This week’s Forum Friday is awesome. So much of what we discuss as lacrosse players, especially in the LAS Community Forums, revolves around stringing. So why wouldn’t we want to get to know each other…through our stringing!
StylinStrings made the trek up to Syracuse, NY for the first ever Wooden Stick Expo. The SS guys put together a fantastic video showcasing some of the top notch stuff going down. Looks like it was one heck of an experience!
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!
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to talk Traditional stringing. This week, I explain how important proper spacing, tension, and break-in processes can be when you’ve just strung up a traditional stick. Get that pocket looking, throwing, and catching PERFECTLY… it’s Traditional Thursday!
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.
We wanted to thank the guys over at StylinStrings for putting up this video supporting our #StringItForward Membership campaign. They presented a great testimonial that shows how important stringing, and giving back to the greater community, can be.
We’re Talking Pockets today with LAS’ own Billy Nguyen, ChillLax Customs’ Nick Coyne, and Albany attackman Ty Thompson. We’ll see what each of these guys is looking for out of their pockets, and how they string their sticks. Hopefully, you’ll find something useful, which will help you string a better lacrosse stick!
Lacrosse is the Creator’s Game. There is so much more to it than X’s and O’s, and literally anyone can play. Every player, at some point, gets their own chance to create.
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.
If you are a gear-head like myself, you will have noticed the latest top string trend sweeping the nation: The Chenango Top String! As far as we can tell, this top string was first created by Syracuse player Matt Pratt in his attempt to deal with and alter the four inch shooting string rule.
When you transition from stringing high school legal pockets to NCAA legal pockets, it can take some time to figure out how to get it exactly how you want it. Luckily, the LAS Community is here to help.
Exciting news in the lacrosse world today, Rob Pannell signed with StringKing Lacrosse.
If you string a custom pocket with a TON of lockdown knots in it, your pocket won’t move much. Pita pockets, Heat pockets, and small diamond traditional pockets typically fall into this category. But wider pockets, like a five diamond traditional, or a Jeremy Thompson Replica pocket, can see knots that experience serious slippage. How can you fix the problem of Slipping Knots as the pocket breaks in?
