Traditional Thursday: Two Leather Pockets

0 - Published April 17, 2014 by in Stringing, Traditional

A few weeks back, Connor dropped a Metrik ton of traditional on us. His use of box knots and his variations on some pretty traditional… well traditional pockets, got me thinking about stringing up a new pocket for myself. I just so happened to have a Proton Power laying around so I went about twisting something up.

Traditional Thursday: The ‘S’ Flair Pocket

I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do, but I wanted to add on another color of cross lace, and do something a little weird and wacky, for no other reason than to have fun. I ended up producing the first ever (as far as I know) ‘S’ Flair Pocket!

Traditional Thursday: Paracord… WHY?

I strung up a standard 8 diamond traditional pocket in this Maverik Metrik and used Paracord. Then I went to play some wall ball with it. How was it different from a regular traditional pocket? Would I recommend trying Paracord in your next pocket?

Traditional Thursday: Metrik Ton Of Traditional

LAS Partner, Maverik Lacrosse, was nice enough to hook me up with a couple of their new Metrik heads to string up and I have to be honest… I’m loving how these heads string up! Whether it’s mesh or leathers, it’s an easy head to string and the Universal face shape is definitely a favorite of mine already.

Traditional Thursday: Cross-Gender Pocket

I recently strung up a bunch of women’s sticks for some local girls in NYC and Ted Glynn. Instead of throwing out the center track, I recycled it and experimented with it in a men’s lacrosse head.

Traditional Thursday: Brine Edge Pita

If you weren’t using a Brine Edge back in the late 90s and early 2000s people would look at you funny. It was the stick of sticks, the stick of kings, and the stick that everyone wanted to use. It was offset, had an open sidewall structure, and was basically the bomb diggity.

Traditional Thursday: Tom Garvey JHU & MAV

Tom Garvey gave me an older STX Proton+ from his days at Johns Hopkins and he wanted a pocket thrown in there so he could either use the stick while coaching or put it on display. I decided to up the ante a little bit and throw in a second head, which I dyed to resemble the Hopkins head in style, to commemorate his time playing for Maverik United in the LXM PRO.


Traditional Thursday: College Legal Pita

Talking college legal pita pockets! If you want to use traditional in college, the best way to do it is to string a low pocket with your leather and cross lace, and then let the pocket move up in the head as it breaks in.

Traditional Thursday: Woodie New Pocket

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.

Is There Such Thing As A “Perfect Pocket?”

0 - Published January 10, 2014 by in Stringing

Is there such thing as a “perfect pocket?” That’s the question that has arisen in this week’s Forum Friday. The poster really wants to know what the characteristics of a perfect pocket are, so we would have to assume that they think there is such thing as a perfect pocket. However, instead of a pocket that is perfect in terms of working for everyone, I think the question may be looking for more general qualities.
