Resident stringing expert from Universal Lacrosse, Chris Deal broke away from the madness at the 2015 Final Four weekend to tie up The Hawk with Otter Mesh with the Epoch Lacrosse crew!

We had the pleasure of filming Chris, a true veteran when it comes to tying up heads, by putting him on the spot in front of hundreds of young and impressionable fans.

Chris ties up a ton a different style of pockets on a regular basis for Universal Lacrosse so choosing just one style to go with in front of a growing audience was likely no easy task.

For this Tie Up Tuesday, Chris went with high pocket design with a little whip to show off the finer points of The Hawk design. Keeping the color scheme nice and clean, Chris accented the all-white Otter Mesh with light grey sidewall, top and shooting strings.

During the tie up session the crowd grew and grew, giving Chris a serious audience in front of the Universal Lacrosse merchandise tent.

Chris finished the brand new pearl and check it over thoroughly before passing it off to Zack Dorn for final approval.
