The "AMISCO" Warrior Lacrosse Stick
Looking to see how many different variations of the AMISCO sticker label exist.... anyone have anything different ?
I have seen print advertisements that list a GOALIE Stick by Amisco.... Anyone own one ?
Just acquired 2 really neat EARLY BRINE lacrosse sticks. This is the 2nd generation plastic head that was made by BRINE. I posted a pic about a year ago that featured a blue head .. the two I just acquired are white.. but what makes this early non branded SUPERLIGHT so important is the all original woven pocket. Bobby Pool - the All American player from the 1930's and inventor of the Double Walled Wooden Stick - also designed this pocket and filed for the patent in 1975.. He was eventually granted US Patent # 4,049,273 in 1977 - well after it began to see use in games.
The pocket similar to what STX had offered at the time with MESH - as it was pre-fabricated and could simply be tied into the head when needing replacement. Made of all nylon string - it still resembled a traditional pocket with 4 strings running from scoop to throat just like the leather version would. So there you have it... Bobby Pool also invented and later sold to BRINE his design for a pre-formed pocket.
