We strongly believe in hand-strung pockets
Lacrosse players now can play with a full Powell stick
Our sidewall pattern is simple yet complex
Sam creates perfect pockets and he’s not afraid to share them.
Your stick, in many ways, is a direct reflection of your personality and your style as a player.
Here’s a peek at our upcoming series Knot to Mention.
A closer look at top string styles and why we use them.
Magic is real. Take a whimsical walk with our CPM Sam as he laces up a beautiful stick destined for our next Woodshop release. This video may reverse the way that you think about stick stringing all together. Enjoy!
We wandered into our Parent’s garage last week and stumbled upon a group of heads covered in spiderwebs and mouse droppings. They were tied together in a loop like a giant set of janitor keys. As we started flipping through them we couldn’t contain our laughter. We must of sat there and laughed at these things for an hour. These were some of the ugliest heads one could ever imagine. Most were broken, some were painted and all were ugly…
Houdini, Copperfield, Chidester. Take a fun trip with Sam as he laces up a blue Pioneer with paracord 550 for the Wood Shop’s first launch — The Solid Series. We are having so much fun we can’t help ourselves!
Our backyard was a place where we dreamed, played and peeled back the beautiful layers of lacrosse. Adjacent to our PVC goal was our Dad’s wood shop. It was in this 15 x 15 area where we would paint, dye and fine tune our lacrosse sticks day after day.
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.
Is your stick balanced? Weight distribution is critical when it comes to the performance of your stick. It’s responsible for things like stick control and shot speed — just to name a few. In this video Mike walks us through his way of balancing his stick.
Have you ever gotten a point blank shot from 8 yards out, wound up and let it rip only to watch the ball sail through the football goal posts? Lets be honest, it has happened to all of us at some point in our careers. This is known as the infamous “skyball.”
How do you like your shooters? One of the first meetings we had with Sam we talked in great detail about shooting string set ups. First off, we all agreed how much we love how every player seems to have their own style when it comes to how they configure and tie up their top strings. Certainly one of the coolest aspects of our sport is the individuality within the team concept. Lacrosse is a very creative game filled with…
Sam gives a few pointers in this video on sidewall tension, why it is important and how to get yours tight. Creating a tighter sidewall eliminates margin of error and in turn increases consistency. Locking the mesh in place also greatly reduces the amount of wear on the sidewalls and the mesh because it reduces friction.
We Don’t String Sticks For Midfielders. We string sticks for lacrosse players. Our stringing philosophy calls upon our history of playing all our lives. We have played field lacrosse, indoor box lacrosse, outdoor box lacrosse, backyard lacrosse, beach lacrosse, youth lacrosse, pro lacrosse — you get the idea. We grew up with sticks in our hands.
