After many hours of exporting, and then uploading, and then processing, the 43 minute 43 second multiple string traditional tutorial is up and live. It’s in-depth, and there are helpful tips smattered throughout.
Stylin Strings sent over an LAS-themed mini stick, complete with a pita pocket, and I love that mini sticks are getting the traditional love.
This week’s Traditional Thursday features a feat none of us at the LAS mothership have ever tried before: A Goalie Traditional.
Doug Trettin is back with another killer traditional pocket, and this it’s a one of a kind prototype, called the EverPocket Zeroh (as in zero buttons!). If you’ve seen Doug’s older EverPockets, you know he is a button King.
Piotr Stalmach from Mesh Wizard in Poland has some awesome tips for stringing sticks, and this week, he’s showing us how to do the X-Up Top String for traditional sticks!
This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!
This week’s Traditional Thursday focuses on two new pockets Connor Wilson strung up, the Drop Top Traditional and the Double Traditional. Connor also answers some fantastic reader questions, and keep dropping that tradish knowledge!
Towards the end of the college season, work picked up to the point that I couldn’t string as much as I’d like to, but now that things are slowing down just a little bit, I’ve found the time to dial just a couple of sticks… here’s a look at some of the heads I’ve been stringing.
While in in Prague, CW had the pleasure of meeting Piotr Stalmach, of Mesh Wizard fame (based out of Poland), and Piotr graciously offered to create a new traditional top string video tutorial for us.
Last week Billy met up with a couple of guys from Throne of String, Cesar and Chris, and the three of us got the chance to hang out, and learn how to string traditional, down in Brooklyn, with the one and only Greg Rose of Zen, Lacrosse, and the Art of Stringing.
Lance Gibson strung up a super clean 6-diamond traditional pocket in a brand new Brine Clutch Elite, sent the photos in, and even referred to it as a “Connor Pocket” because he used a tear drop top string. I am honored that anyone would name their traditional work after me, but when a stringer of Lance’s quality does it? It’s a pure compliment!
Do you have a traditional pocket that you love, but you worry that you will someday break the plastic head that it is in? And do you not use the traditional because of the 100% rational fear? If so, or if you have a broken stick with a great leather and lace pocket in it, have no fear! CW is here to show you how to move your traditional pocket from one head to another…
Next week we’ll get back to answering Reader Questions, but this week we’re focusing on the 20th Annual Ales Hrebesky Memorial, where we found a TON of leather and lace. It was a beautiful sight to take in!
Welcome back to Traditional Thursday! This week we’re coming at you from Columbus, Ohio. Billy Nguyen was fortunate enough to hang out and talk about traditional pockets with Steele Stanwick at the Midwest Lacrosse store last weekend.
Doug Runs SONofaHON down in Maryland, and he is the creator of the EverPocket, which is a removable/replaceable traditional pocket. Now Doug is back with a beaded traditional string, and while it’s one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in a while, it’s also one of the cooler things I’ve seen… Love the creativity!
Last week I filmed a bunch of MLL guys training for the 2013 season. After it was all said and done, I got the opportunity to speak with Ari Sussman of the Boston Cannons, and we hit up the topic of traditional stringing because, well, what the heck else would we talk about?
Welcome to another Traditional Thursday! This week we’re back, and answering reader submitted questions about traditional stringing and pockets.
