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…
Mike is a close friend of Epoch and he’s the son of legendary Flip Naumberg, where they work together running Rock-it Pocket.
Taking time and focus away from his busy booth at #LaxCon, Mike sat down with us to tie up The Hawk with Otter Mesh for today’s episode! Mike was influential in the the development of The Hawk, so he understands what the laid back profile does and that The Hawk is designed for a High Pocket.
Once we sat down and laid out the materials, Mike he knew exactly how he wanted to tie up The Hawk.
He takes a very simple approach to this pocket. His process starts by creating a great ten diamond top string before going right into the sidewall.
As you can see, Mike doubles up with the diamonds at the top of the head a couple times.
This instantly creates a high pocket leaving Mike to put in three straight shooters. Because of the way Mike ties up a high pocket, the ball rests in place directly under the last shooter.
Live. Play. Be.
