    Hooked up with a younger more proficient and athletic player (he has a 30 percent win rate in a San Diego 4.5 league) and held my own in a couple casual practice sets. Well maybe more than held my own, taking both sets (7-6, 6-4). I am the white guy in gray longsleeves and these are some of my...

    Am interested in knowing more about the head not moving in the right direction. Will agree those frame by frames look, gulp, unusual.

    The Swing speeds are definitely off. The owner has admitted they generally understate the speed (at least 10% low) because it averages the speed of the ball in flight rather than peak speeds, and I agree at times it shows some really high rates that don’t feel particularly deserved. The issue...

    Feels great actually… feel at contact is excellent (except for the mishits) as is the sound. Really, they are both much improved over the last week.

    It is very tempting to just post my best, but gonna keep it real and unedited. Here is one of my last baskets for this session. I can see the toss is still not optimally placed in my “wheelhouse” every time, but moving it a bit to the right has helped a ton and I will keep trying to migrate it...

    I have made a lot of progress this week since I originally posted. Perhaps I will post today‘s practice after SwingVision finishes processing, but retrospectively I think the best advice I got here was “toss in the right place”. The reason is that some portion of my “problems” stem from a bad...

    Yeah I don’t want to deal with an impingement, and I see what you mean about that aspect of my technique is not fundamentally changed (yet). I will check back in next week.

    Got in a groove today. Grip, yes. Knee bend, a little, Toss, improving. Not contacting quite at the right angle (pointing up). Still foot faulting. But I am tapping into a new power source….could it be ISR?

    Nobody is disagreeing with you Chas! Really appreciate your concern for my health.

    Not sure I take your meaning, but I did things that look similar to the video at the 13 minute mark. I only had it in the back of my mind so it looked like more aggressive versions of the first couple things he runs through. The movement was basically moving the racket from a pointing up...

    Wish I had videoed today….was rallying with my wife casually, she is coming back from a layoff. Decided to mimic the one thing that looked like a drill on Racquetflex—position the racket close to the contact point and just internally rotate the shoulder alone. I expected to just dribble the ball...

    On the Raquetflex video they seem to advise a progression where the student uses only ISR starting from something close to a contact point and then holding the follow through after contact. Then doing the same but starting from trophy position and adding in the other motions. Is this the best...

    I must have this ISR witchcraft!

    Was extremely windy today but we persevered for three sets. Here are a few of the best rallies (I am in gray shirt). I nearly bageled him yet felt I really had to work for it. My other partner PK (original video and a few other appearances) messed up his calf so is out of action for awhile...

    Totally agree Pumpkin…gotta fix it. I played three sets tonight and on the less terribly placed tosses I could really feel things click into place. Will take some time to get it right but I am too much of an addict to let this prevent me from playing. But get it right I will!
