Conan blew out the sidewall of his Revo Pro in Lancaster -- irreparably -- so we're on the market for a new head.

Ive noticed that conan likes more pinched heads such as warriors "pro" series of heads. But incase he is looking for a wider one that wont break and wont warp than tell him about a bionic

strong, cheap, un-warpable, and wide for more surface area to pick off passes.

If he is still looking for somthing pinched, then the new gait asylum might be good for him. very pinched and from what i have heard, is strong.

and of course, if you can get your hands on the discontinued wizard or X2, then that would be your best bet

EDIT: heres the wizard. Not the prettiest of heads but very very strong.

And i am always here if conan needs a head strung for less than 50 bucks...

Yeah, those are some good heads.

Never get any Brine head, the only good one for D is the Motive. People are saying the Clutch is good but it still hasn't been proven as a good D head.

Motive:

Or you can get the new Revolution 2.0:

gigo had some good sugestions. But The motive isnt the only decent defencive brine head. A lot of guys like the discontinued brine edges, or the newer more pinched brine e3. both are pretty strong

I liked the wizard, they were great, I have one, the only thing it has is a small crack after a long seried of brutal slap checks, poke checks, and being steped on and generally abused. So it is a tad brittle but a great great strong head that will last you for a very long time.,. Also try the Warior Mojo, i just got it and it is really really good.

I use a Warrior Platinum Alloy, its light and sturdy, and i have just one dent in it. It does scratch a lot but it doesn't mess up the handle of it. It can take the checks pretty well though.
