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 play 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 can use the mesh of your choice to string your stick. If you are looking for pointers, our favorite mesh to string with is StringKing, as it is the most consistent mesh that forms the perfect pocket. Hard mesh takes a long time to break in and soft mesh can "bag" out.  StringKing mesh finds the middle ground between these two for the ideal pocket.


Every Stick is Strung Custom at New Wave: Pricing for your Stick Stringing will depend on factors such as mesh, head, style, & technique. We offer both Boys & Girls Stick Stringing Services for all types of sticks.
