Editor’s Note: Welcome back to Tuesday Tie Up from Epoch Lacrosse! Each week, we feature a guest lacrosse personality to help you see how the big guns string their heads. You’re sure to learn a thing or two, so pay attention! We’ll let Epoch take it from here…
Setting a Tie Up Tuesday record, Salty Strings is back for not a second, but a third visit after sending Epoch another unbelievable custom pocket.
Tim Roche from Salty Strings is the creator of this pocket called the Paracord Pocket. We have seen pictures of this head before, but when receiving this head in the mail, we were blown away by how incredible it looked.
Tim has been stringing heads since he was about 10 years old and through all of his experience claims that this type of pocket is one of the toughest he has ever had to string. The different combinations strings allows you to achieve a unique feel on the ball.
Tim uses black sidewall string, white and green crosslace, and white shooting string to tie up The Hawk. This Paracord Pocket sits nicely near the top of the head, suiting nicely with The Hawk’s High Pocket design.
The interlock seem like a nightmare to string, but Tim nails the pattern and the colors for a clean design. From every detail of this pocket, including the large unique tail, this pocket is outside the norm.
You can learn more about the crafting of this pocket by checking out our first Tie Up with Salty Strings!
