We regularly get asked about a specific head/stick for defence or attack/midfield, but with the strict FIL rules on women's sticks the ability to design one specifically for a position is not available compared with a men's stick.
The Brine Empress was originally designed as a defensive head for the US market with some features specifically advantageous for a defender. These include upper sidewall ridges to facilitate more effective checks, and a 2-screw throat for stronger fixing to the shaft.
However, this head when compared to other FIL sticks performs far better on power of shot, speed of shooting/passing, and accuracy with the ability for faster flatter passes. It is light with a very narrow sidewall to create a deeper pocket.
