2047.07.26: Shinsei Industries Introduces New L+ Stick ModelShinsei Industries today unveiled their new LS1001 stick design which incorporates a gun into the shaft of the crosse. Previously, many players held the stick in one hand, and had a gun available for the other to use. Some pilots surveyed say they choose not to upgrade at this time, but will be watching how well the stick works in the hands of others. Shinsei hopes the LS1001 will replace gun pods such as those from Howard Industries. In what is seen as an act of goodwill, the company is making the stick available for all teams in Lacrosse Plus.
