Hello ZT,

Terry's SF has been around 0.79 with 1.02-SR (I'd call that competition SR). Interesting for me the SF in his first phase from just starting the hand's hook to nearly vertical is 0.8 and...

Hello ZT,

just a remark. Shinji's Slipfactor in his MGFS-Video is around 0.29. Yes, it's not a competetion-stroke. What astonished me most: Seems he sets his catch- and first press-phase slower than...

Hello ZT,



Yes, but what is best (easiest to learn?) to be taught and have the next improvement in mind?

And as mentioned sometimes, how to decide to pick a single point (and which?) from one of...

Hello ZT,



Not for a single stroke but as estimated average:

SF = [SPL x (SW-Sh)-(PL-PO)]/(PL-PO)

SF: SlipFactor
SPL: Strokes Per Length

Hello MF,

sorry, can't get the relation to ZT's example. That's a really different kind of stroke than the one in Suzanne's pulling-hints. (Straight arm recovery, straigth arm pull (does she?),...

Hello LoveContraption,

just additionally to Inge's very good hints. Don't think too much in degrees. Try to rotate as little as possible. This means a relaxed recovery with elbow not behind the...

Hello ZT,

Hello ZT,


Yes, Suzanne's video and her hints are great! But I think RamTI's issue is also a bit more fundamental in the BS-Basics. The Uchimura drills are really good for a stronger core (tested...

Hello scribe3,

may be you're right. But what do you mean by "amount of"? Most times a too less rotation angle is not the problem (45°-60° should be far enough, if you don't have problems with your...
