    Good luck on that throw. If I might ask, will you tell about this throw. I need a stick right throw. It's o.k. if you explained it on another page. I can look for it if you prefer. A

    So, you this is an under handed throw? Just making sure I followed the posts right and that I don't bite on someone's curve ball. I, too, throw a three-finger from SL1.

    Have not been out for two months . Shot 3 hands at Foxwoods with the last 2 at an empty table. Nothing too heavy - just wanted to validate shots with my 2 grips.In fact the 3 finger scored on its hand 4 tens with two Hard. Next hand the 2 finger hit the point 4 & 6&8' s but could never take off.
    A good day. Low rebounds - looked decent in the air- need to get more fluid.

    Until next week.....

    Gee about a year since last posting lol Of course you have to keep DeMango entertained or he will take off again. Shot is fine - nice practice session - toss looked and was good.Have not talked with DM in a while- plan to check in with him.He tosses UH and has a sweet Ice Tong toss which is hard to master.

    Got some dice from Heavy - Midwest dice that is stellar. On Howard's FB page. Moving forward......

    This is Barney

    Although the LID tries to get SL 1, when he shoots from SR he uses the Hoyt Wilhelm (HW) toss instead of the MP underhand toss. He gots heat at last two joints with (HW) because like the MP toss the LID tries to hit smooth area under pyramids. These two joints say they have new rules saying the LID must have both dices hit pyramids or they call no roll on him. They say smooth wall below pyramids is not considered part of the wall.

    In the lab working on AG toss, a less energy shot from SR1 than 2 finger UH Diagonal.

    AKA pincer. AKA Ice Tong.
