DeBeer Tempest Pro

The new Tempest Pro women’s lacrosse stick is the latest innovation by the DeBeer/Gait lacrosse company.  As DeBeer has done in the past with the wildly popular Apex Lacrosse Stick, the Tempest Pro pushes the limits of stick technology and innovation it the game of women’s lacrosse.  Sticks such as the Apex, the Devine and now the Tempest Pro have helped set DeBeer apart as the leader in the women’s lacrosse.  DeBeer was recently named the sponsor the 2009 USA Women’s Lacrosse Team.

The Tempest Pro pushes the legal stick limits with ultra low sidewalls and elevated sidewall stringing holes creating the deepest possible pocket.  While these innovations do meet US Lacrosse rules, they do not meet the requirements of the IFWLA.  Additional features of the Tempest Pro include the following:

  • Patented Gripper Pro Pocket for improved ball control
  • Patent pending Lower Curved Ball Stop for increased retention and control
  • Patent pending Recessed Lacing Channel prevents wear on the top lace
  • Patent pending Runner Shock lessens pocket rebound for improved catching ability
  • 8 degree Transfer Offset System (T.O.S.) moves the offset from the head to the handle for improved feel
  • 6.5 degree Raised Ball Stop improves control, retention, and catching ability

Bottom Line:  If it’s good enough for USA Women’s Team, it’s good enough for you!
