Top String Tuesday: Triangle Tutorial

0 - Published September 24, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

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.

When James Pannell wasn’t coaching kids, or playing a vicious game of P-I-G against his brother, Rob, he was getting peppered by questions from yours truly.

Video: Mesh Pocket Stringing by Krieg Shaw
