Stringing Traditional

The Best Traditional Leathers

Forum Friday

Welcome to Forum Friday! Everyday there are great conversations taking place in the LAS CommunityIf you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do! And while you’re at it, you might as well watch this silly video update we created too. We hope it provides you with an easy way to connect with other lacrosse fans all over the world.

Traditional stringing has always been a big topic here at LAS, and this week’s Forum Friday is a question about the best leathers to use. This matter is clearly based on opinion, but with so many options these days, from Throne to East Coast Dyes to Jimalax and more, hearing testimonials from other players in the LAS Community is a huge blessing!

As of now, I’ve only ever used Jimalax leathers in my traditional pockets. I’ve heard some good things about MinLax leathers and a few other companies leathers as well. What do you guys use? What has worked best for you? I’m looking to get a new head and string a fresh pita or traditional in it and I’m really looking forward to what you guys say!

Have any experience straining traditional? Have a favorite type of leather? Share your story in the original post!
