Grip ‘N Rip: Max Seibald, Boston Cannons

max seibald


Recently someone asked me if I had to pick an All-Star lacrosse team, who would be on the first midfield line. The first guy I picked was Max Seibald, without hesitation. Max embodies the fundamental two way midfielder. He is so unbelievably fast and strong that it is really difficult to count him out of […]

Grip ‘N Rip: Zack Greer, Saskatchewan Rush

When I write these little paragraphs describing the accolades of players featured, I normally start by looking at what their respective universities have to say about them. The process was no different when I started writing Zack Greer’s article, but after a quick glance of his three years at Duke University, this might be a […]

That hair tho'. Image courtesy: Charlotte Hounds


New York Lizards midfielder Jake Tripucka is the definition of a work horse. He’s the two way midfielder that every coach wants on their team so they can provide quick transition from defense to offense and attack right away. Jake did this exceptionally well and his 47 goals, 48 assists, 74 ground balls, and 16 […]

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 […]

StringKing Metal Review

SKMetal1


StringKing challenged both me and Rob to review their Metal shafts (here’s Rob’s take).  The Metal weighs in at only 130 grams, making it the lightest shaft on the market, and when I picked it up for the first time, I was shocked by how light it felt. Even after taping it up and putting […]

Firethreads – Stringers Pack & GripPrint Review

firethreads1


I was always skeptical about “performance strings,” never thinking they really made a difference compared to regular sidewall/shooting strings. So when a learned about Firethreads and their rubber grip print on them, I thought they could be just for show. Lorne at Firethreads got a hold of Lacrosse Playground and challenged me to try their Stringers Pack: The Stringers Pack includes […]

String King Metal Plus Review

skshaft3_


String King gives us a handle a little thicker than the Metal but still lighter that just about everything else that is on the market. There may be a couple new shafts coming out that could be a gram or two lighter but, by last years numbers, it’s only number two to the Metal.   […]
