Connor Wilson takes a look at the Clutch Elite by Brine Lacrosse, and grades it on our ten point scale. It’s Gear Review time!
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!
We live in a world saturated by gear and material things – we are guilty of it too. But have people become so worried about what new gear a team is wearing that they have forgotten why we are playing lacrosse? I can’t help but think back to Dylan Sheridan’s article on toughness (I didn’t see gear listed anywhere in there) when this issue comes up.

Lance Gibson strung up a super clean 6-diamond traditional pocket in a brand new Brine Clutch Elite, sent the photos in, and even referred to it as a “Connor Pocket” because he used a tear drop top string.

As fashion around the world, and even in your closet, continues to trend in many different ways, I can still remember when I played lacrosse in the early 2000′s. Even back then it was all about looking good on the field because you wanted to stand out, but when it came to the lacrosse community and it’s size compared to now, it wasn’t even close to as big as it is now.
Do you have a traditional pocket that you love, but you worry that you will someday break the plastic head that it is in? And do you not use the traditional because of the 100% rational fear? If so, or if you have a broken stick with a great leather and lace pocket in it, have no fear! CW is here to show you how to move your traditional pocket from one head to another…
I created a new stringing tutorial on our YouTube page, and this time around I’m getting a little crazy, and teaching you how to string mesh! I know, anything but traditional from me is weird… but I played with mesh for years in college, and still know how to string a great pocket.
StringKing Lacrosse Performance Mesh has been sweeping the nation, from Matt Gibson, to Yale, to teams out West in California. Read on for the full review of StringKing mesh.
The Evolution head, no matter what number of surname has followed it, has remained popular amongst lacrosse players everywhere. We’ve seen countless iterations on the Evo, and now we get to check out the Evolution 4, which features some of the same, and a whole lot of new.
