End Caps, a weekly review from the mind of Mark Donahue. Every weekend he will refresh your memory on what happened over the last 7 or so days. Lacrosse news and junk from the world around us! (11/16/2013)
Saturday is here and that means it’s time to work on those stick skills. In the past we have had some kind of either stick flips or sidewall stalls. This week is a little of both. Take a peek at the trick this week called the spin cycle! Remember to master the basics of the trick before trying all of it.
So technically this is a Salt Shakerz Instagram post, but I saw it on their Twitter, so it still counts. In some downtime at the Las Vegas Lacrosse Showcase, this Shaker got his juggling game going!

LAS Nation, You may notice something different about my stick this week. I am using a piece of POWLAX mesh, customized for the University of Idaho. The guys over at POWLAX sent me this customized piece of mesh after I saw their stuff on Instagram. They make some unreal dye patterns on wax mesh, which seems to be skyrocketing in popularity these days. I love their mesh, keep an eye out for a full review coming soon! I saw this…
Photo Credit: Pat Colleluori, HEADstrong I was fortunate enough to get time to talk with the HEADstrong foundation, specifically about their Lax Stache Madness campaign. Pat Colleluori Jr. was kind enough to take his time to answer any questions we could come up with about their foundation, the campaign, and the progression of HEADstrong. Pat is the HEADstrong director of development and a brother of Nick Colleluori, the Hofstra lacrosse player who lost his battle with large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a blood…
Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars reviews the Charge Sci-Ti lacrosse shaft made by Under Armour. He has used the shaft in games all fall, now he’s ready to let you know his honest opinion.
Over the past few weeks we have been digging into what I call the “dropped top string.” Two weeks ago I strung up a Huron Top String and last week I showed you how to string a quick and easy Iroquois Top String. This week I’m teaming up with the one and only, big Billy Nguyen to bring you a fresh take on the how and why one might string a pita or traditional pocket with a dropped top string….
Lacrosse Mustache Madness 2013 is in full swing, and I’m thinking that it’s about time LaxAllStars got in on the Madness. As of today, we officially invite you to join us in growing some facial hair and raising funds for the HEADstrong Foundation.
End Caps time, here we go. No Shave Novembeard is here! For the first time in my life I think my face has accumulated enough peach fuzz to shamefully attempt to grow facial hair, and not shave at all this month. Stay tuned for my pathetic, hairless updates.
Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars shows you how to get all the girls in another installment of Stick Trick Saturday (11/01/2013). The series is designed to be an inspirational guide for lacrosse players to get used to the properties of their own stick. Tricks are not just to show off but to develop a better relationship between the player and his crosse. This one is called the “The Girlfriend Getter.”
This week I will walk you through my approach to stringing an Iroquois top string. Like the Huron top string, the Iroquois top string features what I call a “dropped top string”.
Buenos dias! You’re back for another run down on the what’s what and who’s who in lacrosse. End Caps is back and recapping what’s goin’ on.
Ever notice those unsightly marks on the inside of your lacrosse head? Those ball burns are a result of friction and appear over time. Sure they add character to your stick but if you’re ever looking to simply erase those dark marks, I’ve got a Lax Hack for you!
Big thanks need to go out to Blackfeet Lacrosse for hooking me up with the mini pita for this week’s stick trick video. The Crossover will help you out with your hand eye coordination, and as always help you develop soft hands.
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 symmetrical, in this asymmetrical traditional pocket.
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.
Nike has been slowly getting their foot in the door for a few years now. Their explosion in popularity in the Lakota head is what helped Nike really get some exposure. Now with the Ceo U, they are looking to build on that growth. Let’s get down to brass tax with an LAS Gear Review!
Mark Donahue recaps the past week inside and outside the sport of lacrosse.
