IME, the straighter you pull, the straighter you throw. How straight is up to you. But if you're round housing a good bit, you can probably do better by working on it. Kinda like cracking a whip. (If...

I don't lock pole holes so I can't give any input there. If you look at their spec sheet it'll guide you through that. (Or you can call them. They're very informed and helpful.) I order the 800 and...
