A few weeks ago, a lacrosse stick was spotted on the TV show New Girl, and the LAS Community made sure we knew about it! Not only did reader Oscar Mendoza send us a photo via the tip line, but our friends at The Lacrosse Network and Throne of String let us know about the spotting as well.
For this week’s Top String Tuesday, I wanted to bring you something special in honor of Veteran’s Day and the good ol’ US of A. Now, I can’t take credit for the creation of this top string. Our very own Michael Allen sent me a photo and suggested it may make a great TST… He was right, obviously, so I wanted to break it down through an easy to follow photo tutorial. I am a visual learner and felt that with the ins and outs of this top string it would be best to stay away from the video this week and just take you through step by step so that you can follow along at your own pace.
As mentioned in a previous Music Monday, Lorne and The Wayhighs would be announcing show soon. They’ve got a pretty awesome event lined up for New Years. Is it too early to start thinking about New Years Eve? Not when we’re talking about the Wayhighs first ever show in Yosemite at the 11th Annual Yosemite Bug New Year’s Party! You and yours are invited to join us for “an all inclusive 2 night party on the border of Yosemite National Park with a…
End Caps, a weekly review from the mind of Mark Donahue. Every weekend he will refresh your memory on what happened over the last 7 or so days. Lacrosse news and junk from the world around us!
LAS Nation, You may notice something different about my stick this week. I am using a piece of POWLAX mesh, customized for the University of Idaho. The guys over at POWLAX sent me this customized piece of mesh after I saw their stuff on Instagram. They make some unreal dye patterns on wax mesh, which seems to be skyrocketing in popularity these days. I love their mesh, keep an eye out for a full review coming soon! I saw this…
Billy Nguyen, of LaxAllStars, breaks down the Surgeon 10 lacrosse head by STX in his latest Gear Review. The review is based on a 10 point scale, see what kind of score Billy thinks it deserves.
The LXM PRO tour is on its latest stop and this weekend they are calling Dallas, TX home. Last week, Maverik United was up a cool 16-10 at the half, but Team STX put a stop to the bleeding with an 8 goal run. It came down to the wire, but Maverik could not pack another one in and Team STX held the shutout in the second half. The 8 unanswered goals were just enough to squeak past Mav U….
We have a very special Forum Friday this week. At LaxAllStars we talk a lot about growing the game, and honestly, we mean it. So when we get a post in the Community Forum saying that a dad needs help picking his son’s first stick, we can’t but lend a helping a hand!
We got a nice little package at LAS HQ a few weeks back with 4 preformed Gonzo Mesh pieces (2 white, 2 glow-in-the-dark). “Gonzo Mesh is a special coated mesh covered in a secret recipe of ingredients that makes it superior to traditional soft or hard mesh pieces in every aspect. Traditional mesh pieces bag out and become inconsistent and unusable in the elements. Wax mesh pieces tent to lost their wax coating in a rapid fashion.”
Welcome back to another awesome #traditionalthursday. This week, I answer a reader question from Jeffery Barber. He writes, I want to try a six-leather traditional in an Evo 4. It has the cut-outs in the scoop for six leathers, but only has four anchor holes in the throat of the head. Do you have any tips on how to anchor the two additional leathers? Well, fortunately for you Jeffery, I happen to have an Evo 4 laying around. Just had…
At the beginning of October, we showed you Brian Langtry’s makeshift wall ball wall. This week, we show you how John Grant Jr. plays “wall” ball.
Before Major League Lacrosse, the USCLA was by far and away the top post-collegiate field lacrosse league in the world. Teams ranged from up and down the East Coast, and the number of legendary players to grace the USCLA is unrivaled.
Since the fall ball season is wrapping up, I figured it would be a good time to reach out to see how the boys at Brown University are doing. Brown hosted some pretty unique scrimmages this fall, let’s see what’s going on with the Bears.
Photo Credit: Pat Colleluori, HEADstrong I was fortunate enough to get time to talk with the HEADstrong foundation, specifically about their Lax Stache Madness campaign. Pat Colleluori Jr. was kind enough to take his time to answer any questions we could come up with about their foundation, the campaign, and the progression of HEADstrong. Pat is the HEADstrong director of development and a brother of Nick Colleluori, the Hofstra lacrosse player who lost his battle with large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a blood…
Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars reviews the Charge Sci-Ti lacrosse shaft made by Under Armour. He has used the shaft in games all fall, now he’s ready to let you know his honest opinion.
You hear really strange rule interpretations when working as a traveling lacrosse official. I listen to the most incorrect explanations of what the current lacrosse rules are at every level I officiate and every region I do games in. In this post I cover what I consider the Top 10 Rule Myths in NFHS and NCAA Boys Lacrosse and I bust those myths using the 2013 rulebooks for each respective level.
Yesterday was a big day for StringKing Lacrosse with the release of Type 1s Lacrosse Mesh, a new product the company spent months engineering. StringKing touts that the softer construction of Type 1s Mesh allows a lacrosse player to be more aware of where the ball is sitting in his pocket during both the cradle and the release.
Over the past few weeks we have been digging into what I call the “dropped top string.” Two weeks ago I strung up a Huron Top String and last week I showed you how to string a quick and easy Iroquois Top String. This week I’m teaming up with the one and only, big Billy Nguyen to bring you a fresh take on the how and why one might string a pita or traditional pocket with a dropped top string….
Halloweekend may be over, and I’ve compiled some of the best lacrosse-related Halloween photos from Instagram and Twitter. There are many more than this, but these were some of my favorites. Check out this weeks Photo(s) of the Week with our Halloween Blowout Edition.
