Who On Team USA Plays with Dita?

Michelle Kasold:
"I love my Dita EXA MK18 because I helped design it. It is exactly formed to what I want in a stick. It has a great balance of power and touch. It feels smooth with dribbling skills, but provides tremendous power for hitting, as well. It is the perfect elite stick."

Stefanie Fee:
"I love to play with the Dita EXA 200 (2013 edition). The unique mold enhances 3D dribbling skills and offers elite execution of precision passing and aerials."

Kat Sharkey: "The Black Cat is a very light stick, which allows me to get quick shots off from anywhere in the circle. In addition, I feel I have much more power in both my forehand and backhand shots with the Black Cat. I really feel that the touch and feel of this stick gives me complete control as an attacker and makes me a threat in the circle."

Lauren Pfeiffer: "I love the EXA200 because of the toe shape -- it allows for easy control on the ball and is great for aerial play. The hit is solid and I can also get a nice drag flick from it. I played forward and now I'm back in the deep defense -- this is a great stick for either position."
