Manufacturer Styles[edit]

Shouldn't the article say about how many different companys make different styles of sticks like the heads may have a different design or the shaft might be a square or a hexagon .--Racer38 21:09, 28 June 2006 (UTC)


Some words about the history are missing. (like how old sticks looked like) and when the first plastic stick came up.

Does anyone have anything about the transition from All wood sticks up until present day sticks?Darthjarek 07:27, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

'sometimes called a crosse'? how about 'properly called a crosse'?Toyokuni3 (talk) 15:23, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

'sometimes called a crosse'? Is this a Canadian/Quebecois term or a recent slang term? No one around Syracuse (one of the original strongholds of the sport) or the local Onondaga Reservation called it a "crosse" in the 70's or 80's. Agreed on wood to metal/plastic transition. This probably allowed the game to become widespread and should be more robustly discussed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:58, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Article Sounds Like It Was Written By Stick Manufacturers[edit]

"Every lacrosse stick consists of two parts, a head and a handle. They are often purchased separately. Lacrosse heads and handles are manufactured by companies, including Warrior Lacrosse, Brine, Corp., STX, Harrow Sports, Gait/Debeer Lacrosse, and Onyx Lacrosse (formerly Shamrock Lacrosse)."

Often purchased seperately? Why would somebody write that except to sell gear with a greater mark-up. If there are no objections I am going to remove this reference and the list of commercial manufacturers. (talk) 20:08, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
