Digital Camouflage Dye by Max McCool

digi-camo-dye


The Digital Camo dye job has been a long time coming for me. It has been done before by patient people with steady hands. I wanted to do my own take on it, and it took me a long time to do it exactly how I wanted to. To begin, I created a design on the computer in the shapes of various digital camo pieces. Read More…

McCool Does the Digi-Camo



I’ve seen a few different digital camouflage dye jobs recently, including the awesome Boston Cannons one done by Sebastian Olsen last week. It motivated me to post the pictures I had of a dye job I began in June of last year. This is my take on the Digi-Camo dye.

Tufts Dye Tutorial

Tufts Dye Tutorial



In honor of the 2010 Division III National Champion Tufts Jumbos, I dyed this head as a gift to their coach. The alumnus that approached me had an idea for a head that would stand as a memorial to this year’s team. We began with a lot of information, and it took a bit of time to figure out exactly what would and wouldn’t fit on the head. The finished product includes all of the coaches, captains, All-Americans, and the year’s motto as well as the Jumbo’s logo.

Mohawk Topstring

Mohawk Topstring



The Mohawk topstring is another version of the Iroquois topstring that is used by a lot of guys at Onandaga. The Thompson brothers are the two names that keep coming up as the inventors here, so guys, thanks for leading the way. This time around I have yet another way to string your mesh topstring, and I call it the Mohawk. Like the others, this topstring is perfect for attackmen that want a super quick release and no whip. The one that I have strung is made to be a low but fast pocket, however as a middie I don’t think that I could play with this because of the release point. Anyway, on to the part you’re really here for.

Huron Topstring



It’s summer time, giving us a lot more time at the pool, and a lot more free time to string up some sticks. This week, I combined the two, giving you yet another way to string up your top strings. A lot of questions came in on the Choctaw, and this week I can answer them.

Talon Tribute x Woodgrain



The only ones who can pull off a Woodgrain dye other than our own Max McCool is Talon Lacrosse. The NCAA and NFHS legal head is already available in Black and White so expect the Woodgrain hitting a local retail store near you this summer.
