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.
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.
