This pocket carries a $10 upcharge due to the amount of time to cut and glue each "ladder" string.
This modified traditional setup is constructed of 4 leathers giving the players the most feel no matter where in the pocket the ball rests. This pocket has great feel, superior hold and shoots really hard because of its late release. The center ladder string pieces are cut to varying lengths and glued in place, forcing the ball to a high point just below the first shooter. Again as with the Crossover traditional pocket the all leather construction is very susceptible to changes in weather conditions. The two middle leathers take most of the brunt of the ball force during catching and all of the ball's torque during passing and shooting. Playing in wet conditions, these leathers will stretch, moving the release point even higher in the head, making the pocket shoot down. Conversely, as the leathers dry out and shrink the pocket will shoot higher and higher. The player needs to accept the fact that her stick will be a little inconsistent during weather change and be will have to adjust her game to her stick that day. Special attention is needed to ensure that this pocket stays legal. The new 2016 girl's stringing rules state that the distance between the two middle leathers ( inside edge to inside edge ) must be 1.5 inches or less. This pocket can become illegal very quickly when wet
