  • Is it legal?  Yes.  Regulators approved the Phantom Pocket for US youth and US high school games and for games at all levels in Canada.  Click your area to view the approval.
     
  • Why is it better?  The Phantom Pocket is the only pocket that teaches good form.  It’s your coach outside of practice.
     
    • Learning lacrosse requires two things: a good pocket and good form.  If you have a bad pocket, you’re going to have bad form.  Even with a good pocket, beginners naturally use bad form.  Think of how everyone throws a baseball for the first time.  Bad form is guaranteed because it's natural.  
       
    • Every other pocket lets a player use bad form.  Then wall ball can make bad form become your form.  Most players who improve have someone fixing their pocket and teaching them good form outside of practice.  Everyone else is on their own.
       
    • The Phantom Pocket doesn’t work with bad form but it’s amazing if you use good form.  It teaches good form so you can reach your goals.    
       
  • Who is the Phantom Pocket designed for?  Every beginner will benefit from a pocket that teaches good form.  If you’re an intermediate player who wants more playing time, the problem might be your form.  The longer you play with bad form, the harder it is to change.
  • What happens when I get better?  The Phantom Pocket continues to perform as you get better.  Want to rip shots, throw fakes and have a sick toe drag?  The Phantom Pocket has amazing hold and can handle the most advanced moves.  We want to give you the best performance possible, not a beginner pocket that requires you to upgrade later.

  • Will it work in my favorite head?  The Phantom Pocket works with virtually every head.  Check the recommendations on the checkout page.
     
  • Is it a high pocket?  The Phantom Pocket is a hybrid pocket.  It has the shooting, passing, catching, hold and scooping advantages of a high pocket and it one-hand cradles like a low pocket.
     
  • Why a hybrid pocket?  We wanted to solve a big problem: most beginners have to teach themselves how to throw and catch.  The longer they practice with bad form, the harder it is to change.  The solution would have to work really well if you use good form, but not work that well if you use bad form.  That would teach good form -- but it sounds impossible.  Phantom's hybrid pocket solved it.  
     
  • Why does it use special connectors?  Strings stretch and knots loosen.  If your pocket starts throwing differently, then you’re going to throw differently.  The best way to learn good form is with a consistent pocket that never changes.
     
  • How long does it take to install?  Five minutes.  Four toggles at the scoop and one snap at the throat.  Zero knots to tie.
     
  • How much does it cost?  $30
     
  • What if I decide it's not for me?  Our warranty/return policy is: if you're not happy, send it back for a replacement or a full refund of the purchase price.  We donate returned pockets to our nonprofit partners to grow the game in the US and internationally.
