Powell Lacrosse Pioneer Head Review

Our final review of Powell Lacrosse gear will be the Pioneer lacrosse head.  This is the first lacrosse head produced by Powell Lacrosse.  The lacrosse head is a throwback to the early days of the offset head.  It features an extreme offset which reminds me of the early Brine Edge.  While the offset reminds me of the good old days, the rest of the Pioneer are rooted in 2016.  It has a scalloped scoop which helps in scooping up ground balls.  The scalloped scoop also allows the Pioneer to maintain its stiffness and visual appeal.  Meaning the lacrosse head shouldn’t get warped or misshapen.  The stiffness in the Pioneer lacrosse head can be attributed back to the lightweight high grade plastic used in the construction of the lacrosse head.  It also features a stiff throat which gives the Pioneer its strong lateral stiffness which allows the lacrosse head to maintain its consistency.  Maintaining consistency with lacrosse heads is key.  The lacrosse head should be able to perform the same as it did the day you opened it out of the box.  The stiffness in the Pioneer should allow the lacrosse head to be able to do that.  The Pioneer also features multiple sidewall holes which allows you to string any type of pocket imaginable.  This is common with all new heads on the market and is great for stringers.  The lacrosse head also features the Powell logo on the lacrosse head in multiple spots.  It is prominently displayed on the front throat of the Pioneer, as well as in the middle of the scoop.  The sidewall design reminds me of the Brine Voyce.  It features three lines leaving the throat the of the lacrosse head and heading towards the front of the Pioneer.  Overall it is a great lacrosse head.  The stiffness is great and the shape of the Pioneer is great as well.  It is a lacrosse head that could be used by both midfielders and attackman.  We highly recommend the Powell Lacrosse Pioneer lacrosse head if you are looking for a great lacrosse head for the 2016 season.
