Burd Wood Works Lacrosse Sticks

IMG_3063


After getting to spend a few field days with Burd’s wooden attack shaft out here in sunny Southern California, I’ve come to love wooden handles. The Burd stick I’m testing doesn’t have the optional wax coating, which gave it a true old-school-style feel to the stick. It’s made from hickory, so you you can be darn […]

Mint Mesh Review

IMG_9641


The guys over at Mint Mesh challenged me to try a piece of their two-color candy cane pattern as well as a piece of their Mintaflague design (a type of digi-camo). The color lines are clean with no bleed and overall look fantastic as soon as you see them and even better when they’re strung-up. […]

Under Armour Spectre Rib Guards Review

UA_Rib


I’m a box guy, so it was my pleasure to put Under Armour’s Spectre Box Lacrosse Rib Guards (also called kidney pads) to the test during my current box lacrosse season.  These are the same rib guards that most NLL players are wearing. I tried them out in two box games for this review. The Spectre’s fit very nicely. […]

East Coast Dyes Hero Mesh Review

20151130_170422


In all sports, sporting equipment tends to follow a trend of increasingly better products being released from different companies. These products push the envelope, forcing every other company to one-up each other to make a better product. Lacrosse mesh represents the epitome of capitalism, and as the wax mesh trend fades out and better synthetic […]

StringKing Metal Review

SKMetal1


StringKing challenged both me and Rob to review their Metal shafts (here’s Rob’s take).  The Metal weighs in at only 130 grams, making it the lightest shaft on the market, and when I picked it up for the first time, I was shocked by how light it felt. Even after taping it up and putting […]

Grip ‘N Rip: Steele & Wells Stanwick

bigSandW-2


In a world controlled by the mesh industry, Under Armour pros Steele and Wells Stanwick have kept it old school throughout their entire lacrosse careers by using traditional-style pita pockets strung-up by their dad. I got a chance to talk sticks with the both of them and dig further into why they love traditional so much. Both […]
