I'm back with another "how-to" video, and this time around it's a traditional lacrosse pocket tutorial. This video focuses on the single string method of stringing or netting a traditional diamond leather lacrosse pocket. I used a matte grey Gait Recon XL Universal spec head from Gait Lacrosse, bright orange cross lace, white leathers, white sidewall, and four shooting strings. It's about as six diamond as a six diamond gets!

This week I thought I would mix it up a bit and throw together a top shooter tutorial. I got a lot of positive feedback on last week's photo tutorial so I'm sticking to it this week with a photo tutorial for a braided top shooting string. This shooter was introduced to me by the one and only Jeff Brunelle, and what I love about it is that the braided top shooter plays a lot like a dropped top string.

If you are a gear-head like myself, you will have noticed the latest top string trend sweeping the nation: The Chenango Top String! As far as we can tell, this top string was first created by Syracuse player Matt Pratt in his attempt to deal with and alter the four inch shooting string rule.

If you want to learn how to string a traditional pocket, you need to know how to properly string a traditional interlock around a leather. It's a seemingly tricky knot, but once you get it, it's actually quite simple. The above video shows you just how to do it... it's a time tested method!

Colton Raichl here to show you my way of stringing up a head. I have been stringing for about 4 years now. I have strung almost every head on my high school team, a few on my college team, and a couple more for anyone who comes in to the Bend Lax Shack during the summer!
