After setting up your head with a pocket, the last thing to do is fit on a handle. There are
many choices out there, though at Rock-it Pocket, we only carry handles that we have high
esteem for. In a sense, we have taken much of the hard work in finding a handle out of the
equation. Still, we carry over 20 attack/midfield length handles. Here are some guidelines
to picking the right one for you:
Beginners don't need to spend a lot of money on a handle. First of all,
younger players aren't going to break many handles the way they will in high school and
college. Secondly, they are likely to go through many handles as they discover their style
and what they like. Outside of the Alloy 6000 (which should only be used by very young
players), all of these handles are quality and their pricing is affordable.
Our mid-range handles range a little better in terms of ability level. While some of our
extremely high-end handles may be out of your price range, this group is both durable,
affordable and popular. C405 (Krypto) alloys have a solid metal feel while the
Scandium handles feel a little lighter and less durable. There are plusses and
minuses to both.
These are some of the most expensive handles we, or anyone else for that matter, will carry.
On the other hand, they are also going to give you the most for your money. We recommend
that only the most dedicated and advanced players pick from this list. As you can see, the

quality handle, but you usually will GET a quality handle if you do. Most
Titanium handles will last for several years while inexpensive handles may need to be
replaced more often.
We only carry several styles of defense handles. They will fall into the same categories as
