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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Yesterday was a big day for StringKing Lacrosse with the release of Type 1s Lacrosse Mesh, a new product the company spent months engineering. StringKing touts that the softer construction of Type 1s Mesh allows a lacrosse player to be more aware of where the ball is sitting in his pocket during both the cradle […]
The Lacrosse All Stars #StringItForward campaign is off to a fast start. At our first clinic, in conjunction with Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership (LAS non-profit partner), we taught 35 young lacrosse players in Harlem how to string sticks and/or how to improve their pre-existing stringing abilities!
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 […]
Knowledge is power, and Greg Rose isn’t afraid to share his with you. Stringing Revolution delivers the ultimate foundation for stringing lacrosse sticks.
Another stringing question in the LAS Community Forum! This time, our poster wants to know your opinion on wax mesh. Is it worth it compared to hard mesh?
We caught up with Will Mangan of the Denver Outlaws last week to talk about his current pocket set up, what kind of head and mesh he uses, and who strings his sticks. Will goes in-depth on it all!
Here are some reasons why you would string a dropped top string types of pocket. You can take it or leave it, but its important to know how the pockets will impact your stick before you take the time to put one in.
A question popped up this week about the possibility of dyeing waxed. I’m no dye expert, but maybe you can help our poster out!
The Triangle Top String (TTS) is easily one of my favorite top stringing methods. It’s a slight spin-off of a typical 9-diamond top string, but I have found that it keeps the mesh tighter to the top of your lacrosse head, which really helps prevent the ball from hitting plastic.
Created as a potential solution to the new college lacrosse head and shooting string rules, the Chenango Top String causes a really tight channel and a natural “U” in your shooters.
An interesting question has popped up in the Forums, although the post itself doesn’t pose the same question as the title of the post. The title of the post is “How do you know when you need new mesh?”
Today, at 2PM ET, LaxAllStars will be hosting a LIVE Google Hangout on the subject of stringing, traditional, mesh, and how it can all impact your game! Our knowledgeable guests will include Greg Kenneally (of East Coast Dyes), Joe Williams (of Throne of String), and Justin Skaggs (of Stylin Strings)!
