SummaryThe Thompson i6—which stands for Iroquois Six Nations—is an all-purpose head designed for all ages and skill levels, for both field and box lacrosse. Thompson Lacrosse and the i6 head represent a collaboration between Mohawk lacrosse players from Akwesasne and some of the most experienced and knowledgeable stick stringers in the lacrosse industry.
The i6 features a sidewall inspired by the Iroquois Confederacy flag, which is based on the Hiawatha Wampum Belt created centuries ago to symbolize the unity of the Iroquois tribes. Emblematic of the five original tribes, the Iroquois flag has come to represent all of the Six Nations of the confederacy: Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk and Tuscarora.
The i6 was designed with the understanding that every lacrosse head needs a great pocket for a player to perform at the highest level. Engineering the i6 began from a stringer’s perspective. It started at the scoop, with large strategically placed eyelets that allow mesh to be pulled tight and secure and recessed on the backside to protect top strings and leather from premature wear. The sidewall was optimized with 18 holes, carefully spaced to allow for tight channels in mesh and any pocket placement. Of course, the i6 also accommodates traditional and custom stringing thanks to proper hole size and placement, allowing easy stringing and ideal pocket placement. The i6 was built to be a stringer’s dream.
Along with benefits for stringing, the i6 enhances player performance through several design features. The i6 scoop sits at the perfect angle, radius and with a leading edge to make the most difficult ground balls seem effortless. The scoop and sidewalls are designed with a firm flex to add power to to your shots. The firm flex also accommodates the tightest channels in mesh pockets without loosing flex or warping. The rigid throat in the i6 distributes power to the sidewalls and to the scoop.
