EastCoastMesh is very good mesh. It repels water, has no break in period, was easy to string, has awesome colors, and the wax coating adds hold. However, this mesh is not perfect. The mesh changes over time due to the outer coating breaking down and wearing away. This causes the ball to not gripping the mesh the same way changing how your pocket throws. Also, temperature you play in WILL affect your pocket. The wax freezes in cold weather and melts in hot weather. This makes the mesh inconsistent and less reliable. Also, diamonds of the mesh tend to stretch when being pulled tight when stringing. Do not get me wrong, this mesh is a great product , just does not blow me away.
