a different means of attaching the mesh to the sidewall in order to produce a channel unlike any other pockets we've seen.
to increase cushioning on catches and flex while cradling. Other added benefits here as described by Bob:
"It's comical when you stop and think that tennis shoe laces remain an integral part of the pockets being strapped onto the modern, highly engineered heads they make today," Bob says.
Freedom of choice for the stringer to pinpoint and decide how much rise/run (the angle) from the bottom of the pocket up to the release point
The Stringers Spotlight brings you a unique concept today from the mind of Bob Savage, a longtime lacrosse fanatic who lives near Portland, Oregon, and has been stringing sticks for many years.
The loops of the connections allow the pocket to swivel, and those lengths increase/sway when cradling, providing more ball protection and hold when carrying.
By design, the loops are attached to the mesh so they are canted forward or lying down in a forward direction toward the top of the head when the ball is not in the pocket. When the ball enters the pocket, its force and impact engages the loops and they are simultaneously pushed/pulled backward, and the weight of the ball keeps those loops from lying back down. The end result is a better feel on catch and release.
If you look at the above photo, you will see two points marked A and B. This is what Bob refers to as the starting point for the AK Savo. By pulling until there is tension in the mesh, the top of the pocket is formed more narrowly and the top of the mesh pulled upward.
See more of these two AK Savo pockets below for a closer look at how it is strung (yes, the Stallion got a little bit of a pinch, and that's actually a product of how tight the top connection points are pulled in this particular pocket). Stay tuned for more on this pocket with additional insight from Bob himself.

Bob Savages 'AK Savo' Pocket
Using 10 diamond soft mesh from Jimalax, Bob strung up the Nike Vapor and the STX Stallion you see below with the AK Savo, a pocket that has quickly gained popularity on social media, and for good reason. Here, we explain the idea behind this concept and the benefits it yields for the player.
The first row of diamonds in essence becomes like the lip of the head, depending on the amount of tension you create. If you look at the connection points between the sidewall (which is plain crosslace, not sidewall) underneath the starting point, this is what Bob says is used to determine the width of the pocket area (the upper channel) and the smoothness of the release. The interesting benefit here, Bob points out, is that by crafting the upper part of the pocket in this manner (starting tight at the top and gradually stringing the connection points more loosely heading down the sidewall), there is no need for shooting strings.
Bob has come up with a really interesting concept for stringing a mesh pocket, and it's one that might change the way you think about how a typical mesh pocket functions. Meet the AK Savo, a stringing style that utilizes Nike Vapormax V2
