Stringking 4X is favored by feeders, inside shooters, and those that want the quickest releases in lacrosse. Deadly in the hands of an attackman strung with a lower pocket. Stringking 4S is the choice of elite outside middies and defensemen who want more hold and bigger bags in their upper and mid style pockets. This newly-released mesh will immediately up the game of advanced youth players as well.

The Stringking 4F mesh ket is made with their best selling Tri-twist patters that gives better grip on the ball and weighs only 14 grams. The kit also comes with everything you need ( including premium shooters and sidewalls ) to dial up that perfect face off pocket. Game balls really stick to this mesh and it feels like the new weave is really grabbing on to the new rubber. This 4F is specifically made for face off guys that want that "stickyness" feel on the clamp. Also be sure to check out the Mark 2F face off head described below.The new Stringking Mark 2F head is the latest in a series of elite level face off heads specifically designed for two main advantages... increased ball control area on the clamp and a kinder scoop angle for handling ground balls. The first thing you will notice on the Stringking 2F is the elongated throat. Stringking pulled the narrow channel of the throat shape up as high as possible to create the maximum channel and pocket surface area for controlling the ball. As all good FOGOs are aware, its not just the battle for the quick clamp.. its the battle for real estate along the line that counts too. As players push up into the scoop of an opponents scoop with their glove, the head of the stick slides a bit down the line.The extra length in the throat adds a big advantage as the ball gets caught up in that long channel rather than up towards the opponents scoop. In the old days, FOGOs used to bake their heads and then reform them to match these longer throat designs. Stringking has now taken that concept and worked it in with a massive number of string holes, that offer guys who know how to string even greater advantage depending on where and how they secure those knots.The scoop has a steeper angle which also channels the ball into the sweet spot quicker. These heads also can come strung with the new Stringking 2F mesh which is soft and weighs in at only 14 grams.

ECD Lacrosse Hero 2.0 Lacrosse Mesh

ECD Hero Striker Mesh 2.0 is still a great lacrosse mesh option for age groups. Over the past couple of years, this has been our pro stringers favorite mesh and even though there is the new Hero 3.0, this is still a viable option for all players. Some players may simply want to stick with the mesh that they know and love and you can save a couple of bucks on the 2.0, so it's great for youth players upgrading their pocket or guys just learning to string themselves. The story here is the ability to weave two types of fibers into the core of the mesh. This produces a softer channel and more rigid sides of the mesh for an optimal release runway that literally rockets the ball out of the pocket while shooting but produces more hold and feel while cradling and ball handling.

ECD Hero Striker Mesh 2.0 is the next generation best lacrosse mesh option for advanced players of all age groups. The story here is the ability to weave two types of fibers into the core of the mesh. This produces a softer channel and a more rigid sides of the mesh for an optimal release runway that literally rockets the ball out of the pocket while shooting but produces more hold and feel while cradling and ball handling. This whole process is called ZONE TECH and is exclusive to the new East Coast Dyes 2.0 Hero mesh. Striker refers to the best selling technology that helps you line your pocket up perfectly by locating the two stripes right down the center of the pocket... so you can quickly tell if your pocket is bagged out straight or not . Let's take a closer look at the technology. Zone Tech essentially comprises two separate and unique areas and fiber of the mesh piece. The inner channel features LTH fibers. Which are a softer, more pliable weave that has a bit of give. This is where the ball sits in the sweet spoy and the LTC weave extends from the bottom of the throat up through the top of the scoop where it starts to fan out a bit.On either side of the LTH channel are the lightest fibers in the world ( according to ECD ) called Innegra. These pieces are woven tightly together and are slightly stiffer than the channel material of LTH. This fibers funnel the ball into the main channel and provide a more consistent and lighter pocket that will bag out less over time.SEE MORE AT THE ECD HERO MESH REVIEWHero 2.0 is also hydrophobic ( which basically means is allergic to water. ) Since the very beginning ECD has prided their lines on consistent performance in all weather conditions. Hero 2.0 is made in the good old USA fellas.The white versions come in Semi Hard and Semi Soft as well as the ever popular 2.0 Striker mesh ( this has lines running up the channel and is available in many colors to add a quick hit of style . ) GET HERO 2.0 CUSTOM STRINGING .

East Coast Dyes
East Coast Dyes Hero2.0 Faceoff lacrosse mesh was inspired by players seeking greatness. At the faceoff X, the smallest advantage can be the differenc between a win and a loss. That's why we are introducing our FO Weave. It's designed to give you the increased movement, feel, and responsiveness you need to own the X. The FO Weave adds support to the outside of the pocket and thins out the channel to allow the pocket to move freely in and out while maintaining its structure. Combine that with the ZoneTech and you have a serious advantage.Designed with ZoneTech - the sides feature Innegra, the lightest fiber in the world, which is less elastic than ECD LTH Fibers. These rigid fibers funnel the ball into the channel and provide a lighter, more consistent pocket that will bag out less over time. The ZoneTech channel features LTH Fibers, which are strategically placed to provide the soft touch and reponsive feel that you rely on when the game is on the line.

ECD Lacrosse Vortex lacrosse mesh

ECD Vortex mesh is a distinct new hybrid technology that uses 2 shapes of diamonds to offer a ball hugging feel that releases straight up the channel with amazing feel and control. This allows you to cradle like soft mesh, but shoot and pass like hard mesh. Our stringers suggest this for more advanced players that really know how to shoot, as they feel this gives the ball a little more whip and could take some getting used to. You get incredible hold and a quick snappy release which is great for those agile goal scorers.

ECD Vortex mesh is a distinct new hybrid technology that uses 2 ( yes TWO . ) sizes of diamonds to offer a ball hugging feel that releases straight up the channel with amazing feel and control. Leave it to Greg and the rest of the ECD gang to revolutionize the mesh market once again . We string this up in a new Mirage and a few top sellers and the results were really amazing. It feels like you are using a grip mesh until you go to shoot.. and then the ball jsut rockets out without all the whip and down force you would need to create a pocket like that.The semi soft vortex grabs the ball in mid pocket configurations like no other. Deep, bagged out control for guys who like to run the lines and shoot from the alleys. The semi hard has a quicker release and much of the same bagged out feel... buy is better for step down shooter who really want to pile on the heat. The new ECD Vortex mesh is made with their Weatherproof LTH fibers that are extremely lightweight and durable. Check out the sweet spot created with this stuff and you will appreciate the ingenuity of double diamond sizing and the control it brings to your game.
