Remember when equipment padding was vinyl coated and barely thick enough to protect you?
Remember when the leather palms of your L33/L35 gloves got so dry from sweat, that you splashed water on them during warm-ups just minutes before the opening whistle on game day?
Remember when the compression shorts/spandex were longer than your actual game shorts?
Remember when a simple, cotton t-shirt was all you wore underneath your equipment pads?
Remember when stringing a stick took numerous times, hours and even days? We’re talking TRADITIONAL stringing – MESH isn’t considered stringing!
Remember when the choices for a shaft were only; wood or aluminum? Plus those “dowel-shafts”?
Remember when the heads had no “pinch” and no “off-set” design?
Remember when people called the lacrosse company “STX” not by saying “S-T-X”, but by it’s real pronunciation–”STICKS”?
