Welcome back to traditional Thursday. This week, we’re seeing how low we can go. We’re talking 2 diamond trads and diamond size theory. Sometimes less is more…
I’m beginning to see this style shooting string pop up everywhere now, often at youth practices, and usually in neon colors for some reason… But I couldn’t ignore it any longer, especially now that our boy Ratzke hooked us up with a tutorial and in depth explanation on how it works. I decided to try […]
More great break-in advice from Greg Rose: The initial advice on breaking in the pocket is to make sure all the crosslace junctions secure around the leather and keep the diamonds even. To make sure of this, keep a careful eye on the diamonds as it breaks in and use your finger to scoot the […]
Welcome back to another awesome #traditionalthursday. This week, I answer a reader question from Jeffery Barber. He writes, I want to try a six-leather traditional in an Evo 4. It has the cut-outs in the scoop for six leathers, but only has four anchor holes in the throat of the head. Do you have any […]
Over the past few weeks we have been digging into what I call the “dropped top string.” Two weeks ago I strung up a Huron Top String and last week I showed you how to string a quick and easy Iroquois Top String. This week I’m teaming up with the one and only, big Billy […]
Welcome to another fantastic #TraditionalThursday! This week we’ve got a couple newly strung heads for you to check out, and a fun thing you can start doing with all of your excess string. Let’s get right to it!
Last week our Forum Friday was about what would to choose for a wooden shaft. This week, we’re continuing the wood theme, but moving on to lacrosse heads! It’s time to look at traditionally strung wood heads.
Welcome to an epic #TraditionalThursday post! This one is chock full of info, photos, tips, questions, and more. Buckle up the old leather seatbelt, tighten your sidewalls, and get that spool of cross lace ready!
This week’s Traditional Thursday is inspired by reading the first couple chapters of Greg Rose’ book and watching Connor Wilson’s tear drop top string tutorial. I’ve been stringing a ton of traditional pockets lately and haven’t really gotten the chance to string a mesh pocket. When I did decide to go back to mesh, I […]
Do you spend Thursdays looking through photos of traditional pockets that OTHER people have strung? Do you wish that you too could string a mean pocket using only leather and cross lace? Today is YOUR day to learn how to string traditional for yourself!
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!
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!
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 […]
Over the summer, I used a mesh stick with an Iroquois top string during the ULAX Liberty Cup tournament. It had a quick and snappy release, which I love. I wanted to replicate those same concepts into a traditional stick.
Stylin Strings made a trip to visit Alfie Jacques, up on the Onondaga lands, and their first video documenting the trip is slated to drop on the lacrosse world on Sunday, September 1st. This first video will cover Jacques’ motives for making wooden sticks, as well as the meaning of his art.
