This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!
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 Traditional Thursday focuses on two new pockets Connor Wilson strung up, the Drop Top Traditional and the Double Traditional. Connor also answers some fantastic reader questions, and keep dropping that tradish knowledge!
Towards the end of the college season, work picked up to the point that I couldn’t string as much as I’d like to, but now that things are slowing down just a little bit, I’ve found the time to dial just a couple of sticks… here’s a look at some of the heads I’ve been stringing.
The College All Traditional Team is back for 2013 and better than EVER! More NCAA D1 lacrosse players using traditional means a bigger team. See who made this all-star squad for the 2013 season!
While in in Prague, CW had the pleasure of meeting Piotr Stalmach, of Mesh Wizard fame (based out of Poland), and Piotr graciously offered to create a new traditional top string video tutorial for us.
Last week Billy met up with a couple of guys from Throne of String, Cesar and Chris, and the three of us got the chance to hang out, and learn how to string traditional, down in Brooklyn, with the one and only Greg Rose of Zen, Lacrosse, and the Art of Stringing.
Lance Gibson strung up a super clean 6-diamond traditional pocket in a brand new Brine Clutch Elite, sent the photos in, and even referred to it as a “Connor Pocket” because he used a tear drop top string. I am honored that anyone would name their traditional work after me, but when a stringer of Lance’s quality does it? It’s a pure compliment!
Do you have a traditional pocket that you love, but you worry that you will someday break the plastic head that it is in? And do you not use the traditional because of the 100% rational fear? If so, or if you have a broken stick with a great leather and lace pocket in it, have no fear! CW is here to show you how to move your traditional pocket from one head to another…
I created a new stringing tutorial on our YouTube page, and this time around I’m getting a little crazy, and teaching you how to string mesh! I know, anything but traditional from me is weird… but I played with mesh for years in college, and still know how to string a great pocket.
Welcome back to Traditional Thursday! This week we’re coming at you from Columbus, Ohio. Billy Nguyen was fortunate enough to hang out and talk about traditional pockets with Steele Stanwick at the Midwest Lacrosse store last weekend.
Last week I filmed a bunch of MLL guys training for the 2013 season. After it was all said and done, I got the opportunity to speak with Ari Sussman of the Boston Cannons, and we hit up the topic of traditional stringing because, well, what the heck else would we talk about?
StringKings recently dropped a new website on the world, and part of that website has been articles on lacrosse stuff. Their post on Traditional Stringing is a clear piece of troll bait, but I’ll bite on it, because I’m a sucker for stuff like that.
This week’s Reader Poll goes viral, which pocket is the best in the game?
