Here is some of my stroking from 3 years ago:

When that ball is coming in quick and high I have to bend my arm in to hit it late.
Nice video, thanks. So in my video you're saying the differences between a straight and bent arm are from a matter of timing, but just curious - how much does technique come into play? I mean, would you say in general that either 1. When you hit the ball (timing) mostly determines a shot being straight or bent armed and technique can disrupt this, or 2. How you hit the ball (technique) mostly determines a shot being straight or bent armed and timing can disrupt this. If I am on the right track with asking this, I don't think that timing and technique can play equal parts, because then hitting with a straight or bent arm would be totally random
