The StringKing Mark 2G is the lightest lacrosse goalie head on the market, which allows for faster reaction times in net. The Mark 2G has 48 sidewall stringing holes, making it the highly customizable goalie and its shorter throat makes it easier to scoop up ground balls or deflections.
In men's lacrosse, a goalie stick head is much larger than player sticks and must be between 10 and 12 inches wide under NCAA regulations or up to 15 inches (38 cm) wide under FIL regulations.
When measured top to bottom a lacrosse goalie head must not exceed 16.5 inches.
A lacrosse goalie can hold the ball for up to 4 seconds. However, if the goaltender decides not to pass the ball or take it out of the crease and run with it, then the opposing team will get possession of the ball once those 4 seconds expire.
There is no pocket depth limit for goalies, so they can be as deep as desired to suit the player's needs. Typically, it is standard for goalie pockets to be at least 2-3 balls deep. This increased depth allows goalies to withstand the considerable force of oncoming lacrosse shots when they're in goal and ensure a smooth, controlled save.
