Maverik Lacrosse recently released a new lacrosse head built for the attackman and midfielder. The lacrosse head is called the Optik. This is another Maverik lacrosse head that was made in the USA. The design of the Optik is made to give the offensive player precision and accuracy without sacrificing power and strength. It is a very light lacrosse head, only weighing 4.5 ounces. Even though it is light, it is still very strong. The strength comes from the new 2-strut design that Maverik used when creating the Optik. It also has a dual design scoop and 17 stringing holes. Those 17 stringing holes come in handy when stringing the Optik up anyway you like. It also features a Level 2 Bottom Rail, which helps with creating a low or mid pocket.
We were lucky enough to test both a universal and NFHS Optik lacrosse head. Both lacrosse heads have good catching areas; then the face of the lacrosse head begins to narrow as you get towards the throat of the Optik. The Optik has a short plastic area under the throat of the lacrosse head, which I like. It helps in cradling and helps give a better feel while one-hand cradling. The lacrosse head is offset and the inside of the sidewalls are hollowed out. This is where the Optik gets its strength and lightness. The Optik has almost a matte coating on it. Overall, this is a great lacrosse head and probably one of the best heads Maverik has produced to-date. We highly recommend the Maverik Optik lacrosse head.
