What is a good lacrosse shaft for a better price?

If you're a girl you can get a STX crankshaft for maybe $60. For guys, you can get any legit crankshaft from $80-100. Or you can just go ahead and get a whole crank stick from $90-125. And I think guys sticks can go anywhere from $125 to $200. I use the crankshaft STX Rave. EDIT: Crankshafts are overpriced and overrated. If you get a crankshaft, you can only use crankshaft heads and shafts of which there are few. My tip is to buy used. As long as a shaft has no dents and a head isn't warped, you can buy it. Try buying from teammates who are graduating or no longer play lacrosse. You can usually buy their stick off of them. If not, go to a used sports goods store. You can buy good quality gear at usually ~30% off.

The end of the shaft is bent back 10degrees so you have to buy a crankshaft head which would be leaning forward on a regular straight shaft. You can feel the ball better when its in your head and have a quicker release. I have a K18 crankshaft and it is the favorite stick ive ever owned or used.
