So we’ve been talking around the office for the last couple days about traditionally strung pockets. What’s the deal with them? Does anyone actually use one? Let me rephrase that, does anyone actually use one because it has performance benefits? I have plenty of friends that would use them to joke around with cause they thought they looked cool, but they were joking.
(What’s the deal?)
I know Steele Stanwick uses one, but that has to be for superstitious reasons. His game can’t be improving with his setup. They are heavier, less consistent, more vulnerable to break, less weather resistant, and more confusing to string. I’ve even seen new companies use the look of traditional stringing and try to modernize it with varying colors and patterns. I can’t for the life of me figure out why someone would dig that set up.
(Do people actually think these are cool?)
Are they superior in any way? What am I missing here? Why do people still sell these bad larrys? Please leave a comment and help us out. Or find us on Twitter @stringkinglax and let us know the deal with traditional stringing. I guess I’m lost.
