The idea behind Head Wrapz was always a good one. They provided a cheaper alternative to team helmets that allowed for more customization than ever before. The only problem was the cost and a big part of that was shipping. A purchaser would have to mail their lacrosse helmet (or their entire team’s helmets!) to Las Vegas, wait for it to be wrapped, and then wait for it to be shipped back to them. It wasn’t a killer but it definitely made the product just a little less appealing.
Well now Head Wrapz has found a way to send you a kit at home so you can install it yourself! This is a quantum leap in helmet sticker technology and needed to happen for this to really take off. Now you can order a set of Head Wrapz, have them made and shipped to you or your players, which streamlines the process and allows for much quicker turnaround times.
The first team to utilize this approach was the Vegas Starz, and they used it for the Adrenaline Challenge and although the helmets underneath aren’t all the exact same, the effect is awesome. These guys look like a real team out there!! I’m hoping a couple of college teams go this route in 2011. UNC lacrosse already has!
