Do you buy items online often? Do you get them shipped to your house for free? To be honest, several years ago, I was very hesitant about buying things online. I was always worried that they would arrived damaged or I wouldn’t get what I originally wanted.
This made me stop even looking at things online and decided I was strictly going to buy things in person from a store. But one Boxing Day changed that all.
I braced myself for the crowds, but I was astounded at how crazy my local mall became that day. I spent, (I’m not kidding) over two hours looking for parking alone. When I went in the stores, I was constantly being knocked over and waited in line for hours on end.
At one store, I reached the cash register and said, “I am never shopping on Boxing Day again!” The man working said, “Why don’t you just buy the sales online?” That one question changed my entire life. I had NO idea that all the Boxing Day deals were online and on top of that, if I spent a certain amount I could get free shipping.
There was no CON to shopping online, I was hooked! Since then, I have become an avid researcher to help guide people in the right direction of what they should buy and what they shouldn’t.
One thing I constantly buy online is sporting equipment, as my family is big into sports. One sport we play a lot is lacrosse. There are so many lacrosse brands available on the market today that vary in price, size, and playing type.
It can be overwhelming but I am here to help guide you towards what will be great buys and what will be mediocre buys! One lacrosse brand is the STX Lacrosse Women’s Crux 100 Stick. It is available online for purchase!

Before I get into my verdict, I want to let you in on a little secret I have found since I started my online shopping craze. I have learned from experience, especially when it comes to certain products, to go to the store to test it in person before you buy.
I know this can be a hassle but believe me it is usually worth it. I remember one time I was looking into buying a hockey stick. I found one I really loved online, and it said the measurements would be a great fit for my body type.
When it arrived, I was shocked, it was completely too small for me and the measurements were off. But if I had just gone in person to my local mall and looked at that brand, I would’ve seen it would be too small for me!
So always make sure you test it out in person. If you don’t have time for that, check into the warranty/return policy on the product. Better safe than sorry!
All that being said, I only recommend buying the STX Lacrosse Women’s Crux 100 Stick if you are between the ages of 10-13 and are a young girl! This is not a stick for a professional player, but it is made well for beginners.
Someone who is just starting out will love this stick: it has a great look and worked really great for my daughter. However, someone, like me who plays in a more competitive league should look for more higher end products! Thank you for taking the time to read this and happy playing!
