I have made the -28 pass last year a handful of times but due to never really dialing it in and back issues from slack hits I spent last fall and this spring at -22.
This past Fri and Sunday I made it around 4 ball at -28 and feel like it will go down soon.
Initial issue fixed was giving up the lean/angle too soon, now I am staying on the lean a little too long carrying a lot of speed into 1ball
I usually do really well with a progressive gate dropping in gradually from the glide, however as it has been stated here before in similar threads at -28 there is a more intense lean early. Matt Rini calls it the 'Lean/Angle ratio -if your not familiar say at -22 or -32 for that matter if your lean angle is 4/10 intensity it needs to ramp up to 5 or 6/10 for the shorter line. Agree? Tried this?
The problem at -28 or any shorter line length is that its Faster..............duh. So obviously the tendency is to rush the turn, pull to long ect. I need to:
1) Find the right amount lean/angle intensity needed for -28 versus -22
2) Find the optimal place to give up that load for the early edge change needed at -28 but stay on the handle outbound.
I have watched every video out, video'd myself, gotten video coaching from Brooks Wilson and endless advice on the dock and boat but at real time it's not the same putting it all together -can you relate?
