Although I played in goal, I always had a small stick to throw around with, usually with my good buddy, Ed. My first stick was a middie stick cut to attack length. Meh — not a very good stick. Later, with this example of mediocrity as my guide, I chose a really beautiful attack stick from the lot my coach brought back from the East. Somewhere along the line, I lost it.
For this episode of Stylin Strings Lax County Choppers, the team at Stylin Strings got a call from the manufacturer Harrow with an idea that could make custom dyeing history. Dye 100 heads in 3 weeks! Stylin’ Strings and Harrow had worked together years before on a big pocket order but this request was a volcano in proportion.
My pal, Jason, emailed me a while back requesting a new batch of East Coast Conditioning heads dyed and strung up. Here are four of the six.
Our friends at Lacrosse Unlimited have been stringing and dyeing some insane sticks lately. The managers at their brick and mortar stores are gurus to say the least especially Mike Doino. He has kindly taken the time to elaborate on some of their recent work.
This past weekend I was given a fresh new Chrome head courtesy of @Smittylax and I was able to produce this beauty. It was originally a straight Chrome Evo Pro 2.0 and now its a work of art.
For this episode of Lax County Choppers the guys at Stylin Strings trick out their first pro sponsored stick. Jake Byrne won 2 national championships at Hopkins and now plays on the LXM Pro tour. Jake contacted SS with an idea of an Irish theme with an inside out type dye.
A goalie came to me asking to dye his Brine Money goalie stick with a tiger stripe theme. He wanted the colors on the head to be Orange and Black and I immediately had the final product pre visualized in my head. I wanted a Bright Orange underneath a Dark Black. This dye job is fairly simple, with a ferocious outcome!
