For the 2017 season, Warrior Sports has combined two of their best-selling Revolution and Evolution lines and has introduced the Warrior Regulator Max X Unstrung Lacrosse Head. The Regulator Max X is engineered for maximum power and stability. The MAX technology is designed to reinforce areas to dramatically increase durability and stiffness. The Regulator Max X also has SYM-RAIL technology that reduces the weight and adds stability by shaving the inner sidewalls to match the outer sidewalls.
The difference between the Warrior Regulator Max X and the Warrior Regulator X is within the thickness of the sidewalls as the Regulator Max X is designed to deal out some serious punishment to the opposing player.
What makes the Regulator Max X so special is its new LOC-THROAT technology that eliminates shaft rattle and adds stability. As the head is screwed onto the shaft the LOC –THROAT flares out to provide both internal and external pressure for a secured fit. This head is not compatible with certain shafts that are solid by the screw holes. Check before buying.
Warrior Regulator Max X has a mid-high bottom rail configuration which will provide a mid-to-high pocket with plenty of whip for high velocity shots. Utilizing the patent pending Tilt-Tech string hole design, this will give stringers many options to get the right tension for improved ball release.
If you are a defensive-minded, hard checking defenseman or midfielder, the Warrior Regulator Max X Strung Lacrosse Head is for you.
Cons: Poor Craftsmanship, Heavy, Poor Durability
I bought this head with very high hopes. I had just snapped my warrior regulator X after a year of very competitive play on both the high school and club/recruiting circuit. Hoped this head was going to be just like the regulator but better, as the name entails. I was wrong. This head is stiff, yes, stiffer than the older regulator. Unfortunately the face shape is much wider, and you can feel that whenever you cradled the ball no matter what pocket you put in it. It was impossible to get anything better than an okay mid pocket in this thing with an okay channel. The new slanted holes on here are something I will steer away from for a very long time, I was not a fan. They were meant to pull the pocket higher, and all they seemed to really do was make sure the string would fray faster, and if you messed your pattern up once to punish you for doing so, as you couldn't take the string out without much difficulty. Mine snapped at the throat after about four months of play. It is also extremely heavy, especially if you use a heavier shaft. It may be the stiffest head you will ever see, but I feel it is brittle in some places, like the throat. I do really like the shaft lock and the top string holes, as well as the stiffness, but other than that there isn't many positive things I can see coming from this head.
This Head is amazing. It is by far, the stiffest Defensive head on the market. The Graphics are extremely pleasing too, which is not common for D- heads. Most people say that the head is very heavy, and that was one of the things i was worried about. But after receiving this, i do not even notice the weight. Overall, extremely good head.
