I'll go out and make a video showing me soon. It's very difficult to explain in words when an image will do it better. Just got caught hitting with seniors today.
There's balance, weight shift, takeback, grip, shoulder turn, follow through, straight arm vs. bent arm, shoulder roll. The whole gamut. lol
That is why I asked how you handle shoulder height balls, he he he! BH is still my biggest weakness, as I can't get the timing down perfectly. It has power at times, but definitely not yet a reliable weapon for me.
Haha! Well, the ball is outside the "power zone" for sure then. :)
I was practicing last night, but bouncing the ball closer to my waist. Funny thing is I kept hitting the net, ha ha ha!
One thing I should've done is to swing my left leg around for weight transfer. But I was trying to just recover for the next self-feed to keep the clip short.
Ah, yes! When it gets around shoulder height, the takeback has to start higher, and the wrist has to fold over the ball. It still can be hit pretty aggressively, but the prep has to be there. I prefer the Kuerten style for the high balls, because the wrist already is "pre-folded" with a more closed grip.
I'll post a video where I show the difference between the two soon. It's just raining here.
I would love to see this technique with a higher ball, say around shoulder height?
