Has anyone got or seen any good stringing tutorials preferably for the eclipse head?

Was going to suggest this thread ( /viewtopic.php?f=47&t=6731 )but reread it and it would appear that nobody else has found a goalie head stringing tutorial that they deemed worthy of sharing. CJLax shares some hints and tips early on.

maybe smack it ('stringing stx eclipse mesh' should do it) into google and spend half an hour finding one you like and share it with us?

String like this but alter the way he does the bottom string, else you won't get a deep enough pocket. http://www.lax.com/tv/?topic=2

Also, make sure to stretch your mesh as much as possible before you string it. I've used this tutorial for a while now and have strung 3 eclipses with it. The more you do it the better you get, but even the first time I used this tutorial it did me well.

Just refinished doing my head using this guide: http://forums.insidelacrosse.com/showthread.php?t=25474

If you follow the simple instructions and pictures i think it's pretty hard to go wrong, mine's got a nice shape to it and I hadn't strung any kind of head before this so to re-iterate it's a pretty solid guide that even a complete beginner can follow!
