I have used the Shield ever since college and love it. Not disappointed at all, it is stiff enough to not flex with harder shots and is easy stringing.
My son’s favorite head so when I found this great price I had to get a couple.
Very Very good head. Only compliant is in the hot weather it gets really really flexible. This head is extremely good, but it will not last more than 2-3 season.
The added strenght gives the goalie better save control and allows for longer clears. A step up from the Eclipse although some still prefer it over the Shield. STX has the best goalie heads for now but it is all about the player''s preference.Colors are great to match team uniforms.
