This week’s Traditional Thursday focuses on two new pockets I strung up, the Drop Top Traditional and the Double Traditional. I also answer some fantastic reader questions, and keep dropping that tradish knowledge!

  • Keep the videos coming! I really love the look of the Double Traditional. I just wish I had some spare heads to string one. Thursday are the best day of the week!

  • I tried the 6 leather trad and it had a different feel and the string as leather didn’t give my stick any whip but I figured out a really nice pocket I just strung up

  • The double trad is awesome. Looks like it allows for a more defined channel which definitely helps. Might have to five this a try on my next head.

  • hey Connor how can I tighten my strings in a pita pocket after I’m all finished to keep the ball from hooking off the scoop?

    I know you asked Connor but I think I know what could help. You want to graduate your shooters so that the top shooter is quite taut, not tight, but taut (quoting Connor on that one). Your next shooter should be about medium tautness, while the bottom one should be pretty loose but still attached to the head well.

    Check out this tutorial that Connor did a while back it helped me avoid this problem:

    Also check out this video and skip to 5:23. Your question is basically answered here as well:
