As far as your BH goes, the original post almost makes me think you are trolling. What you are doing is almost the opposite of what you should, at least according to the DGCR consensus. You should be keeping your arm speed, but getting rid of the run-up and some reachback.
Haha! It was a revelation I had when I was sucking it up in the woods a week ago. I realized I'm doing everything wrong! And yes, the FH has become a mainstay in the woods just 'cause my backhand sucks so bad.
