Yes agreed, I think experimentation is the key to finding a technique that works for you. Watching what others do and then trying it and seeing if it works for you is the way to go. I agree too many people get stuck trying to hit the way someone tells them they must hit. It does seem to hinder the brain. You go out and do what comes naturally and you usually perform much better when you are relaxed and comfortable and not trying to force something. I have never had a coach and am close to 4.5 now without ever taking lessons, just one winter drill class which was useless except for learning the continental grip for hard spin serves.
