We did a couple of custom String League dye jobs and three of our five wonderful judges are involved in this project! At the end of the day, these heads could be yours, but ONLY if you get involved with String League, so make it happen!
Stylin Strings wanted to make the first String League Stick and Frank Stanley (Franky Fingers) set off to do so. Within the video below, you can see the task of custom vinyl masking. It is a meticulous and tedious skill that Frank has mastered after years and years in the SSLAX dye lab, and it’s well worth the effort, as these sticks came out amazing!
Color matching is also important when it comes to matching a dye design to an existing brand. The String League blue is a darkened powder blue that leans more towards neon blue than Carolina blue. Frank used some test pieces (made from old broken heads) and the new RIT Dye More series to get the color just right.

These sticks are being sent to Joe from Throne of String in Brooklyn NY, as well as Greg and the boys at East Coast Dyes down in Maryland. Stay tuned for more videos as these sticks get their final touches at these two top notch studios. It will be interesting to see how each of them turn out given the different stringing styles of each of these String League Judges! Both will be keepers for sure!
The two heads are likely to be used as giveaways to those who collect Skaggs’, Connor’s, Joe’s, and Greg’s autographs on their String League flyer at this year’s National Lacrosse Convention. #LAXCON! Details will be available on the @stringleague Instagram account so give SL a follow, and give yourself a chance to win some amazing swag from Stylin Strings, Throne of String, and East Coast Dyes!
