One of the main reasons we love making lacrosse sticks is the unique relationship between the player and this important piece of equipment. There are few sports in the world that share this bond between the athlete and the equipment. Much of this has to do with the history of the sport but beyond that it boils down to player preference and personal expression. Your stick, in many ways, is a direct reflection of your personality and your style as a player.
If you walk onto a field and you see a kid rockin’ fluorescent pink mesh with neon green shooters hanging six inches off the plastic you pretty much now right off the bat what type of player you’re dealing with. And, to be candid, that’s what is great about lacrosse stick set ups.
It’s been said numerous times in our sport that “the stick is an extension of your body”, so you want it to look and feel as good as possible to match your performance. So is there a difference between a forest green sidewall and a bright blue one? Maybe not to the outsider but to the passionate lacrosse player it’s a huge difference. We’ve seen string suppliers introduce a huge amount of new colorways into the marketplace over the past couple years because of this need for self expression.
As you may or may not know, we hand string EVERY single pocket that leaves headquarters. We want our sticks to be the very best and the only way to control that is to develop an amazing pattern, hire the worlds best stringers and offer only the very best in stringing supplies and accessories. When we launch last year as a company we were very aware that pockets were a major area of focus for us and a very cool one at that.
With this in mind we wanted to give our customers the ability to choose from a wide range of the best stringing materials currently available and get their new heads strung by some of the greatest lacers in the sport. So hop on over to our custom stringing page to learn more about the options and the process. A custom strung stick from Powell is an awesome way to blend world class function with high class fashion.
Here’s what people have to say about their custom strung Pioneers so far:
I absolutely love my pre-strung pioneer. I pulled it out of the box and started throwing on a dime. The stringing was perfect. I still haven’t messed with it and it throws perfectly.
The custom stringing is the best I’ve seen. My new stick throws perfectly. Love it!!!
Best pocket I’ve ever purchased in a new stick. Hands down.
