In this week’s Hit the Field Friday we will be studying the latest version of one of the more storied lacrosse heads, the Brine Clutch IV, and the new technology that separates it from its predecessors.
Since the inception of the Brine Clutch head, players have praised its narrow face design, its offset nature and its stiff structure. All of these factors reinforce the characteristics of an offensive player who requires a stick that provides a consistent release, and one that can withstand a thrashing from opposing defenses. Throughout a few the previous variations of the original Clutch head, the stiff structure that players originally raved about had disappeared. That is why Brine has come back to its roots by featuring a new technology in the Clutch’s fourth edition.
When you pick up the new Brine Clutch IV head you will notice a distinct secondary colored material in the throat of the head. On most color variations, this secondary color will be grey, while on the grey head it will show up as lime green. This added material is Brine’s patented Vari-Flex technology which is designed to increase the stiffness of the head in strategic areas. To accomplish this, Brine hollowed out the throat of the Clutch IV and filled it in with their Vari-Flex core, a much stiffer material constructed to maintain that stiffness in any weather condition. Added stiffness can often mean added weight, but in order to maintain the head’s lightweight reputation, Brine also added in their strategic Core-Tech system which eliminates excess weight in strategic areas on the head.
