How to String Your Lacrosse Head Top String
In this lacrosse stringing tutorial, you will learn how to string a 9 diamond hidden top string step by step. The difference between a standard 9d top string and a hidden 9d top string is how the lacrosse mesh is attached to the scoop. While a standard top string lock down the mesh to the scoop a hidden top string has a float between the mesh and scoop but held in place by the top string. See the figure below for a visual representation.
Step 1: Secure the mesh to the sidewall
The photo to the right shows how we completed step 1 by locking the mesh down to the sidewall. Normally, I would use one sidewall hole and double loop it, but since this head was not designed for that; I had to improvise. This is the first step to stringing a lacrosse stick.
Step 2: Attach the second diamond to the first top string hole
Imagine how you would do a normal 9 diamond top string, but without actually locking the mesh to the scoop. First, you will want to go through the back of the mesh and then the back of the head. After you go through the back of the head, go to the string which is shown in the right photo.
Step 3: Skip the third hole on the mesh row
Now it’s a pretty repetitive process where you will repeat the top string knot across the rest of the scoop every other diamond in the mesh row.
