This week’s Traditional Thursday features a feat none of us at the LAS mothership have ever tried before: A Goalie Traditional.
From lacrosse uniforms to new products, helmets, pads, sticks and more, our Gear section has it all. Your source for the newest lax gear and equipment!
Welcome to Forum Friday! There are already some great conversations taking place in the all new LAS Community. If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do! And while you’re at it, you might as well watch this silly video update we created too. We hope it provide you with an easy way to connect with other lacrosse fans all over the world. This week, there’s been some discussion about the best head for crease attackmen, specifically for a new college player. There…
Here is a little video from Greg about breaking in your traditional pocket, and getting the leather to stretch, without getting too much whip on your wand!
This week, one hot topic has resurfaced that reminded us of a post from our own Krieg Shaw wrote earlier this year. This time though, a user has offered up a much simpler idea of just adopting the universal specs across all levels.
Doug Trettin is back with another killer traditional pocket, and this it’s a one of a kind prototype, called the EverPocket Zeroh (as in zero buttons!). If you’ve seen Doug’s older EverPockets, you know he is a button King.
Piotr Stalmach from Mesh Wizard in Poland has some awesome tips for stringing sticks, and this week, he’s showing us how to do the X-Up Top String for traditional sticks!
When James Pannell wasn’t coaching kids, or playing a vicious game of P-I-G against his brother, Rob, he was getting peppered by questions from yours truly. This time around I asked James about his custom UVA dye, his pocket, and how he and his classmates adjusted to the new college rules, including the 2010 heads, and 2013 stringing rules.
This week, one hot topic has been around one member’s issues with some leathers in his stick. He’s just not quite sure why they are messing up on him. Check out the post and a picture of his dilemma here.
This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!
Stylin’ Strings sat down with MLL and NLL star Kevin Crowley to talk lacrosse, stringing, and how/why Kevin decided to learn how to string his own wand.
From Krieg: My pocket is pretty specific to my stick, in that the head I use is wider than most, and really stiff. This makes it great to string with a deep channel, and keeps the head sturdy enough to not whip out when I shoot or pass.
This week, Forum Friday is all about the crosslace?
This week’s Traditional Thursday focuses on two new pockets Connor Wilson strung up, the Drop Top Traditional and the Double Traditional. Connor also answers some fantastic reader questions, and keep dropping that tradish knowledge!
Forum Friday goes “au naturale”!
Towards the end of the college season, work picked up to the point that I couldn’t string as much as I’d like to, but now that things are slowing down just a little bit, I’ve found the time to dial just a couple of sticks… here’s a look at some of the heads I’ve been stringing.
STX has long been established as a major brand in lacrosse and field hockey. The company also makes golf equipment. And now the Baltimore-based manufacturer is getting into hockey, with their own padding and sticks.
The College All Traditional Team is back for 2013 and better than EVER! More NCAA D1 lacrosse players using traditional means a bigger team. See who made this all-star squad for the 2013 season!
While in in Prague, CW had the pleasure of meeting Piotr Stalmach, of Mesh Wizard fame (based out of Poland), and Piotr graciously offered to create a new traditional top string video tutorial for us.
We review the H2 shaft from Maverik Lacrosse!
Last week Billy met up with a couple of guys from Throne of String, Cesar and Chris, and the three of us got the chance to hang out, and learn how to string traditional, down in Brooklyn, with the one and only Greg Rose of Zen, Lacrosse, and the Art of Stringing.
