Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today’s post will focus on wooden lacrosse sticks, but there is so much more to say and see that a video was quite simply required.

I used goalie leathers from Stick Doctor as my four leather runners. I used the original cat gut sidewall, and was even able to salvage original leather from the pocket to re-attach the cat gut to the wooden wall. I then used about 26 feet of cross lace to string the tight ten-diamond pocket.
We scour the nether regions of eBay for the coolest lacrosse gear so you don’t have to. Welcome to the Treasures of eBay! First up: an entire set of 12 Ojibwe Native American lacrosse sticks.
Welcome back to another Traditional Thursday. Today I re-string a Bacharach Rasin vintage wooden lacrosse stick. Big thanks to Joe Nocella of Brooklyn Lacrosse Club and 718 Cyclery for hooking it up!
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.
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!
Last week our Forum Friday was about what would to choose for a wooden shaft. This week, we’re continuing the wood theme, but moving on to lacrosse heads! It’s time to look at traditionally strung wood heads.
Welcome to an epic #TraditionalThursday post! This one is chock full of info, photos, tips, questions, and more. Buckle up the old leather seatbelt, tighten your sidewalls, and get that spool of cross lace ready!
This post is an oldie but goodie in the LAS Community Forum that has gained a lot of new discussion over the last few weeks. It’s all about wood lacrosse sticks, and what type of wood is best.
StylinStrings caught up with three of the Thompson brothers up in Syracuse at the Wooden Stick Expo last month. The guys talk about their wooden sticks, the history of the game, and what it was like to see the documentary, The Medicine Game, unfold before their eyes.
StylinStrings made the trek up to Syracuse, NY for the first ever Wooden Stick Expo. The SS guys put together a fantastic video showcasing some of the top notch stuff going down. Looks like it was one heck of an experience!
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.
On September 28th and 29th, Syracuse University, in association with the Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) and Skä-noñh—Great Law of Peace Center, will put on the first ever Haudenosaunee Wooden Stick Lacrosse Expo. The event, which will be free, and open to the public, will take place at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool.
