Description Of Hard Mesh / Pocket Placement
by Zander Berlinski
Hard Mesh is by far and away the most popular mesh on the market. It is fairly easy to break in yet will hold its pocket in poor weather. It offers good hold as well as good shot speed with a quick release. It is an excellent choice for any player at any position because of its versatility. Although it may not have as much hold as some of the smaller diamond meshes its great versatility and nice release makes it an overall great mesh.
High Pockets: High pockets usually offer great amounts of hold. As a result of this hold these types of pockets will often have a fair amount of whip on them. Their release will also not be as fast as a middle or low pocket. Although, this is all true, if strung correctly high pockets can have a nice release and tons of hold. A good choice for defenseman or middies who do not need an extremely quick release.
Middle Pockets: These pockets bridge the gap between the high and low pockets, with a solid amount of hold but also a nice smooth release. This has come to be the most popular pocket location because of the balance it offers. It is great for any position because it has good hold as well as a quick release.
Low Pockets: Low pockets have extremely quick releases and good shot speed but often suffer in hold. Although, if strung correctly low pockets can offer a smooth release while maintaining a good amount of hold. These pockets are great for attackmen who need quick releases on their shots.
