even with those balls, the contact point will vary albeit less so than regular ball. increasing versatility of the 1hbh stroke itself is the most effective way to boost the confidence for the players at any level. it's the common instructions that cause discomfort in dealing with higher balls. take a look at gasquet, almagro, guga, henin, and their take backs and arm coil, they deal with higher balls more effectively than most other 1hbh. I believe the high take back and flatter swing path (this doesn't mean flat shot) should become the main swing path in instructions, which makes torso and shoulder level balls normal range.
