Editor’s Note: This Independence Day also marks LaxAllStars.com’s 4th birthday, so we thought we’d do something special to celebrate the occasion. Read on to learn more about Throne of String’s limited edition mesh and find out how you can win a free kit today!
The Throne of String has been offering up custom mesh pieces each month, and for July, they went with a Limited Edition Independence Day piece of mesh. We love the red, white and blue, and when Joe from Throne of String dropped a piece off for me to check out, I just had to give it a shot.
I’m always looking for a good piece of waxed mesh, as they are all quite different, and my current mesh stick is an utter disaster. So before I get to the pictures and CONTEST (oh yeah, we’re giving a Throne Mesh kit away!), I’ll hit you with some information on the product itself.
Like almost every other waxed or treated mesh out there, Throne Mesh is soft mesh that has been treated with some sort of water-resistant mixture. This process transforms the mesh into a harder, stiffer piece, and ideally, it also avoids bagging out in the rain. For more on the water-resistant tendencies of waxed mesh, make sure you check out 24 Seven Lax’s exhaustive product review.
Throne Mesh didn’t exist back then, but I’m glad it does now. It’s not too waxy, and it’s not very sticky either. Out of the bag, it feels very similar to mid level stiffness mesh, but as I threw with it a bit, the Throne Mesh definitely softened up much faster. I’m interested to see how it holds up over a couple months, but so far all signs are good.
When it comes down to it, all I really want is a piece of semi-soft mesh that won’t bag out and won’t whip too severely, and I think that Throne Mesh could be my ticket to perfection when I’m not rocking traditional.
So now that you’ve had a small verbal taste of the product, let’s get to more photos and the contest!
