not the best way to do this

first, his sidewalls are extremely loose, making the pocket less consistent. if you interlock all the way down, you get a very consistent pocket and tight channel, making it less dependent on the second string.

im not shooting this video down or anything, but just saying that theres a better and easier way to making a good channel.

Haters!

“First” - I don’t think this is a sidewall tutorial.

How can you hate on Rabil? As long as has he keeps ballen the way he does, the dude could wear his hair in a reverse Mohawk and people shouldn’t care.

Thank you Lax.com for another great tutorial. I also use this method, but I call it my cheat-string. What this extra string is doing, is moving/pinches your pocket more towards the center of the mesh. Also, when this string is pulled tight, it helps by griping the ball and channels it for a more accurate toss.
