From what I understand so far, the first key to success is a good initial throw. It also seems that while a good throw comes more naturally and consistently to a more advanced player, they still may have times when they struggle to get a decent throw. What generally determines the quality of a throw is the strength, straightness, and string tension.
This is all based on my current understanding, so please correct me if I’m wrong. Or elaborate on anything if you so desire.
Now on to a few questions. Any answer no matter how short or long is very helpful.
- Are there any tricks or tips that you use or have used when trying to get a good frontstyle and/or breakaway throw? Both helpful and unhelpful are good, just specify which.
- What cues you use to gauge the quality of your throw? (what you see, feel, hear, etc.)
- How do you gauge your string tension now vs. when you were first starting out?
Thank you for any and all answers!
