A Gamebreaker: The High-Ball Pocket and You
Goalies do not like our Zebra Heads.  Not at all.  

They have 'trouble seeing' the head. Which, for shooters, is a very good thing.  

The good folk at the Royal Society in Great Britain published an article that helps
us understand why.

According to John A. Endler zebra stripe camouflage is a function of "disruptive coloration."  

Simply,  'disruptively colored elements (stripes) distract attention and break up the body
outline, making detection difficult."
(Thayer 1909; Cott 1940; Stevens & Cuthill 2006).

It is also noted that a study by Schaefer & Stobbe (2006) shows that the advantage of
disruptive patterns is greater when disruptive patterns have higher contrast.

Disruptive coloration has also been proven effective regardless of the background
coloration,  'exploiting predators cognitive mechanisms of prey recognition."

Competitive Bottom Line: our Zebra's heads' "disruptive coloration" is an
effective means of confusing the visual system,  serving to break up the head's
outline, especially when moving at speed.

have to do is get in touch with it. Stop thinking...let things
happen...and be...the ball."   Ty Webb in Caddyshack

We know that attackmen do not like to be poke
checked with Savage7's.  Probably because it's
the stiffest head in the game.  As for Ground
Balls, you can come in vertically, to keep your
long pole out of harm's way.  And,  bonus time,  
it rakes real fast.  So rake first, accept high-fives
for clearing the ball second.

The Sceptre7 is nastily stiff for such a light head.
Screw it onto a  Beastmaster7 shaft and you've
