The Nike Lakota U lacrosse head is the best value in the elite class for midfielders. The Nike Lakota U allows for a nice pocket in the middle of the lacrosse head for a quick release and optimum ball control on the run for advancing offensive lacrosse players. The short round throat allows you to get your hand very high on the lacrosse shaft adding to the ball control. This is a big favorite for advancing youth players as well for the simple fact that the stringhold setup naturally places the pocket in the middle of the head. Not too much hold or whip for younger players to get in trouble with. This equates to better passing consistency and more shots on cage while on the run.
