Top String Tuesday: Two Triangle Top String

0 - Published November 26, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

This week I’m sticking to the blue and orange theme that I went with in last week’s Braided Top Shooter. I love the triangle top string. I love the way it looks. I love the way it keeps the ball from hitting plastic and I love the fact that you get to use two different colored top strings to customize your pocket a bit. This week I decided to get a little tricky with what I am calling the Two Triangle Top String. The Two Triangle Top String is essentially the same thing as a triangle top string.

Top String Tuesday: Braided Top Shooter

This week I thought I would mix it up a bit and throw together a top shooter tutorial.
I got a lot of positive feedback on last week’s photo tutorial so I’m sticking to it this week with a photo tutorial for a braided top shooting string.  This shooter was introduced to me by the one and only Jeff Brunelle, and what I love about it is that the braided top shooter plays a lot like a dropped top string.

Top String Tuesday: AllSTAR Top String

0 - Published November 12, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

For this week’s Top String Tuesday, I wanted to bring you something special in honor of Veteran’s Day and the good ol’ US of A. Now, I can’t take credit for the creation of this top string. Our very own Michael Allen sent me a photo and suggested it may make a great TST… He was right, obviously, so I wanted to break it down through an easy to follow photo tutorial. I am a visual learner and felt that with the ins and outs of this top string it would be best to stay away from the video this week and just take you through step by step so that you can follow along at your own pace.

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.

Triangle Top String

Top String Tuesday: Triangle Tutorial

0 - Published September 24, 2013 by in Mesh, Stringing, Tutorials

The Triangle Top String (TTS) is easily one of my favorite top stringing methods. It’s a slight spin-off of a typical 9-diamond top string, but I have found that it keeps the mesh tighter to the top of your lacrosse head, which really helps prevent the ball from hitting plastic.

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.

Video: Mesh Pocket Stringing by Krieg Shaw

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.
