Traditional Thursday: Brine Edge Pita

If you weren’t using a Brine Edge back in the late 90s and early 2000s people would look at you funny. It was the stick of sticks, the stick of kings, and the stick that everyone wanted to use. It was offset, had an open sidewall structure, and was basically the bomb diggity.

Traditional Thursday: Tom Garvey JHU & MAV

Tom Garvey gave me an older STX Proton+ from his days at Johns Hopkins and he wanted a pocket thrown in there so he could either use the stick while coaching or put it on display. I decided to up the ante a little bit and throw in a second head, which I dyed to resemble the Hopkins head in style, to commemorate his time playing for Maverik United in the LXM PRO.

Traditional Thursday: Woodie New Pocket

Lee Southren hooked me up with an old box lacrosse stick from the Mohawk Lacrosse Stick Manufacturing Company and since the pocket was a little beat up, I took it out and threw a brand new traditional pocket in there. It came out beautifully, and when I played wall ball with it yesterday.

The Best Traditional Leathers

0 - Published January 3, 2014 by in Stringing, Traditional

Traditional stringing has always been a big topic here at LAS, and this week’s Forum Friday is a question about the best leathers to use. This matter is clearly based on opinion, but with so many options these days, from Throne to East Coast Dyes to Jimalax and more, hearing testimonials from other players in the LAS Community is a huge blessing!

Traditional Thursday: Old Wood, New Life

I picked up an old Hattersley’s Viktoria (made in England) on Craigslist (thanks to Chris Tiernan for physically picking it up for me), and even though it’s a women’s stick, it was well worth putting a new men’s pocket in it to shoot around and use for coaching. Giving an old, well used stick a new life. Sounds like a job for Traditional Thursday.

Traditional Friday? Leather Pull Strings

0 - Published December 20, 2013 by in Stringing, Traditional

When you look at this lacrosse head I’ve strung up, you will notice that the bottom holes aren’t like any other lacrosse head. There are only 2 holes and the sidewall is so spaced out that you can’t really pull a leather through the last sidewall like you can with a STX Proton/Super Power. So I decided to use floating leathers in this pocket.

Traditional Thursday: Double Traditional

0 - Published December 12, 2013 by in Traditional

We’re getting weird this week on #traditionalthursday. We’ve seen Connor Wilson’s take on the double traditional in the past, but this week I took it literally and doubled up on the lace. Let’s get down on some leather and lace theory…
