Take It Easy…

Happy holidays laxers and lax lovers.  I am writing this post to remind you all to remember the little things because, sometimes, they mean so much.  When stringing a stick, it’s all in the deets (Urban Dictionary translation: details).  Not to say that my upcoming bit of stringing advice means everything, anything, or even the most; I would just like to point out that sometimes something like a knot or the slightest change in tension can impact a stick tremendously.  Find your area of issue, adjust, try it out, and repeat sequence if necessary.

Here’s a knot I use to keep a crosslace or a sidewall string from pulling through a hole in the head.  It is quite annoying to try to tie a knot with a sidewall string cut too short at the top after it pulls through – UGH.  Check this out:

Learning some of these minuscule yet useful tools of the trade comes from the “better safe than sorry” module — something like doubling up your top string is another example of preventative stringing tactic.

Keep laxing and learning.  More updates on scheduling, more pics, and more fun coming to www.roseschoolofstringing.wordpress.com and registration almost set up on www.roseschoolofstringing.com.  Have a happy and safe NYE so you can all do your thing in 2011!

Lacrosse Playground

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.
