Wolf Athletics was our pick to continue innovation in 2015, and they followed through. The creators of the “Ghost,” a flexible, durable, glass lacrosse shaft, have made a big leap in the after-dark lacrosse market with their latest invention. Their LED version of the Ghost features the same bulletproof construction and responsive performance in addition to the only butt-end in the world with a circuit board attached. Upon unscrewing the bottom of the cap, players can turn the shaft on or off. The design is durable and meant to last through all conditions with a waterproof seal. Continue reading to learn more!

Wolf Athletics has made headlines this year, and rightfully so. Lacrosse equipment has been pretty standard for a long time, and finally companies are beginning to change it. Plastic heads and alloy shafts seemed to be the only route until a few years back, when True Temper teamed up with companies like Epoch and the carbon revolution began. This year, Wolf took an even different take on the industry with their Ghost shaft. With a whole new material at an affordable price, it is a great new step for the game. From just $85, you can get a clear shaft, to an American themed shaft, or something as unique as their “Glow series” that we were lucky enough to get our hands on. We look forward for more to come from Wolf in 2015. If you’re interested, buy their shafts at their store, or pick up a slightly used “Glow Series” for a discount in ours.
A few weeks ago, we contacted Wolf Athletics letting them know how popular our initial post about their new bulletproof glass “Ghost” shaft was. We asked if they would be kind enough to send us a shaft to review, and soon enough, we had one in our hands. My initial thoughts were like most- a glass lacrosse shaft? How will it not shatter on first impact? Well, as it turns out, it’s a lot more durable than I thought, and that’s only one of its best attributes. Read more to see our full review of the Ghost!
With all the new carbon shafts being released lately, Wolf Athletics decided to take their product in an entirely different direction- a shaft made of bulletproof glass. This thing is made of the same material used by NASA, and the guys at Wolf claim it is shatter-proof. To back up their claim, they offer a 5-year warranty. Check out the video above to see the $85 Ghost in action. The “whip” is very evident, even more than high-flex shafts currently on the market. Supposedly adding 7+ MPH to your shot speed, the extreme flex can really add some power. Weighing in a 7.8oz, the Ghost is on the heavier side of shafts currently on the market.
