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.

Thanks to Billy Nguyen and Joel Taliento for the help!

  • It’s an old post but I’m hopefully you’ll be able to respond. I have the same stick that I used when I played years ago. Now my daughter is playing and I need to restring mine. I’m finding it hard to find the right leathers. Are you able to help out on a suggestion on where to buy them? Thanks so much.
