"One of the best heads you can possibly use."
Weight- Before purchasing my Torque, I did a bit of research and talked to some Torque owners here on TLF. I was expecting a very light head, something that matched the weight of my P2, and maybe even my friendís Answer. Well, of course, that expectation was fulfilled. This head is light. And I mean REALLY light. Weight-wise, this head feels as light as even the lightest heads out there. I canít ask for anything more in the weight-field. Its light. Plain and simple.Flexibility/Stability- Now that youíve just read the weight part of this review, you probably thought to yourself, ďOk so this head is lightÖ thus it has to be really flimsy.Ē Well, this is no Truth, no Truth at all (sorry to all Truth fanboys). This thing is STIFF. And I really mean STIFF. Somehow Gait did a spectacular job with having an awesome strength to weight ratio. Donít get me wrong, Iíve face offed with this head, and itís great. Its stiff, but not rock-hard. Itís flexible enough to take a face off, yet stiff enough to avoid easy warping at the sidewalls near the throat (ahem Evo Pro ahem). Stringing- My second favorite part of this head. Please read the following statement over and over again: THERE ARE 15 SIDEWALL HOLES! And not just any sidewall holes, actually large sidewall holes that are really easy to string through. You donít have to use tweezers anymore. Just put the string through and thatís it. No tape, no tweezers, no using scissors or a knife to scrape off plastic to make the hole bigger. No nothing. Just put the string through. All of these extra sidewall holes gives any stringer (mesh or trad) tons of options. You can literally string this to your absolute personal preference. But, with virtues comes vices. With such large holes, the sidewall strings tend to get a bit loose after some prolonged use. Not a huge problem, theyíre still supportive, just a bit loose. Also, there are two sidewall holes near the throat where youíre supposed to tie the knot. Unfortunately, they are really small, so this time, you have to use a blade or scissors to grind through them to make them bigger. Pinch- Another good part about this head- itís pinch. Now, youíll notice it doesnít have an extremely tight pinch like that of the E3, Primer, etc. But, itíll get the job done. Itís offered me great control in my games, offering a great catching area and great protection. Itís nice and narrow (but not too narrow) near the throat and opens up to be pretty wide near the scoop. Since this head has such a small face size, I do not recommend this to beginners, only to a bit more advanced intermediate players and experienced players. Scoop- Now, I have to admit. This is my least favorite part of this head. But, it still has a great scoop. Using Gaitís patented V scoop, it allows ground balls to enter the head in the middle. To players who scoop the right way (knees bent, butt of stick low, upper hand choked near the throat), this is no problem. But, if you scoop standing up and/or with one hand, you might have to learn how to scoop the proper way (in my opinion). Nonetheless, it has a great scoop. Ground balls are easy, and it also allows for less fraying of the topstring (because of its shape, really only the middle part of it makes contact to the ground, allowing the outer parts to be virtually untouched). Offset- This is my absolutely favorite part of this head. I bow down to the person(s) who thought of Gait Canted Technology (was it Gary himself?). I have never owned a head with more offset. Only my E3 can match it. It is AWESOME. Restating what I said in my E3 review, ďcradling is a dream.Ē Of course, for anyone thatís unfamiliar with offset, it allows for more centrifugal force on the ball when cradling. And with more force, comes more protection. I canít say anything more about it. The offset is sick. Period. Overall value- Ok, compared to a lot of other expensive heads, this head is actually very reasonable. On online lax websites, it goes for about $70-$80, but youíll be able to find Torqueís for a much lower price on ebay. Final thoughts- Buy this head. You donít get anymore bang for your buck.

"Amazing"
Used to use the STX Fuse, but now have used the torque for some time. Lightest head on the market, throws great, pretty consistent with accuarcy, I use 3 shooting strings up top, and works well.

"Wicked Sick head"
I got this head a couple of days ago and had my brother string it. Its pretty sick. When i decided to buy the head my first worry was about its durability becuase it was so light. (4.5 oz). Now that i have played with it for a couple of days i relized how stiff it is and its a great value. The thing most lax players dont relize before buying a stick is that it is not the stick that makes the difference, its the player. You dont always have to buy the latest and greatest. Buy the stick that will be the best for you. When you buy your head buy the mesh seperatly and have sombody on your local varsity team string it for you. The stringing jobs that come with your head that you can get at a sports store or online suck.

"Amazing"
It is an amazing head! I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great head that is at a low price! It is slightly pinched, has great ball control, and has much whip. I scored 8 goals and 4 assists in 1 game! I love it!

"Strongly recommend for middie. "
This head provides accurate passing and makes it simpler to catch or pick up ground balls. Its very durable and similar to the evolution. It is a cross between the matrix and the cyber. Would recommend with traditional mesh.

"light as air"
The gait Torque is a start of the best new lax company. Paul Gait gave one to my Dad at the national convention and I can't stop playing with this super light head. I have not put it on a new shaft it still on the aluminum and it still i one of the lightest sticks I own.
