Today, we’re bringing you a long-awaited tutorial from the wood shop. Even more requested than the Leather Ball video. This is the Ball Stop Tutorial!
For a while now, people have been asking us to explain the best way to create a Ball Stop in your Wood Lacrosse Stick pocket, so Rich is here to give you a step by step walkthrough as he uses our standard bootlace to form a perfect ball stop:
To start, you’ll need six extra feet of lace, which does not come standard in our stringing kit. When stringing, a good tip would be to make sure the ends of your lace aren’t frayed, so use a lighter or matches to melt the ends, making them easier to lace throughout the stick.
In addition, make sure you have scissors handy in case you need to shorten your string before you begin.
Also, make sure the coils that you make on the ball stop aren’t too tight, so you can still twist them once it’s time to insert the lace through.
For an exact explanation of the entire process, be sure to watch the video above!
I’m really happy to bring you guys some brand new at-home tips from the Wood Lacrosse Sticks wood shop. Because of the current situation, we’ll be bringing out plenty of tutorials that you can do from home, so make sure to keep following Wood Lacrosse Sticks and Lax All Stars on social media.
If you’d like, post your ball stops and tag us at @woodlaxsticks. Until then, this is Justin Skaggs from Skaggs Wood Works and Wood Lacrosse Sticks. Take care and keep LAXin’.
