In these trying times it is important to appreciate the joys in life, which is why I am continuing to make sticks. Although I will still be making sticks, government restrictions may not allow me to consistently distribute them. So, if you order, I ask that you only do so if you are content waiting as the COVID-19 situation continues to unwind.
I always strive to get my sticks out as soon as possible, however the restrictions on non-essential businesses are changing every day. I respect these restrictions. If you purchase a stick, please know that I will still put the love and care into making if for you. Since I am investing my time in completing your order, I cannot accept returns or offer refunds, if shipping errors or delays occur.
My commitment has, and always will be, making quality sticks as efficiently and timely as possible. If government restrictions impede my ability to ship, please know, my first priority upon returning to normalcy, will be to send your stick and bring joy to you and your family. I appreciate you being a participating partner as we all move forward as a community.
This Wooden Field Lacrosse Stick is made by Justin Skaggs, Skaggs Woodworks, who is a non-indigenous stick-maker in Philadelphia, PA. It is made in the likeness of sticks made throughout history. All Skaggs Woodworks' sticks are made from Hickory trees cut in Northern Pennsylvania. Each stick is handcrafted over the course of many months.
This model is made for Field Lacrosse. Field sticks feature a wider head which makes for easier catching and similar feel to modern heads.
Stick length: I try to keep my sticks as long as nature allows. The goal is to let you choose to adjust or cut the shaft down to fit your personal needs. Donít be shy about this. Many antique sticks that I find are cut, and I can help you if you need. Field sticks are legal between 40 and 42 inches, however, many folks want a stick that is longer so it feels more like a stick from years past. Box sticks can be between 40 and 46 inches depending on league rules. It is because of this my sticks (box or field) vary in length between 42 and 48 inches. Usually trending on the longer side. If you have specific needs just email me after your order.
Pocket: Lacrosse pockets are often overlooked on classic wooden sticks. I use my 16 years of stringing experience to mold a hand-spun pocket that is broken in and ready to enjoy. I prefer to use a traditional rawhide gutwall. The head is laced with a soft braided bootlace that has taken many years to find.
Since this is a handmade item, it requires a few days of processing time. If timing is crucial, I am always happy to work with you.
Expedited shipping options are available, but will not accelerate the processing time.
Engravings will add additional time. Likely 48 to 72 hours.
The Post Office (flat rate shipping) moves its packages over the weekend and UPS does not. Keep this in mind as you select your shipping option. USPS states that their shipping will take 2 to 3 days but it may come a day sooner or later. Please keep your eye on the tracking information sent to you.
