Rock-it Pocket has always tried to maintain the reputation that emerged and grew from its original model. That foundation was built on the simple but important values of quality and quality control. The motto/mantra we have always used consists of just 4 words. They are, in no particular order, Accuracy, Dependability, Consistency, and Durability. These are the pocket-making concepts that we have always lived by and strived for. The words have been printed around our company’s ‘target’ logo since we first started way back in the 1987-day.
IN THE BEGINNING
The Rock-it Pocket was originally designed to, in effect, narrow the face opening or width of any lacrosse head by making the ball naturally sit and stay in the middle of the pocket and in only one specific pre-structured spot while the pocket itself moves when cradled to rock the ball safely inside the stick head. A powerful cradling motion with the Rock-it Pocket makes the ball very difficult for a defender to dislodge because the pocket tucks the ball in when cradled.
The center leathers that surround and hug the ball then work to track it to a quick, consistent release point when throwing. This part of the design really promotes shooting accuracy and consistency. The pocket is built in a way so that the space between the two center leathers is reduced or narrowed as the ball travels upward in the pocket. This helps to lift the ball as it approaches its release point.
It is easy to control and affect the amount of ‘whip’ that a Rock-it Pocket has by adjusting the tension on the middle two leather strips. This makes for a very versatile pocket.
ALL ROCK-IT POCKETS ARE CREATED EQUAL
All the Rock-it Pockets do a great job of performing pretty much the same or equally well, no matter what style or brand of head they are strung in, and in all kinds of weather. In fact, some of the earliest hot spots for Rock-it Pocket users were in geographic areas that had to contend with a lot of rain. By building the pocket already formed and ready to play, it minimizes the stretching and changing aspects of the pocket that players often must contend with in inclement weather conditions.
