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!
Today, Thursday July 25th, at 2pm Eastern Time, Connor will be hosting a Traditional Thursday Google Hangout LIVE with Contest Colin from The Lacrosse Network! To view the traditional talk session, just head on over to the LaxAllStars YouTube page and Subscribe!
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.
Piotr Stalmach from Mesh Wizard in Poland has some awesome tips for stringing sticks, and this week, he’s showing us how to do the X-Up Top String for traditional sticks!
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.
We’re back with a little more on Jeremy Thompson, as he’s been rocking a new traditional stick, and it’s got a Replaceable Top String!
This week, one hot topic has been around one member’s issues with some leathers in his stick. He’s just not quite sure why they are messing up on him. Check out the post and a picture of his dilemma here.
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!
