StylinStrings Knocks Out Breast Cancer

StylinStrings just turned 10 years old, and is returning to the site that it made it's debut to the entire lacrosse world. Ten years after writing the initial articles for the Mesh-X, Homegrown Pocket, and a few others, SS is back for good.

After years of being at the forefront of the stringing and dyeing customization movement, SS went underground the last few years reinventing itself to launch back into the mainstream lacrosse media with a bang.

A new website, new management, remodeled retail store in York PA, expanded dye lab, stick photography/video studio, and full team of string/dye artist, SS is here to stay, especially as a featured contributor to e-Lacrosse.

This article features a full custom project for the NLL's Philadelphia Wings. The idea was to brand some sticks with the Wings logos and Breast cancer ribbons to use in their silent auction on Breast Cancer night when the team wore Pink jersey's when playing the Buffalo Bandits.

So the guys at StylinStrings tricked out an STX Viper and a Reebok 9k with different custom variations of the Wings logos. Thru stage dyeing two colors of pink were used, a Petal pink and a rich Fuscia. Some of the stickers were put on the heads while white and others after brief dips in pink to give a ghosted feal to the logos.

Pat Heim, STX rep, and Wings Player also had the guys do a full custom STX Surgeon with all ribbons strategically placed to commemorate how close it hit home with his own mother.

After the sticks were done it was off to the game where Joe Sheridan event coordinator of the Wells Fargo Center in Philly put the SS guys in box seats to enjoy the game for their donation. SS was featured on the big screen in front of thousands and some of the pictures Dustin happened to capture was a Wings knock out for Breast Cancer.
