  2. rob Says:

    and whats the difference between the way you string your shooting string weather it is a V or double V or the way you have it in the video

  3. Skaggs Says:

    Well, this is a fairly good, but simplistic look at a mesh pocket.  While suitable for newer stringers, you didn’t take into account a couple of things:

    Channel- the tightness of a channel caused by interlocks/knots can really affect the whip, regardless of pocket placement

    Pocket shape- not all low pockets are low whip.  Many low pockets with a very “flat ramp” as demonstrated, will have a good amount of whip due to the ball releasing off of the first shooter.

    I’ll use the bike analogy again:  if there is a bump(shooter) on a very flat ramp, the biker will pop up off of the bump.  On a ramp with a slight amount of curve, the centrifugal force is enough to keep the biker on the ramp.

    Pocket definition- a very defined low pocket can have a lot more whip than a more gradual mid pocket.

    So I’d say this video will help an inexperienced stringer but it could also mislead in some ways.

    Justin, I was wondering if the pocket screw you used is something you made, or if it is a product that I could find and purchase. i’d appreciate any info you could give. I love the blog. keep up the good work!

    I’m so confused! but if you have that kind of whip wouldnt it slow your shot down? i was told that if your stick had less whip you would have a faster shot…
