Real quick - what's ptd.? And I've been watching more videos, and pros with a large double bend seem to have little to no scc. here's one good example when you break it into slow motion http://www.tennisplayer.net/public/s...enterSide1.mov
. I'd say it's because the forearm is not "dead" and left hanging to get whipped up to speed, and because it seems that with a double bend the arm above the elbow and the shoulders/torso move as one unit, essentially removing the top half (and starting half) of the whip. Am I just seeing this because it's two in the morning?haha
