Welcome to our new weekly series, Tuesday Tie Up! Each week, we will have a different lacrosse pro or personality talking about how they string up their head, and each post is brought to you by Epoch Lacrosse.
I am reminded heavily of the NCAA rule changes a little while back. The nervousness of the community was the same and the rule changes are potentially identical.I will get into the potentials in a moment. This should not be seen as a limitation, but rather another opportunity to let your creativity run wild. First, […]
It’s high time for Readers Questions Answered! You guys send in some excellent traditional lacrosse questions, and every once in a while we sift through some of the most intriguing comments and questions, and actually respond. I know, we should do this more often. Maybe we will!
A couple of months back, we put up a couple of tradmesh pockets photos on Instagram that I dubbed Trameshional. Perhaps that name is stupid, but I’d never seen this variation of tradmesh done before, even though I’m sure it has been. People asked for a tutorial, I took my sweet time in making one, […]
The Stanwick Lacrosse Camp is run down in Maryland, and we were lucky enough to get photos from the camp from Craig Chase. The early premise of this post focuses on the traditional sticks on display at the camp, but it quickly degenerates into Scott Rodgers doing bicep curls with campers, ice bucket challenges, and […]
Joe O’Neill, from Stringer’s Shack, owns one of the most amazing and rare old school lacrosse sticks that I have ever seen, and today we’re showing it off to you! It’s a special stick from Etobicoke Sports!
Why would one want to shave a wooden lacrosse stick? And how would you shave a wooden lacrosse stick? Here is how and why.
To get things going in Connor Versus again, we kept it local, and took on Joe Williams of Throne of String for Episode 4 of this ongoing series. We dueled it out lacrosse style on his rooftop in Brooklyn, used wooden sticks, and had a blast.
Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today’s post will focus on wooden lacrosse sticks, but there is so much more to say and see that a video was quite simply required.
Was there a lot of traditional at the World Lacrosse Championships? Yes there was, and I figured there would be at least a bit, but in the end there was WAY MORE TRADITIONAL than I thought there would be.
Recently Rochester native, Joe Walters, sent his unreleased Maverik Optik head to me and the guys at Throne of String for some tender loving care.
The Six Shooter Pocket tutorial has been long awaited, and requested many times over, and now… it’s finally here! The Six Shooter has been around for a long time, and while most people today know about it because Miles Thompson used this pocket last year at Albany, the pocket has been around for a long […]
Welcome to a Baby Oil Leather Traditional Thursday! Today I’m showing you how to weatherproof your leathers at home using the all important baby oil. It’s a tried and tested method, and I learned it from Jeremy Thompson, so you know it’s good. The genesis of this conversation followed an MLL game between the New York Lizards […]
I’m back with another “how-to” video, and this time around it’s a traditional lacrosse pocket tutorial. This video focuses on the single string method of stringing or netting a traditional diamond leather lacrosse pocket. I used a matte grey Gait Recon XL Universal spec head from Gait Lacrosse, bright orange cross lace, white leathers, white […]
I used goalie leathers from Stick Doctor as my four leather runners. I used the original cat gut sidewall, and was even able to salvage original leather from the pocket to re-attach the cat gut to the wooden wall. I then used about 26 feet of cross lace to string the tight ten-diamond pocket.
