Red Oak Lacrosse Shaft
Our red oak shafts are for those that appreciate a lighter weight woodie with a beautiful wood grain. A 30″ attack shaft weighs approximately 280 grams or 8.8 ounces.
The oaks have been key in America’s industrial transformation: railroad ties, wheels, plows, looms, barrels, and of course, furniture and floors. The oak is the state tree of New Jersey. The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish reddish brown. The wood is mostly straight-grained, with a coarse texture. The wood is hard with medium bending strength, stiffness, high crushing strength and great wear-resistance.
