What’s going on, people of LaxAllStars? Our buddies over at Jimalax sent me a couple slices of their spankin’ new Prime Mesh and what they are calling the Jimalax Prime Mesh System.
A little look back, Jimalax used to be the only game in town. They have one of the few looms that can make a particular type of mesh and they’ve been helping other countless companies bring their products to fruition. For a long time, they were behind a massive portion of mesh on the market, from any company.
What they wanted to do with this new system is bring an affordable and effective mesh system back on the market. Solid idea, I dig it. Just a few things to pay attention to…
First of all, they label the product as semi-soft, but to me it initially feels more like their semi-hard. It is going to be much harder than a semi-soft that you’re used to playing with. Jimalax is the originator of hard-mesh. So that isn’t so surprising. But, do keep in mind that this mesh will have a different feel from what you may assume semi-soft or semi-hard is.
Additionally, it did string incredibly well. As I was pulling things down to create this low pocket, everything set perfectly.
As an American-made product, I really do want to stand behind this. I’ve worked with Jim and Alex from Jimalax (Jim+Al+Lax…now you know!) for a very long time and I know personally they make things that they believe in. They stand behind their products.
If you guys want to string up your sticks and not go broke, this is a really solid option and a really solid product. I’m gonna go ahead and give this my approval.
If you guys have any experiences with the Jimalax Prime Mesh System, let me know in the comments and, of course, feel free to share your patterns.
Until next time, #GrowTheGame. Take care. Keep Laxin’.
