Lacrosse Stringing FAQ
The average price to re-string a lacrosse head in the US without stringing supplies can range from $10 to $25, depending on the stringer.
Finish the side panel of your lacrosse head
Once again, feed your cord through the back of your lacrosse net once you have reached this step. Then feed your lacrosse cord through the inside of the lacrosse head and tie it off.
Assuming you’re a beginner who has no idea how to string a lacrosse head, we estimate you can complete the task in 30-45 minutes once you’ve got all the steps in followed this guide.
New member. I would string it myself. While a pro might string a better bag initially, once you string it it will be yours and you will learn how to cast it and how to adjust it and if it’s a complete failure you can always pro it later stringed.< /p>
Usually two weft cords will do, and you want them to run parallel to each other across the top of the head. The upper weft line should be tighter than the one below.
The idea is to reuse as much of the original material as possible. So if an old piece of hard tissue is reusable, I’ll keep it in the stick. If the sidewall string is still usable, it goes back in after a quick clean. Same goes for shooting lines, bottom lines and anything else I can reuse.
Depends on the stick. If it’s easy and I get it right the first time, about half an hour. If it’s mine or I can’t get the pocket depth right the first time or other little things could go wrong, up to 2 hours.
New member. Defenders also go through them faster. I can usually get 8 months out of a head before it softens/warps.
You should at the start of each season upgrade your old lacrosse head to a new lacrosse head and depending on how aggressively you play you may need a few.
As everyone said there is no set date. If your bag sucks or if your strings are starting to snap, you might want to change them. People always ask me what to do with their sticks and the answer is almost always “It’s up to you!”
Tall Lacrosse Pockets
Tall pockets are most useful for defensive players and players who want superior control or big shooters. A high pocket’s groundball ability is one of the best qualities that makes it an easy choice for defense.
Lacrosse sticks will throw into the ground if they have too much whip. The problem of too much whip arises from stringing problems with the lacrosse bag. Some prominent examples of these stringing problems are broken nylon threads, excessive pocket depth or extremely tight weft strings.
