Hitting it !

Postby JPS » Sun Jan 13, 2008 7:39 am

Here is a short clip of yesterdays practice session where I was practicing coming around slower to ensure that I get into position for the Hit.

All comments greatly appreciated as I feel that I can get better balance with a little more work on foot and body placement.

Looking good jeremy, it is deff staying a little flatter, your left hand looks to have dipped a wee bit just before hit and maybe be losing a bit of power!?

Thanks for the feedback Paddy , I was back at the field today working on that casting the 175 gram and am getting a bit better.

I will post the clips of the 175 gram casts later for further hints.

Thank you.

Paddy ,

At this time it looks like I will be the lone Australian in the comp as cost and time have a big impact on peoples ability to make it over the pond.

I will be having a comp with both Scott and Lee on Sunday and Scott will be staying at my place on Saturday evening as he has to fly down from Sydney to compete.
Problem with having such a large country :lol:

Had a good session on the 175 gram last night and just had to concentrate on turning slow before hitting it.

I will post some footage tonight.

Regards :D
