  • The benefit to traditionals for faceoff is that the pocket pops in and out much easier than hard/dura/wax mesh, and the construction makes it less likely to get caught in the back of the head. The downside is that fogos usually are the worst offenders for broken sticks which means it means you’ll have to restring it constantly or use the tear drop top string.
