then you should be more exact with your contact, and also still get strongly
into the ball (which helps you to soak up and counter much of the spin effects).
I think the early acceleration based on usual balls is screwing up the response to these kind of side spin balls. The balls are also faster, so that could be inducing a panic response.
I just added some lead to my frame now to see how that works. Will test it tomorrow.
