Maverik Apollo Handle Review

The Apollo Handle is the latest lacrosse handle to hit the market from Maverik Lacrosse.  The main features of the Apollo are the Dynamic wall taper as well as the speed shape.  What the Dynamic wall taper does for the handle is it makes it stronger at the top half of the handle and lighter at the bottom half.  They created the handle this way so it is stronger where it takes the most abuse and lighter where you want better feel. The Apollo is a scandium titanium blend which is great.  That blend helps give it strength and lightness.  It also features the speed shape which is similar to the A1 handle.  The speed shape gives you great feel and placement of your fingers on the handle.  The Apollo also features the ABE, ABE is an adjustable butt end.  The ABE in my opinion is the next big thing in lacrosse handles.

We were lucky enough to test out a red Apollo handle from Maverik.  I used the handle while working a lacrosse camp in August and it was great.  The Apollo is very light but responsive.  The speed shape gives it a good feel and helps with placement of your hands on the handle.  They Dynamic wall taper is very cool, giving you strength where you need it and lightness where it is needed.  Overall a very solid handle from Maverik Lacrosse.  We definitely recommend the Apollo.
