    2hbh - up high

    I find it hard to hit my 2hbh when it is around shoulder height and above. I always don't get it out of the middle or frame it. Also even if I do hit it well I lack the power and penetration because I don't have an top spin on it. How can I beef it up a bit more and hit it in the sweet spot?
