History of multicolor lacrosse mesh

The History of Multicolor Mesh: A Blue Collar Timeline

0 - Published September 10, 2014 by in BLUE COLLAR LAX, Featured, Gear, Mesh, Stringing

The following is the story behind the history of multicolor mesh, told in coordination with BC Lax co-owner Tim Weston. Blue Collar Lax is confident that multicolor Marc Mesh was the spark that led to all of the multicolor lacrosse heads we see today. They note, before Marc Mesh came out with multicolored netting there was only solid color stick heads offered by the manufacturers. Around 2010, a few manufacturers came out with some basic multicolor designs and they were obviously successful as we saw over half the heads available on the wall of a lacrosse store were multicolored by 2011.

String Your Own: Vertical Twist Top String

0 - Published May 20, 2014 by in Featured, Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

I started looking at old dropped top strings that I had strung up and then dove into the depths of the interwebs to see what other people had done up. I think that one issue I have had with stringing a dropped top string like an Iroquois Top String is getting the tension right. I came across a Vertical Twist Dropped Top String and decided I would do a tutorial on how I strung mine up.

Epoch Lacrosse, one of the best lax equipment companies in the country, is upping its game by introducing shafts made from the latest aerospace and military-grade composite materials, instead of aluminum or titanium. Not only are the sticks stronger, they’re lighter with a lower F.A.W. (Fiber Areal Weight) than other materials used.

One of our gifts to you this holiday season is a Buyer’s Guide for some of the hottest high performance, wax, dyed, and/or rubberized lacrosse mesh available. Every single piece of mesh on the market may not be included in the guide, but it covers the vast majority of the major players. At the same time, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other quality mesh pieces being put out by other companies out there too!

Know About Rubber Mesh?

In the past year or so, wax mesh has made a lot of noise and has gained a ton of support in the lacrosse world. But what about rubber mesh?

Top String Tuesday: Two Triangle Top String

0 - Published November 26, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

This week I’m sticking to the blue and orange theme that I went with in last week’s Braided Top Shooter. I love the triangle top string. I love the way it looks. I love the way it keeps the ball from hitting plastic and I love the fact that you get to use two different colored top strings to customize your pocket a bit. This week I decided to get a little tricky with what I am calling the Two Triangle Top String. The Two Triangle Top String is essentially the same thing as a triangle top string.

Top String Tuesday: Braided Top Shooter

This week I thought I would mix it up a bit and throw together a top shooter tutorial.
I got a lot of positive feedback on last week’s photo tutorial so I’m sticking to it this week with a photo tutorial for a braided top shooting string.  This shooter was introduced to me by the one and only Jeff Brunelle, and what I love about it is that the braided top shooter plays a lot like a dropped top string.

Top String Tuesday: AllSTAR Top String

0 - Published November 12, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

For this week’s Top String Tuesday, I wanted to bring you something special in honor of Veteran’s Day and the good ol’ US of A. Now, I can’t take credit for the creation of this top string. Our very own Michael Allen sent me a photo and suggested it may make a great TST… He was right, obviously, so I wanted to break it down through an easy to follow photo tutorial. I am a visual learner and felt that with the ins and outs of this top string it would be best to stay away from the video this week and just take you through step by step so that you can follow along at your own pace.
