A player has been testing out pockets and giving me feedback. Here is an email exchange –
I got the head today, It looks great. Thanks so much. I think with this 2nd (Warrior M-80)
head, I am going to put the pocket about an inch lower just to help with
shooting accuracy but still similar so I can alternate with both. I will
keep in touch.
You got it. Center/middle pockets are the best when all is said and done. That place can vary a little with different heads, but in my opinion all heads have a sweet ‘spot’ where the deepest part of the pocket will be, and where the ball should always sit when cradling, or even moving. In most cases that place is pretty much in the middle part of the head.
I will be interested in your take on the M-80 stick performance overall, and how hopefully more durable than mesh pockets strung by others. Good luck as you get into your season. The M-80 is definitely catching on in popularity. Players like it.
