The Nike Alpha U head is the first Nike head with the defensive player in mind! It has a very wide scoop making ground balls simple and easy! The wideness also assists in picking off passes.
This head provides maximum stringing holes so you can string it up any way you like. It is designed for high pocket placement but can undoubtedly be strung multiple ways.
The Nike Alpha U comes with Nike’s signature sidewall brace. Although it may look odd to the average lacrosse player, this design is used to reduce weight while keeping the strength and durability you need! The head weighs in at 5.2 oz unstrung. This is a solid strength to weight ratio for any defender!
