Keep tabs on your throwing buddy in the dark with Glow Mesh. The secret coating that Frankie’s Custom Lax created from scratch, is very unique in the way it glows so bright in the dark. The coating also helps create a harder mesh. And best of all it adds a waterproof and grip texture just as if it were coated with wax. Read More…

Sadka Lacrosse Water Resistant Mesh

Mesh 1


This is a new wax mesh that is coming out (not from me, I don’t benefit in any way from this getting popular). It’s called Sadka mesh. They don’t have much publicity yet, but they have come out with an amazing wax mesh product. This mesh almost immediately provides the feel and consistency of broken in hard mesh that everyone loves, but with a unique wax coating that prevents bagging and other inconsistencies associated with playing in wet conditions.

Here’s another Reebok 10K, but with Jimalax Soft Mesh this time. With summer ball coming soon, there are a number of players that will be switching to soft mesh since rain is not an issue.

stringing-3


The head I strung is a Reebok 10K with Jimalax semi-hard mesh and all Jimalax materials. My goal was to string a pocket that almost anyone could use, without adjusting their throwing too much. It has a super smooth release with a bit of a snap, but it has phenomenal hold so you can really get some torque on shots. Read More…

Girls Lacrosse Sticks: The Vanishing Art of Stick Tuning

girl-lacrosse-stick


Buying a new stick is like getting a new baseball mitt – it needs to be properly broken in before it can be used effectively. Most players and parents don’t realize this, and we see many “tennis racquets” –new or restrung sticks that haven’t been adjusted – in our training sessions. The pocket of a girls stick must be adjusted to make it easier to catch, cradle, and throw while also conforming to the rules. Read More…
