Shape, Material, & Scoop

The Stallion 1k is designed for two-way midfield personnel, like Nakeie Montgomery who uses this head. It is VERY similar to the Stallion 900, but it is slightly different. The face shape and stiffness is ideal for the two-way middie. This head has the deepest offset that is allowed for more control over the ball.

Weighing in at 4.7 oz, the Stallion 1k is lighter for a two-way middie head compared to the ECD DNA 2.0 and StringKing Mark 2T and 2V. As a two-way middie myself, I personally like my heads to be a little heavier because typically, I get more durability when checking, but did not have any of those issues with this head so far because of the EnduraForm plastic.

The Speed Scoop is fairly decent but could definitely use some work. It didn’t work at higher angles as well as some other heads, mainly the StringKing Mark series. But it still does very well at most other angles.

Stringing

With the head designed to be versatile, pocket customization is really important as different positions like different pocket shapes. Unfortunately, the Stallion 1k does lack the number of stringing holes that other elite heads have. There are 6 top string holes, 16 sidewall holes per side, and 4 bottom string holes. Most elite heads these days have upwards of 20 sidewall stringing holes.

All of the holes are fairly large so you shouldn’t have any issue getting a string through, however, this can potentially affect the pocket because the string has a lot of wiggle room in each hole. That being said, I had little trouble getting the pocket I wanted. Could it have more stringing holes? Definitely. But you should be able to string just about any pocket in this head.

Pros & Cons of the STX Stallion 1k

Cons

Who is the STX Stallion 1k Best for?

This head is best for the two-way midfielder, defensive midfielder, or offensive minded LSM. The scoop is not the best scoop I’ve used, but it will get the job done.

Offensive players can use this head if they are looking for a stiffer option but still want a lighter head. This could be a good option for an attackman that likes a mid pocket, but other heads would be better for a low pocket.

As a two-way middie myself, I would definitely use this head on the field paired with the Sc-Ti X+ shaft.

Nathan Branson

Nathan, Nate, or Branson (as he was known to his teammates) played Division 3 lacrosse at Messiah University as a starting midfielder for all three years where he played in both offensive and defensive capacities. He will be heading to Drexel in the fall of 2023 as a graduate student in physics with the potential to play one more year there. In his youth career, he played every position for at least a season (other than goalie) so he has a great understanding of every position and the game as a whole. He has suffered some injuries throughout his career, from broken collarbone to torn ACL. He has a large interest in sports analytics and is excited for more analytics to be introduced to lacrosse.
