Middies are the one in the game who need to run a lot because they are the one in the game who needs to create a goal-scoring opportunity and also prevents the opponent from scoring the goal too.
That’s why a team with better midfielders wins the matches more than the team with the best attackers or defenders.
And most of the gear manufacturers have forgotten about midfielders and don’t make any special gears for them.
But STX won’t do like that because they actually created a series called Stallion made out especially for midfielders and stallion series heads has been one of the top-selling among midfielders.
And the thing you won’t be a great midfielder on the mat only by having the best heads, having the right shaft is also as important as having the best head.
Because having the best head and not having the best shaft won’t make you the best midfielder, and the that’s why we have decided to review the stallion series shafts which were created specifically keeping midfielders in mind.
STX Stallion Series Shaft Review
So now currently in STX Stallion, three shafts are in the trend and we have decided to test out those shafts and gave you some expert review about those products.
The top-selling stallion shafts we have decided to review are Stallion SC-Ti OCS, Stallion 7000, Stallion 6000.
Stallion SC-Ti OCS Shaft
So let’s first get started with Stallion SC-Ti OCS shaft which is the latest version among the Stallion Series.
The Stallion Sc-Ti OCS handle will stand up to the rugged play of the elite midfielder on both ends of the field.
STX has implemented OCS technology in this shaft which means optimized cross-section and what it really does is that it adds material in all the corners of the shaft, so this is going dramatically decrease denting without adding weight.
Shaft lock technology
So by using this technology the shaft will have a more secure connection between head and handle reducing head rattle.
In order to provide the best grip ever this shaft has been made with Steep basic graphic with a mild sandblast finish.
High Strength to Weight Ratio
With a high strength to weight ratio, this shaft is 5% lighter than Stallion Sc-Ti models and this has been achieved by maintaining strength with OCS technology.
In addition, the shaft is coming in multi-colour variants like Black, grey, dark grey, royal, red.
With all these amazing features this shaft is available at a price tag of 100$ which is very much a reasonable price for an elite shaft.
