Traditional Thursday: Inside Billy’s Mind

0 - Published November 21, 2013 by in Stringing, Traditional

I’m beginning to see this style shooting string pop up everywhere now, often at youth practices, and usually in neon colors for some reason… But I couldn’t ignore it any longer, especially now that our boy Ratzke hooked us up with a tutorial and in depth explanation on how it works. I decided to try […]

Traditional Thursday: 6 Leather Traditional

Today I will show you a new pocket, inspired by an abundance of scrap string and my forever growing needs for a quicker release.

I’ve been stringing a ton of traditional pockets lately and haven’t really gotten the chance to string a mesh pocket. When I did decide to go back to mesh, I […]

Traditional Thursday: Billy’s Recent Work

Some of these pockets have been used in multiple heads already, and some have even been played with in the rain. These leathers take a beating from scooping groundballs on the NYC concrete sidewalks. I’ve been trying a little bit of everything, from removable top strings to sidewalls and water-proof leathers.

Traditional Thursday: Jeremy Thompson Replica Part 2

0 - Published August 8, 2013 by in Stringing, Traditional

Last week’s Traditional Thursday saw Connor Wilson’s take on Jeremy Thompson’s one-twist pita pocket. This week, I bring to you a throwback with my take on Jeremy Thompson’s pocket. When I strung this pocket up earlier this summer, I actually had no idea that Jeremy Thompson was using a similar set up. In fact, I […]
