Actually that's old too haha, maybe I should get a new vid up.
In that phase I was trying to work on incorporating more spin and margin into my game. But I'm an aggressive driver at heart and full western game is just not for me.
But specifically on the back swing, I'm using the shorter form like in that last video and not the longer version I used three years ago. I'm keeping my elbow down more and don't start elbow-high on the take back. It's a faster, simpler setup and gives better balance and control of racket path on the run.
