Gopherlax5's Break In update 3

Brine Clutch 2 strung with a 6 diamond traditional pocket. The head has Minlax leathers and white crosslace with yellow sidewall and black shooters. To begin the break in, I've changed up my normal break in (pocket screw and water) and went old school. I'm wall balling and shooting daily and make small adjustments (leather/shooter tightening or loosening as required) post session. It takes a lot more time to get it game ready but it'll create a lifelong constant pocket. The leathers will naturally stretch and break in with continual pounding from the wall ball. I'll post the pics every 2 weeks.


UPDATE: 2 weeks in, wall ball and shoot for 20 minutes a day. The only adjustments have been to tighten/loosen the shooters as needed. The leathers are breakin in nicely. Still not game ready just yet.


UPDATE 2: Over a month in. The pockets really coming together. It's game ready but haven't used it since its been below 20 degrees the last few pick up games. The diamonds have shifted so they are smaller at the top and bottom and larger in the middle. I feel this is the perfect balance of drag and snap.

UPDATE 3: almost 2 months down, it's really breaking in nicely. Still only using wall ball to break it in (and at pick up when indoors). Catching is really great, no rattling around the pocket. The releasing is getting to where I like it. Will be good to go soon.
