Is Stringers Shack G3 Lacrosse Mesh the new Golden Standard?
Performance mesh tends to be an expensive purchase for the average player but at Stringers Shack that’s far from true. After re-posting a stick (Here) strung up by an account on Instagram that goes by 1featherstrings, we asked other players what they thought about Stringers Shack G3 Ultralight Performance Mesh. We found out that their lacrosse mesh is comparable to big brands in terms of quality, but for a fraction of the price. Where typically, performance mesh runs between $20 & $30 dollars from big brands, Stringers Shack’s G3 Ultralight Performance Mesh is only $5.75. Now, this is only for white mesh, while colored mesh of the G3 ultralight is 7.50. Now, we’re not saying it’s better because we don’t believe that there is the best lacrosse mesh rather than, a great option at an even better price.

G3 Ultralight Performance Mesh Characteristics:
- The ultralight version of the G3 mesh is made from a non-nylon based high-performance material compared to other brands like Rocket Mesh who use Dyneema for their Lacrosse Mesh
- Compared to the traditional G3 Mesh the Stringers Shack G3 Ultralight Mesh was made with slimmed down center connection points, which reduced its weight to only 26 grams.
- The Semi-Soft Mesh is coated on a state of the art high-pressure air coating line, which drives the latex solution through the mesh. This creates a more durable & consistent mesh providing excellent control and responsiveness.
- The G3 Ultralight Mesh has been compared to String Kings 3s but more resembles a piece of broken in a piece of East Coast Dyes Hero Mesh.
- The pocket retains its shape very well providing great hold and an accurate release.

Ben Newaterman a player and stringer in the lacrosse community said,
“I’m a huge Stringers Shack fan. It’s fantastic stuff, basically, my go to. Easily comparable to ECD or String King in terms of quality and performance.$25 mesh is good for the manufacturers but $5 mesh grows the sport. They make their own stuff too. No fancy ads, no fancy packaging. Just great mesh.“

Rick Kovalsick who is a father, coach, and player on the Portugal National Team, Vermont Voyageurs, & Northmen said,
“I have sworn by the G3 ultralight since it came out. I still use the original G3 in my box sticks. I’ve never had a piece fray or blow out on me and that included the entire side of my face off sticks. No weather issues. Very little, if any adjustment when playing in rain. All around great mesh.”

- They do things simply and invest in players rather than profits which are something that we can get behind and believe more companies should do.
