Traditional Thursday: Lance Gibson’s Connor Pocket


Lance Gibson strung up a super clean 6-diamond traditional pocket in a brand new Brine Clutch Elite, sent the photos in, and even referred to it as a “Connor Pocket” because he used a tear drop top string. I am honored that anyone would name their traditional work after me, but when a stringer of Lance’s quality does it? It’s a pure compliment! Thanks LG!

I learned that Lance strings his pockets around the pocket stretcher, and I think that’s a great move. It allows for perfect pocket placement, but creates a wider area than a ball and butter knife would. You should give that a shot too. I might the next time I string up a wand.
