Brent Adams who works here.. yes the one on Rabil's line with the Cannons.. strung up his whip with this and said he is never playing with anything else again. If you know how to shoot, this stuff literally rips the ball like no other, and it is consistent. It feels like soft mesh but without the whip.. if that is even possible. Science seems to have won the day here. We don't know how or why this stuff works, or the fact that the Navy SEALS use the same stuff in their helicopter ropes.. all we know is this stuff just revolutionized pockets forever.
We also know this stuff costs $40 beans a piece.. but considering what you spent on all that other gear and travel and time you have put in... whats $40 more for a perfect pocket. Let's face it - if your pocket sucks... so do you.

I've been stringing sticks and playing lax for 20 years! Even though this mesh is a lil pricey, it's well worth the cost! If u want to play at your top level, your stick has to be tuned in at the best level. If your a soft mesh guy, this is what u want! Trust me, you won't care u spent $40 when ur stinging corners with a proper mesh piece that strings a perfect pocket! The fact that it doesn't get dirty is just a bonus!

Personally I've used this, Stringking 2X and Stringking 2S and I love all 3. Don't get me wrong East Coast Dyes and Throne of String are great and I've used their products as well but Stringking/Epoch just feel different, a good different.

the one thing epoch does best is create overly expensive products. but their products are worth the money, so.....

Just gave in after months of thinking it was too much I've had it for about a week and its worth it, its so durable and doesn't get dirty at all, its the best mesh I've used and Iv'e used ECM, Jimawax Marc-mesh throne mesh and string king mesh. Although string king 1s is a cheaper alternative its similar but less durable.

Good doesn't get dirty easily I play in dirt/grass but it has barely turned brown. Strong stuff had it for 8 months. got ECM a while ago only lasted 2 months. This stuff will last longer than all your other meshes and that's why it's expensive but really quality stuff. Get this or string king

Ripping after 4 weeks sounds strange... I have had Otter in both my sticks for 4 months now and it is in perfect condition. If I were you I would contact Epoch or StirngKing and they should replace it for you. Sounds like you may have had a defective piece

Great stuff, but it ripped in less than 4 weeks.... Used it properly, if anything I handled it with extra care. Maybe I got a faulty mesh. Hopefully I'm not dissappointed again.

This mesh isn't all bad my friend has it and in md we have had so much rain and it feels like new its $40 and it may seem pricey well its not. what about the people spending $40 on dyed pieces of mesh which are bound to get real dirty real fast those meshes aren't like otter mesh its actually great stuff. also look its sold out i don't see other meshes that are sold out

To everyone bashing otter mesh because of the price, although the mesh is $40 it is worth every penny. The mesh will outlast any other mesh. It is the same thing as buying 4 or 5 pieces of any other mesh while otter mesh is still holding up. So think before you post.

Otter Mesh is more than light. It strings a perfect pocket every time. I strung it up in a Stallion and it throws SICK! It is soft and has a ton of feel. Trying it out on a snowy field later today at practice. I will let you know if water has any effect.

which is harder this or stringking 1x mesh

I hope there aren't any crazy people buying this mesh. You can buy 10 pieces of normal hard mesh.

Mesh hoarding is a serious problem, haven't you watched TLC before? I don't get this argument because you can only play with 1 piece of mesh at a time... Why buy 2 or 10 crappy pieces of mesh when your gamer only needs 1?
| - Providence8 12/27/14 reply|
yeah but this piece will outlast 10 pieces of hard mesh and it will be lighter and better hold
