My best ones will stick there, which is why I even notice this stuff in the 1st place.

When I was a junior my technique was all over the map, but I served even bigger.

Now that I am serving more and more relaxed, and finally getting a higher toss and rhythm, I am seeing easier power than before. a lot of it boils down to getting off the ground and on top of the ball. Easier for tall guys who don't have to jump.
