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)!
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. This time around I asked James about his custom UVA dye, his pocket, and how he and his classmates adjusted to the new college rules, including the 2010 heads, and 2013 stringing rules.
Stylin’ Strings sat down with MLL and NLL star Kevin Crowley to talk lacrosse, stringing, and how/why Kevin decided to learn how to string his own wand.
From Krieg: My pocket is pretty specific to my stick, in that the head I use is wider than most, and really stiff. This makes it great to string with a deep channel, and keeps the head sturdy enough to not whip out when I shoot or pass.
This week’s Reader Poll goes viral, which pocket is the best in the game?
One of the things I learned from Tufts Lacrosse Coach Mike Daly was how to do a simple test to tell if any player’s stick was holding them back.
“It’s not the wand, it’s the wizard” – Duff Goldman. Truer words could not have been spoken, especially when it comes to lacrosse. The problem comes when a new lacrosse player has a brand new stick with a horrendous factory pocket in it.
