of the field.
Minimal Whip for Precision Passing
Pinpoint passing is a must for executing clean offense and working the ball around effectively. A head’s whip properties play a big role in passing accuracy. Too much whip leads to unpredictability, while not enough reduces ball speed. With its strategically engineered minimal whip, the Maverik Havok 2.0 gives you the exact amount of flex needed for precise feeds.
Most heads today over-emphasize whip by using thin rails and excessive offset. This overflexing might look cool, but it makes passing the ball with consistency very difficult. Even slight differences in your throwing motion will cause dramatic variations in how the head flexes and releases. Passing lanes that worked one time may sail high or wide the next.
Maverik took a different approach with the Havok 2.0 by optimizing the sidewall design and materials to create minimal, controlled whip. The thicker, strategically reinforced rails keep the head stable, but with just enough give to add some lively spring-back as you pass. This consistent, predictable flex translates directly into accurate feeds that hit your teammate’s stick on point, every time.
You’ll immediately notice how dialed in your full-field clearing passes are with the Havik 2.0, even when you have to sling it on the move. Breaking the ball out of traffic requires split-second decision making, and you can trust the head will send crisp, fast passes right to your teammate’s sweet spot. The minimal whip also helps on quick one-touch passes around the crease and inside feeds from X.
Precise passing requires mastery of mechanics and feel. But having a head like the Havok 2.0 supporting your technique with minimal, controlled whip is the perfect formula for executing clean offense. Your teammates will become even bigger threats when you connect consistently.
Aggressive Pinch and Hold for Great Cradling
Having a pocket that perfectly locks in the ball during play is crucial for maintaining possession and making decisive moves. Maverik optimized the Havok 2.0’s stringing to give you an aggressive pinch and hold so you can cradle with confidence.
The pinched midpoint channels the ball to settle deep into the pocket’s core. This positions it for maximum hold during play. Maverik utilizes a proprietary interlock woven shooting string to enhance the pinch. It conforms tightly to the ball, almost suctioning it in place. This interlock is also thicker and stiffer than traditional shooting strings, further improving hold.
Equally important is optimizing tension on the channel and sidewall strings. Too much and the pocket becomes rigid and unnatural. Too little and the ball will easily slip out. The Havok 2.0 finds the ideal middle ground to keep the ball locked in with an aggressive hold, but with enough finesse to make cradling and quick stick moves fluid.
You’ll immediately feel the ball lock tightly into the pocket as you start cradling up the field. Even when you have to absorb checks, cut on a dime, or bull dodge defenders, it stays locked down. The confidence this aggressive pinch and hold inspires is game-changing. You can drive to the cage hard and power through checks without ever worrying about losing possession.
Having a head engineered to cradle well is a huge competitive advantage. Maverik optimized the Havok 2.0’s pocket design, stringing, and sidewall structure to pin the ball exactly where you need it. The result is next-level cradling ability that lets you play boldly without reservations.
Hybrid Pocket for Speed and Hold
Finding the right balance between ball speed and hold is one of the biggest challenges in stringing a good pocket. A shallow pocket creates quick release, but sacrifices control and security. A deeper pocket holds well but slows down your shot and pass release. With its cleverly engineered hybrid pocket design, the Maverik Havok 2.0 gives you the best of both worlds for lightning quick shots and feeds.
The Havok 2.0 utilizes a gradual pocket with a hybrid ramp-hold shape. The upper nylon strings form a centralized channel that ramps the ball quickly into the lower pocket. Here, Maverik’s thicker woven shooting strings pinch the ball tightly for hold and control.
This hybrid setup acts like a slingshot, capturing the ball deep in the pocket but also compressing energy as you wind up. When you unload your shot, the pocket decompresses propelling the ball out at high speeds. The channel ramp ensures the ball jumps immediately off the strings without getting bogged down.
You’ll notice the difference in release speed and hold immediately during shooting drills. Even from 12+ yards out, you can wind up and the ball springs off the Havok 2.0 pocket like a cannon. The hybrid pocket generates both whip-like ball speed and the consistent accuracy of a deeper hold.
The mechanics of pocket design, ramp angle, and string materials all factor into optimizing release and hold. The Havok 2.0 hybrid pocket demonstrates Maverik’s engineering acumen, providing the best compromise between these competing needs. The quickness it adds to your game-breaking outside shot or feed can be a true difference-maker.
