Last weekend The Lax Shop sent representatives out to Philly to experience the 2014 National Lacrosse Convention and we are recapping some of our favorite products and vendors. 2013 was the year of mesh and 2014 figures to be even bigger as more and more companies continue to innovate. East Coast Dyes has been a fan favorite for a while now and we can’t wait to see what they have in store with their newest line of mesh. Jimalax had a great presence and their Money Mesh line should be a very good seller. Gonzo Mesh had Kevin Crowley in attendance and they are introducing a new package for their incredibly popular rubberized mesh. Be sure to keep an eye out for it in 2014. Lastly in the mesh area something truly exciting comes from Epoch Lacrosse and their preview of the Otter Mesh, built from military grade materials it appears to be the lightest mesh ever made and its completely weather-proof. We can’t wait to get our hands on this product, this could be the advancement of 2014.
The STX USA Men’s National team display was a big draw and attendee’s couldn’t wait for their chance to see the new Stallion HD line decked out in the Red, White and Blue.
The Maverik and Cascade booth was teeming with the newest gear on the men’s and women’s side of the game. Be sure to check out their new Metrik head and their women’s line of gear! They also had a great set up of Cascade R’s that are going to be making their debut on the field in 2014.
Building off the excitement of the R helmet there are now several companies in the head wrap companies, notably Head Wrapz and School Pride that are really making waves with their innovative designs.
Lastly, one of the most interesting things we came across was Uncle Rick’s ReLax Hammocks. It is a hammock that is hand-made to look like a traditionally strung stick which absolutely turned heads.
