Stringing with Boomer: Double Sidewall for Field Heads



Lax.com's stringing guru is back with some tips, tweaks, and techniques for lacing up the perfect pocket.

In this video, Boomer installs a double-sidewall into a regular field head, similar to the double sidewall he showed in an earlier goalie stringing tutorial. In a regular stick, the double sidewall helps pinch the pocket, giving you more of a channel for release, and a tighter hold on the ball.

Be patient when loading the video; it is a long tutorial.

you have to do is string the second sidewall on the outside of the plastic rather than on the inside. You just do the opposite with the sidewall string.

I know where you get the sidewall strings, but where the heck is he getting laces for the bottom? Did he just cut them off a spool? Because i'm about to restring my sticks sidewalls and bottom and I don't need a 100 yard spool of string for one stick.

He uses sidewall strings for the bottom lace, as well. All the laces he uses are tipped like a shoe lace. Depending on how you do your bottom lace you can get at least two heads done with one string. Total you need 3 1/2 strings (top, sides and bottom) for a head.

just tried this on my new Maverik Vision and am extremely pleased with it! Just one question: After completing the stringing, there is tons of excess lace and strings hanging off of my head, is there a way to get rid of that?? (cutting with scissors, etc.)

Cut it with scissors to about an inch long, then get a lighter n melt the end of it so it doesnt fray

heads are the most popular so a tutorial on how to do the sidewalls bottom and shooters would be good but the top should be standard (Y)
