Ten Minute Traditional: Pita

tenminutetradpitaface


Ten Minute Traditional created a pre-strung pocket with high-quality materials.    Ease of Stringing: 9/10 All you really need to know how to do are sidewalls and topstrings.

Burd Wood Works Lacrosse Sticks

IMG_3063

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 […]

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. […]

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. […]
