Hot Pot: The Real Swag

0 - Published October 23, 2013 by in Gear, Hot Pot

There is something to be said for basic, get-down-to-business apparel, both athletic and otherwise. I don’t mind that there are so many manufacturers of apparel out there, but I am slightly concerned that the focus isn’t where it needs to be most of the time. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’re starting to get to leather jogging pants levels in some cases.

If you’re a dedicated lacrosse player, odds are you’re putting in a decent amount of time on the wall. You’ll probably be scooping the occasional groundball off the pavement or hard packed dirt. These rough surfaces will eventually take a toll on your scoop and topstring. In order to keep your topstring from completely fraying and giving out on you, we have a great little Lax Hack from Justin at Stylin Strings.

A couple weekends ago we were lucky enough to make it down to LXM 801 in Orem, UT. I caught a peek of Matt Russell and Johnny Rodriguez’s goalie clinic and I noticed something a little different about Matt’s pocket. One of the high school guys, focused on the lesson, pulled Matt aside when he […]

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 was totally weird!

Lax Hacks: Saving Your Butt

0 - Published September 28, 2013 by in Gear, Lax Hacks, The Life

This simple Lax Hack will keep your shaft from “cookie cuttering” your rubber end cap. Personally I don’t use rubber butt ends anymore but I used to use this trick to keep my shafts from ripping apart the rubber and exposing the metal. Not only is an uncovered butt end dangerous but it’s also illegal and you’ll be putting your team at risk for an unnecessary penalty.
