Face Off & Stay On - The ECD Weapon X Head

In the world of lacrosse there has always been the term Face Off & Get Off or more simply "FOGO" - Used to describe the elite midfielders who battle it out at the X during face-offs to win possession for their team. This highly skilled craft has developed into a sub-culture of the lacrosse community over the years and with it a common misunderstanding from the outside world. To say these players can only "Face Off & Get Off" would be a huge mistake - These elite athletes are much more then "FOGO's". But maybe there is another limiting factor forcing these players to return to the sideline after dominating a punishing face off. As this niche skill set has developed over the years so has the product offering with face off specific heads - While there are several great options currently available, players have struggled to find a head with the perfect flex for face offs and the durability to stay on the field. Many face off heads are replaced several times a season because of the extreme warping that comes from facing off. Along with warping - Most face off heads are specifically designed for facing off and lack many of the performance features found in standard midfield heads.

In fact - See what Greg "Beast" Gurenlian (World Champion, 6x All Pro, 5x All-Star, 3x FO Man of the year, 2015 MLL League MVP & leader of the FOArmy) looks for in his dream face off head.
