Stick Stringing

pros of a well-strung stick


  • Accuracy - Passing and Shooting
  • Consistency - No need to break it in every time you play!
  • Improved stick handling
  • Customization - Tell us how you want your pocket and we'll make it happen. 

cons of a poorly strung stick


  • Factory pockets - Factory strung sticks are NOT ready for game play.  You need a pocket to play this game...not a tennis racket
  • Inaccurate pockets - "Whip" makes the ball throw down.  Too many kids these days are playing with whip in their sticks. Rather than finishing a shot or an assist, they throw the ball to the ground. You can't be a good player if you can't get the ball out of your stick!

the mesh we use

We will be using JimaLax semi-hard mesh on your head.  Hard mesh takes a long time to break in and soft mesh can "bag" out.  Jimalax mesh will form a perfect pocket that will stay consistent.
