    Johnnyf, the forehand consistency thread is the most convoluted online tennis lesson you can get! If anyone is going to read it, stick to Bungalo Bill's claims!

    It's not convoluted except so many different opinions on the elbow part. So do whatever works for you on that, but I found everything else correct. Read BB's stuff on the other things.

    Uh...is it required I post a link? I certainly don't wanna corrupt this thread, it's been discussed everywhere else.

    To be safe:
