Welcome back to another traditional Thursday. This week, I had the pleasure of stringing up a lacrosse head for long-time LAS reader Paul Jones. He gave me free-reign on this Easton Core, so I had to come up with something special for him.

I picked up an old Hattersley’s Viktoria (made in England) on Craigslist (thanks to Chris Tiernan for physically picking it up for me), and even though it’s a women’s stick, it was well worth putting a new men’s pocket in it to shoot around and use for coaching. Giving an old, well used stick a […]
Traditional Thursday, this week, is about honing in a few of the finer details of stringing a traditional. These adjustments that I’ve made are an attempt to confront real pocket issues by slight modification. I’ll note what the issue may be, then what was done to alleviate it. Try some.
When you look at this lacrosse head I’ve strung up, you will notice that the bottom holes aren’t like any other lacrosse head. There are only 2 holes and the sidewall is so spaced out that you can’t really pull a leather through the last sidewall like you can with a STX Proton/Super Power. So […]
We’re getting weird this week on #traditionalthursday. We’ve seen Connor Wilson’s take on the double traditional in the past, but this week I took it literally and doubled up on the lace. Let’s get down on some leather and lace theory…
Since we want you guys to get in on the goodness, we’ve teamed up with Throne of String to give away an all black, murdered out Throne of String Leathers kit. It’s everything you’ll need to string your own stick of death, and it could be none more black.
Welcome back to traditional Thursday. This week, we’re seeing how low we can go. We’re talking 2 diamond trads and diamond size theory. Sometimes less is more…
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 […]
More great break-in advice from Greg Rose: The initial advice on breaking in the pocket is to make sure all the crosslace junctions secure around the leather and keep the diamonds even. To make sure of this, keep a careful eye on the diamonds as it breaks in and use your finger to scoot the […]
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 […]
Welcome to another fantastic #TraditionalThursday! This week we’ve got a couple newly strung heads for you to check out, and a fun thing you can start doing with all of your excess string. Let’s get right to it!
Today I will show you a new pocket, inspired by an abundance of scrap string and my forever growing needs for a quicker release. This drop top features 2 strings running along the top of the scoop extremely tight. As always, the goal is to avoid the dreaded ball and plastic click and keeping everything […]
Do you spend Thursdays looking through photos of traditional pockets that OTHER people have strung? Do you wish that you too could string a mean pocket using only leather and cross lace? Today is YOUR day to learn how to string traditional for yourself!
I found this older lacrosse ball a while back, and it was a truly great find. I was running a camp, and doing a ball hunt, and I thought I’d found just another lost nugget at first. Then I pulled it out from under the bleachers, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it […]
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to talk Traditional stringing. This week, I explain how important proper spacing, tension, and break-in processes can be when you’ve just strung up a traditional stick. Get that pocket looking, throwing, and catching PERFECTLY… it’s Traditional Thursday!
