String League: Throne of String Week 1

Welcome to String League, lacrosse’s biggest stringing competition. Week one is meant to challenge and stretch competitors’ problem solving, and adaptability. Our first week of the finals belongs to Throne of String. Throne’s owner Joe gives us some background on his lacrosse company based out of Brooklyn, New York. This week’s challenge for contestants @Brostrings, @Laxisbae, @lacrosseman, oldratlax, @mclaxstrings is the Throne pocket. This is a highly complex four leather custom pocket invented by Joe involving an “O” channel, double interlocks, and contingent stringing. Entries will be judged on symmetry, pocket shape, tension, amd overall presentation by Chris, Throne of String’s lead stringer. Watch our weekly video installment on Stringleague.com and be sure to check out the leaderboard and root for your favorite stringer. We want to thank all of our sponsors The Lacrosse Network, Stylin Strings, Throne of String, East Coast Dyes, Encore Lacrosse, LAX Allstars, STX, and JimAlax.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
