What is Lax Wax?
Lax Wax is a wax-based solution that players manually apply in the pocket of their lacrosse stick. Lax Wax works in traditional, hard or soft mesh to help protect the pocket, sidewalls and shooters from getting saturated with the elements, like water & mud, while providing tack for ball control. When Lax Wax is used with a hard mesh, it makes it feel like a soft mesh as the wax gives the player the feeling of more ball control because the wax hugs the ball in the pocket. If the player plays with a soft mesh, the wax helps the ball release like a hard mesh and promotes an increased release velocity. Lax Wax is a mesh treated pocket or a waxed mesh with out the stringing.
How does Lax Wax work?
Lax Wax penetrates and surrounds the strings of the pocket as well as the sidewalls and shooting strings to cover the entire pocket. The user controls the amount and can reapply at any time in seconds.
Why should I use Lax Wax?
With Lax Wax you can take a stick off the rack or your existing stick, no matter the pocket, apply and in seconds it is ready. If used on an existing stick, there is no break in time necessary and the player already knows how the stick will throw.

We know you don't just play in rain. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, mud, morning dew and even your team joker's water bottle can affect your product. Lax Wax protects you from all the elements!
What is ball-ipulation?
Kind of like manipulation, but its how you control the ball while it's in your stick. Increased friction and tack allow you to hold on to the ball longer while the wax increases velocity of your shot. We call that Ball-ipulation!

Whats the difference between Lax Wax and "Water-resistant mesh" or wax treated mesh?
With a water-proof mesh, you have to restring your stick. If you don't like the way it feels, you have to restring your stick again or get another stick. With Lax Wax, you can apply it to a stick off the rack, your current stick, a pre-treated mesh or any stick you see. It's ready in a matter of seconds and you already know how the stick throws because it's your game spoon! Also, Lax Wax waterproofs the shooting strings and sidewalls. It keeps them conditioned so they don't break. Even if you have a "Water-Proof" mesh, you need make it tacky and keep your shooting strings and sidewalls from breaking.
Why should I wax my strings?

How long does Lax Wax Last?
Lax Wax can last an entire season or a year. It all depends on how often you apply it or how much you share with your teammates. The initial first few times you use Lax Wax, you should generously apply it to both sides of your pocket, shooters and sidewalls. You will have to apply several times in order to work the solution deeper into the fibers. You will find that after the initial first few applications, you start to feel the wax stay on the strings longer. After the initial applications, you wont have to use it as often. Or just touch the pocket up before a game or practice.

It is best if your stick is completely dry, but you can apply it to a slightly damp stick.
Can I use Lax Wax on a traditional strung head?

How do I take Lax Wax off if I don't like it?
Trust us, you'll like it! But if for some reason your teammates are complaining your making them look bad, play with it. The more you play with it, Lax Wax will work its way into the weave and any excess will flake off over time. The more Lax Wax you put on the pocket the harder it is to get off. If all else fails, you can take it off with Goo Gone, but why would you want to do that?
What is the melting point?
Most users Lax Wax has a melting point of 120 degrees. If you play in extreme heat, it is advised that you keep your tube of Lax Wax in a cool place. Your gear bag should be fine. The downside of keeping it in the sun, is that it will melt if left there for a while, however if just left for a few minutes, the wax solution will become soft making it easy to apply. Most find this to be better.
