That pocket will still stretch a bit more.

There is a certain All-American longstick out there in NCAA lax land that will be converting to the light side this Spring and making the switch to traditional.  I was lucky enough to be asked to string his stick up for him and I think this could be a great gamer.  The stringing still needs to be broken in a bit more and then played with for hours but the infrastructure is there.  This is some solid work and I’m not even being cocky.  Just keeping it real.  I included some early process shots so you know how I get started.  Those of you with strong stringing capabilities will be able to tell what I did.  I left the ending a secret because for now, how I personally string traditional, will remain a closely guarded secret.  Can you figure out my tricks, and more importantly, why I use them?  Doubt it.

The only real mistake I made was that I cut the leather a little thin at the bottom for one of my crosslaces.  I put orange tape on it just to make aure it doesn’t wear more than it needs to.  With a little tape, it will hold up just fine.  By the end of their lives, a lot of traditional string jobs can benefit from some tape.  This one just got an early start.

I tie my crosslace down, then do the floating leather procedure seen in the finished photos above.

But that’s all you get for now!  Hopefully, Kevin McGuirl and Dan Willson will whip up some tutorials for ya ASAP!
