In the past, old school players used to take showers with their sticks and massage in hair conditioner to their mesh to keep their mesh broken in and consistent. Now, new mesh technologies have come forward making pockets more consistent... but make no mistake.. you still need to take care of those pockets to be able to perform at the peak of your game.
Re-lax was engineered by a hair product specialty company and its effects on today's nylon mesh is amazing. Just spray both sides, quickly break the pocket in with a ball and rince off and let dry. Consistency in a bottle !!!! Don't let your backup stick get all dry and cracked and throwing balls 20 feet over peoples heads in games.... just buy some of this stuff and you are all set.
