So I got bored and thought I'd try and string up a trad pocket. Its something I've been toying with for a while as I can string a good looking and functional mesh pocket reasonably quickly, so wanted to expand my skill set. Problem is that I don't know of anybody else locally who does this, so my usual pool of constructive criticism is missing.

Here is my first attempt at a pita-style pocket. Its strung on a Mohawk Mach 1 (thanks Cheeky). It throws quite nicely considering its my first attempt, alot of hold, not too much whip. Any comment and criticism welcome provided you can tell me how to fix it if its wrong. Please bare in mind its a pita style pocket not a pedigree one, some things are different.

If you'd like to see some other pictures from different angles please say and I'll get my photographer on it :D

Looks good

Interlocks are a bit loose will probably move around a bit whilst breaking in but good attempt
League restructure I told you so 10/3/2011(looking good on this one)
Prem division to two leagues will result in the prem division failing and being combined with Nemla 22/3/2012
the proposed restructure to 8 teams in each prem league will only last a couple of years until it has to be restructured again due to teams dropping out. 13/12/2012

Thank you!

I couldn't work out how to get the singles to be tighter and still get the desired depth of pocket, any tips?
