There is tremendous power from just the correct manipulation of the tiny bit of "recoil"
I am going to say this is much more important than trying to learn a big long pull, huge coil, or fast run up. Especially if you want to have any clue where the thing is going.
whip power instead of finish power

That is I didnt go for a long reachback and didnt accelerate as ealy as I usually do, but focussed instead on accelerating through the hit. At times I would do a 360. What I found was that at times I got some nice flights, but it seemd much harder to aim/time the rip because that window just got smaller. I dont think I got much snap either, but of course its hard to tell since I have no vid of myself. I also think it doesnt help that Im bundled up atm. because of the cold and wet weather right now.
