What We Think About Stuff: Traditional Stringing

Colin and Steve use traditional, they also created a blog. Steele Stanwick uses traditional. Does he have a blog?


A few words from Steve: Consistency, lightness, old school attitude. These are all of the great things that come from the use of traditional stringing. To be honest, I don't use traditional, I use a Pita Pocket. But it's all the same to me, I use four leathers and a ton of nylon. It seems that Steele and the other Stanwick's feel the same(see picture at right). I can't wait to string up my Shockwave with brown leathers, what's up Jeremy Thompson. On a side note, Is Virginia not the best looking team in Lacrosse right now? Unlimited uniform combos, Fully outfitted by Nike, Twins, Traditional stringing, The color orange, The color Navy Blue, Traditional stringing again.
A few words from Colin: Traditional for me, although I do prefer it to mesh for how it performs, is more of a lifestyle choice. I definitely wouldn't use a chrome head or a head made out of money, but, from someone still trying to look good out there, traditional gives me just the level of flash I need. My one issue...of which I truly only have one, is it's inability to use in the rain. I've seen Matt White and Steele Stanwick using theirs on "weathery" days, so, being that it's suppose to rain this weekend against Chapman, I'm hoping someone can offer advice as to what to do with traditional when its wet out there.

Definitely no ball in that stick

  1. If you have a back up traditional you can spray it with krylon weather guard before the game. it keeps some of the moisture out, but can stiffen that pocket right up on dry days. So use a back up traditional if you can spare one.
    Also, the more you stretch your leathers BEFORE putting the pocket in, the more rain resistant it is. I have started to stretch them 3 times to avoid sag in wetness.
