I have been playing for about 2 years and have strung about 6 heads for me and my brother. I only did mesh but one custom for me. My Girlfriend just started playing and she bought a beginner stick and thought it was too plain. She is a country girl and loves camo and pink, she wanted something a little more ‘her’. I dyed the pink head half black and put in a traditional string job with a pita twist, with camo color stringing. This is what it looks like.  Submitted by Matt

homemade wooden shaft

 

I’ve attached a few pics of a stick I built. I made the shaft out of hickory and dyed and strung the head (Gait Chaos). The shaft has a hollow core. It’s light and durable. The shaft in the picture was used by my son last season. I sanded it, put on a new coat of stain and painted it for his new look. Submitted by Rich

Italia head

I have a great tip for lacrosse stringing. Instead of stringing in a nylon shooting string as one of your shooters, put in an extra hockey lace or no string at all. It will give the head less hold but that can be fixed by tightening the shooting strings. It makes the head throw like an angel as well.

Some heads have holes that are so small it is hard to fit the sidewall string through them. When you are faced with this predicament, melt about an inch of the end of the sidewall string with a lighter (ask your parents), then cut the tip off in the middle of the hardened end so a sharper end is formed. It will not fray and will be small enough to fit into any hole. – Submitted by James
