For the Record

I recently took a trip out to our good family friends at Johnson Brothers Lumber in Cazenovia NY to pick out the right wood for this project. This is the premier hardwood lumber mill in the area and without a doubt my go-to spot when I am feeling creative. Set against the sprawling rural landscape, Johnson’s is a blue collar family run business specializing in large quantity hardwoods like maple, cherry, oak, elm, birch, beech and walnut. On this particular mission…

Diggin’ In

Three weeks ago I decided to take a rare break, steep some tea and watch a documentary film that a close friend of mine suggested.  I’ve noticed that because of my wide range of interests and appreciation for all forms of creation, my friends and family are constantly sending me recommendations and inspiration. I love it — it makes my walk to the mailbox an anticipated activity. This particular documentary “Finding Vivian Maier” told the story of a mysterious street…

Sock It To Me

In the heat of the moment your feet produce more sweat than pretty much anywhere else on your body.  Sports socks were invented to help carry moisture off the skin so it can release through evaporation. Wool socks were invented to prevent frostbite. And argyle socks were made for nerds and Payne Stewart.

Art in Sport – Sport in the Arts

Is there anything more beautiful than watching a perfectly executed fast break?  A blend of spontaneity and calculation, a fast break from inception to completion is an absolute work of art. As soon as the outlet pass hits a streaking stick you can feel the anticipation and energy build on the field and in the stands. The crowd knows something spectacular is about to unfold before their eyes — the crescendo begins.

The Evolution of Lacrosse Apparel

If you went through any lacrosse players dresser right now you would find roughly 7 or 8 tee shirts buried in the back of the bottom drawer.  These tee shirts would have bright colored tournament logos plastered on the back and left chest, some random companies you’ve never heard of branded on the sleeves, a Hanes Beefy T tag, a giant stain from sitting in the bottom of a bag for weeks and they would range in size from youth…

Wooden Shaft Series VOL 1

A couple of years ago I was doing some carpentry work on a house built in 1890 with my good friend Mic. We were pulling up a plywood subfloor and revealing beautiful oak floor boards. Mic is an incredible life long woodworker that I met back in 2009 when I was playing music at a folk house in Upstate NY. He is one of those guys that I am pretty sure could fix anything and fix it with a lot…

Top 3 Reasons Why Sam Likes Paracord

Paracord has been around the game for a while but never on the mainstage — until now.  Paracord 550 is a 7 braid core string that is able to withstand lots of weight. Outside of the strength however, it also has a several other features that make it an excellent choice for stringing lacrosse sticks. Sam talks here about his top three reasons why he is experimenting with paracord and why you should too.

#rippedrope

There’s nothing more beautiful than a perfectly executed fast break. It all starts with a big time goalie play where he drops to a split and makes an off hip save on the doorstep.  He immediately jumps to his feet and finds a streaking defenseman charging up field. The defenseman only has the ball in his stick for two steps and then sends a pass just beyond the mid stripe that finds a goal-bound middie perfectly in stride headed for…

The Birth of the Eyecon

Our first meeting as a group was roughly two years ago while sitting around a dinner table in Upstate New York.  Ryan explained his vision for Powell and how he wanted to not only make the best sticks in the world but also change the lacrosse landscape in the process. Words like “authenticity” and “honesty” were hammered into his message.
