Traditional Thursday: Woodie New Pocket

Lee Southren hooked me up with an old box lacrosse stick from the Mohawk Lacrosse Stick Manufacturing Company and since the pocket was a little beat up, I took it out and threw a brand new traditional pocket in there. It came out beautifully, and when I played wall ball with it yesterday.

Traditional Thursday: Old Wood, New Life

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 new life. Sounds like a job for Traditional Thursday.

There are a lot of really nice old wooden sticks out there, and there are a number of stick makers who do fantastic work. Alf Jacques and Mitchell Brothers are two men who still make wonderful sticks today, but back in the day an Etienne Martin was another gem, and if you can find one of these oldies, scoop it up!

It was my first time fixing up a woodie, but the stick came out great, and throws on a dime. It was so nice that I convinced myself I could shoot a skeet pigeon out of the air… I did come pretty close!

Traditional Thursday: Wooden Stick Tricks

0 - Published September 19, 2013 by in Stick Tricks, The Life, Training

I’m back at it with Stick Tricks in the Basement, and while I haven’t added many new tricks, I am now pulling them off with a wooden box lacrosse stick. The woodie makes these tricks much harder. Thankfully, the location is still pretty killer. It slightly makes up for my average display of wizardry.
