I haven't used this pocket a ton recently because I use a different stick for my gamer, but it is still incredible. I have been using it on the weekends or whenever I need a stick outside of practice and games and it still throws exactly how I want it. High hold and low whip. I have really learned a lot about traditionals with this competition and I think if I were to do this again my stick would be a lot better and I would be able to put more into it. This stick still has a tennis ball in it when it's not in use to hold the pocket shape and sometimes I tighten the topstring and sidewalls if they get a little loose. Overall though, this pocket has been amazing.
