Ash Lacrosse Shaft
Ash lacrosse handles are extremely solid and very sturdy. A 30″ attack shaft weighs approximately 255 grams or 9.0 ounces.
Norse mythology refers to ash as “the mighty tree that supports the heavens” and “below earth its roots went down to hell.” Before man-made materials took over the market, ash was the preferred wood for making tennis racquets. The sapwood is light-colored to nearly white and the heartwood varies from grayish or light brown, to pale yellow streaked with brown. The wood is generally straight-grained with a coarse uniform texture. Ash has very good overall strength properties relative to its weight and has excellent shock resistance.
