Editor’s Note: When someone comes out with a new product, and it’s awesome, it deserves a showcase… The TWIG is now that product. Handcrafted, made for a reason, and slightly different from what already exists. Justin Skaggs of WoodLacrosseSticks.com has really impressed us with this idea, and we’re all in on it. Learn more about the soon to be legendary TWIG, below, directly from Justin.
The TWIG is something that came from my imagination. I had a looming trip to India, and I wanted to bring a stick with me. The 32 inch design was made to fit both hands comfortably without sacrificing the full stick feel.
Introducing The TWIG – A New Wooden Stick
The other main point of focus was the head width. I always feel that if a stick cannot hold a full sized ball, then it is not worth having. This is why we made a 4 inch wide opening, and modeled the frame after a box stick.
This is not a toy, so please do not leave it on your wall to collect dust next to you tee-ball trophies. These are strung with real bison hide gut wall, leathers, and bootlace. I wanted this to feel as authentic as possible.
The TWIG is not bent using the same methods as a full sized stick. I employ methods used in construction of wooden boats to bend the smaller pieces, which allows me to be more resourceful and less wasteful when consuming raw wood.
The TWIG is available on www.WoodLacrosseSticks.com and are eligible for engraving. You can use the code LAXALLSTARS for $10.00 off of your stick. Please feel free to contact me with ways to improve these short sticks, as I am always looking be bring the quality up on everything I make.
Ok, we’re in. These sound awesome already, and like they will improve over time. When’s our next trip? When’s our TWIG arriving? Thanks to Justin for pushing boundaries and keeping the history of the game alive!
