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.
This week’s Forum Friday is awesome. So much of what we discuss as lacrosse players, especially in the LAS Community Forums, revolves around stringing. So why wouldn’t we want to get to know each other…through our stringing!
Talking Pockets is back with another MCLA interview. This time, we talk pockets with Sonoma State sophomore Michael Tomita, who strung up a then-brand new Lakota U head at the beginning of the summer.
For our first entry in our expanded Talking Pockets series, we’re bringing you another player interview, this time from the MCLA ranks. A few weeks ago, Sam May, sophomore middie at UCLA, took some time to talk about his newly strung pocket at Bruins Lax Summer Camp.
This pocket is perfect for CW, and it is now his go-to style of stringing sticks. He used to use a V or U shooter, but since that’s no longer legal in college, CW had pretty much taken it out of how he strings sticks. Here is Connor Wilson’s perfect mesh lacrosse pocket stringing tutorial.
This week’s Traditional Thursday features a feat none of us at the LAS mothership have ever tried before: A Goalie Traditional.
Here is a little video from Greg about breaking in your traditional pocket, and getting the leather to stretch, without getting too much whip on your wand!
When James Pannell wasn’t coaching kids, or playing a vicious game of P-I-G against his brother, Rob, he was getting peppered by questions from yours truly. This time around I asked James about his custom UVA dye, his pocket, and how he and his classmates adjusted to the new college rules, including the 2010 heads, and 2013 stringing rules.
This week, Forum Friday is all about the crosslace?
This week’s Traditional Thursday selects a couple of readers’ questions, and then answers them! Want to know more about the floating sidewall? Or how to keep your stick from bagging out and whipping shots into the ground?
“It’s not the wand, it’s the wizard” – Duff Goldman. Truer words could not have been spoken, especially when it comes to lacrosse. The problem comes when a new lacrosse player has a brand new stick with a horrendous factory pocket in it.
#TraditionalThursdays are back, and we’re featuring a two-leather pocket called the Eagle’s Nest. It almost looks like Monster Mesh, but it’s cross lace and leather.
There has been some great conversation so far this year. See what interested the LAS Nation the most in 2012!
Billy Bitter gets in on the #TraditionalThursdays action with a wide diamond traditional in a Maverik Bad Boy head.
