Ipê Lacrosse Shafts
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND. HIKSTIK builds custom, hardwood lacrosse shafts in a variety of wood types. Hickory is used to create our most popular lax handles, but we also use White Ash, Red Oak, Purpleheart, Bamboo and Ipê hardwoods. HIKSTIK uses these wood types for their excellent strength-to-weight ratios and their performance as high-end, yet affordable wood lacrosse shafts.
|Ipê ("Ee - pay") wood is known by many names: Ipê Brazil, Greenheart, Madera negra, Tahuari, Lapacho negro. It has a number of trade names: Ironwood & Brazilian Walnut; these are commercial names given to Ipê lumber by large Brazilian exporters. Ipê heartwood, is typically reddish brown, sometimes with a greenish tinge, often with lighter or darker striping, similar to a teak wood. Ipê is extremely strong - perfect for a face-off specialist, and is somewhat heavy compared to our other shafts: 350 grams or 12.5 ounces for a 30 inch attack shaft.|
*HIKSTIK.COM, LLC defines strength-to-weight ratio as the modulus of rupture (lbf/in2) divided by average specific gravity of the wood sample. Hardness (lbf) is the resistance to indentation. ** The weights of our shafts can vary up to ±28 grams or ±1.0 ounce due to the moisture content of the wood at the time of manufacture. For flexibility values and impact strength take a look at our comparative test results.
