Top String Tuesday: Triangle Tutorial

Triangle Top String

Editor’s Note: Welcome back to another Top String Tuesday! The top string plays an integral role in the durability and effectiveness of every lacrosse player’s pocket, and we aim to showcase the many possibilities that exist. If you’re an avid stringer, always giving each string job your own creative twist, we’d love to hear from you. Drop us a line if you’re interested in being featured in our stringing section!

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.

In addition to giving you a chance to customize your pocket a bit with two different variations, the Triangle Top String is actually rather easy to setup. Check out my stringing tutorial below. If you have any questions, or if you have a TTS that you think is worth showing off, let us know in the comment section!

Editor’s Note: Tell me you didn’t laugh the first time the dog’s head pops up behind Ratzke!
