Our Pro Stringers at Lax.com’s have this professional advice so that your lacrosse stick is strung like a Pro.  They offer these tips as part of their elite level stringing tips that will dial your pocket down in the same way they string lacrosse heads up for the best high school and collegiate players in the nation.  Use these three simple tips to make a BIG difference in that way your pocket will perform, come game time.
 


 
 

1) It is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that your shooting strings are laying TOTALLY FLAT against your mesh for a smooth consistent release.  The shooters are the last piece of the pocket to get strung, and we see so many novices just whipping through the final stage and not taking the proper time to have those shooters un-twisted and flat against the mesh!

2) The tension of your shooting strings is crucial.  Keeping the tension in this part of the head somewhat loose for the best release.  As we discussed before, the best shooters setup is 2 shooter and 1 nylon at the top.  The looser the shooters the more whip and power generated from the later release.
 
3) The top string where the mesh meets the head – tie this first and make it as tight as possible without warping the head. The top string acts as the spine to the pocket.  A tight top string, tied correctly, will maintain durability and accuracy.  It also greatly eliminates the need to alter your pocket over time.
