Offhand sidearm or main hand backhand

Postby BrohanSolo » Tue May 03, 2011 10:42 am

I throw mainly sidearm for distance drives, and use tomahawk, thumbahawk for midrange. I use backhand for approach shots and putting; I need to either increase the distance of my RHBH or develop a LHFH shot.

Any thoughts on which would be easier, faster?

your best option is RHBH, unless you are amphibious.

What if you are submersible?
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

If you are amphibious then switch to water polo.

You know your power better than we do. Some players are sidearm dominant while others are backhand dominant. The rest are amphibious. :D
