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!

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.

Gear Review: Gonzo Mesh

We got a nice little package at LAS HQ a few weeks back with 4 preformed Gonzo Mesh pieces (2 white, 2 glow-in-the-dark). “Gonzo Mesh is a special coated mesh covered in a secret recipe of ingredients that makes it superior to traditional soft or hard mesh pieces in every aspect. Traditional mesh pieces bag out and become inconsistent and unusable in the elements. Wax mesh pieces tent to lost their wax coating in a rapid fashion.”

Traditional Thursday: Mesh Inspiration

0 - Published October 17, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Traditional

This week’s Traditional Thursday is inspired by reading the first couple chapters of  Greg Rose’ book and watching Connor Wilson’s tear drop top string tutorial. I’ve been stringing a ton of traditional pockets lately and haven’t really gotten the chance to string a mesh pocket. When I did decide to go back to mesh, I […]
