Last week’s Traditional Thursday saw Connor Wilson’s take on Jeremy Thompson’s one-twist pita pocket. This week, I bring to you a throwback with my take on Jeremy Thompson’s pocket. When I strung this pocket up earlier this summer, I actually had no idea that Jeremy Thompson was using a similar set up. In fact, I had no idea who Jeremy Thompson even was (just kidding, obviously).
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)!
Colton Raichl with you again to show you his way of stringing up a Maverik Spider 17. Colton had never used a Spider before, and really likes the way it turned out. The shape of the head allows for a very nicely formed mesh pocket. Here is a tutorial.
Connor Wilson noticed that Jeremy Thompson was using an interesting one twist pita/traditional variation earlier this Summer in the MLL, and had to give it a shot and try to figure it out for himself. What do you think of his effort?
Colton Raichl here to show you my way of stringing up a head. I have been stringing for about 4 years now. I have strung almost every head on my high school team, a few on my college team, and a couple more for anyone who comes in to the Bend Lax Shack during the summer!
Tommy Gilligan is helping out at a yard sale today in New York, and he came across a true gem… an old plastic Brine goalie stick from Geneseo State!

This week, we’re looking at a post that was originally posted back in June, but has seen a few new responses in the past few days. The question is about breaking in hard mesh. Have any tips for our poster?
After many hours of exporting, and then uploading, and then processing, the 43 minute 43 second multiple string traditional tutorial is up and live. It’s in-depth, and there are helpful tips smattered throughout.
Stylin Strings sent over an LAS-themed mini stick, complete with a pita pocket, and I love that mini sticks are getting the traditional love.
This pocket is perfect for CW, and it is now his go-to style of stringing sticks. He used to use a V or U shooter, but since that’s no longer legal in college, CW had pretty much taken it out of how he strings sticks. Here is Connor Wilson’s perfect mesh lacrosse pocket stringing tutorial.
This week we look at the Pita Pocket, and how we can help a community member get the hold he wants in his pocket. Know how to help? Make sure to sound off in the community forum!
This week’s Traditional Thursday features a feat none of us at the LAS mothership have ever tried before: A Goalie Traditional.
Here is a little video from Greg about breaking in your traditional pocket, and getting the leather to stretch, without getting too much whip on your wand!
Doug Trettin is back with another killer traditional pocket, and this it’s a one of a kind prototype, called the EverPocket Zeroh (as in zero buttons!). If you’ve seen Doug’s older EverPockets, you know he is a button King.
