True Temper: The New Lacrosse Brand with 100-Plus Years of History

If you’re a golfer, you’ve likely heard of True Temper — the most trusted name in golf shafts worldwide, used by more PGA Tour professionals than all other brands combined.

What you may not realize is that there’s a significant chance you’ve used their lacrosse equipment as well. For years, True Temper carved a path into the lacrosse world by developing equipment for some of the biggest brands in the sport.

What started as an exploration quickly turned into a powerful force. When athletes around the world applauded the shaft performance, True Temper decided it was time to step out from behind the curtain.

In 2015, True Sports Lacrosse was born, and the path created became a little wider.

With a start-up mentality rooted in the knowledge of how to make game-changing equipment, True made a splash in the growing lacrosse market and quickly became known for high-performance composite handles.

Athletes like John Grant Jr., Christina Esposito, Mikie Schlosser, Eli Gobrecht and Lauren Lea all trust True products on the field. In 2021, True expanded into Division I lacrosse as the official equipment supplier to the Towson and Colgate men’s teams.

And now, the new lacrosse brand that isn’t so new after all is going back to its heritage. True Sports Lacrosse is now True Temper Lacrosse — a nod to the brand’s 100-plus year tradition of building the best performance-enhancing equipment across multiple sports.

100 years.

Think about that.

One hundred years ago many people were just buying their first telephone or hearing the news on a new cutting-edge radio.

That’s how long True Temper has been making sporting goods — first with golf, then recently with hockey (you may have heard of True Hockey, as well), then lacrosse and baseball.

In each sport, the focus has always been the same: elevating the athlete’s performance. It only made sense to join all of True Temper’s brands under its established name. With an underdog mentality and winning heritage, True Temper Lacrosse will push the boundaries in the sport.

Engineers at True Temper’s Center for Sports Technology And Research (CSTAR) in San Diego move quickly yet meticulously to produce products that redefine what is possible in each sport.

The CSTAR team has recently turned out products like the NOCSAE-certified shoulder pads meeting the sport’s requirements for protective gear and the athlete’s demands for performance. They also used their knowledge to create high-performance heads like HZRDUS and VEKTR with more exciting products in the pipeline.

100 years.

That’s a long time.

True Temper may have over 100 years of creating the best equipment in the world, but in lacrosse it appears they are just getting started, making it a brand to watch in 2021 and beyond.
