Most will agree that StringKing lived up to the hype when they released the Metal and Metal Plus shafts before the holidays. I thought they were at the highest they could possibly want to go, until they teased “New Year, New Products” on Instagram. Shortly thereafter, we got our first glimpses of the Mark I and […]

Review: LAXe Handle



The way I’ve made my butt ends for years was by basically making a huge knob that would stop my index finder and my thumb as the rest of my bottom hand wrapped around it. I liked it because I felt like I could bring my top hand further down the shaft to have a […]
