eye-level is not last resort.
taking ball on the rise is easier said then done, a heavy spun ball bounces up and goes through a waist high strike zone so fast (sweet spot even faster), that a clean hit becomes difficult.
the apex of the bounce is where the ball travels the slowest vertically, allowing clean hits.
what is the one factor that prevents players from hitting high 1hbh well?
Hint - it's not 'strength'. Anybody can backhand a ball 50 yards, no matter how high it is.
Power is NEVER the problem?
The question is - WHAT is?
