Hopefully newer players who think you need to walk down the teepad backwards to get proper reach back will watch this and stop doing that ridiculous looking approach.

Unfortunately, Dunipace just copyrighted the whip, so no one will be allowed to do it for the next 20 years.

It's fantastic and clear, and has a nice overlay of the shoulders/arms in bird's eye view. Hard to be accessible like that without being technically incorrect somewhere, good job.

That said if your body isn't in the right position/balance it's going to be real hard to get your arms to do that...but getting your arms to do that is still the goal.

So how do you get that increased acceleration with the whip?
Concentrate on more power at that point of the throw?
If that's the case, crazy acceleration at the release, won't that put your accuracy in jeopardy?
Aren't most of us doing that already?
I don't understand the difference between a sling and a whip.

That is always what I assumed was the goal of the "reach way back" and why I think more videos like this need to happen. Just come out and say WHY you need to reach back as far as you can. I like to know how mechanics work, not just to be told reach way back (so this other secret thing will happen). It's the same advise as keeping your head down or make sure your plant foot is always parallel to your target, both are not the best advice UNLESS you actually know WHY you're being told these things. And sometimes head up is good and sometimes toe pointed in or out is what you need to execute the shot.

I see a lot of beginners going way overboard with backwards run ups in order to reach way back with very poor results most of the time. Their just trying to do what they're told without really knowing the true reason or true goal.

The main things are load your hips, turn your shoulders, trust your line, pull straight through, knees bent..... actually it is complicated and hard to sum up but still, more videos about the true mechanics of the backhand throw need to come out.

Catapults/trebuchets use a sling to whip.



Seppo "reaching back".


I just swing back and forth like a pendulum, if I want more distance I swing back longer away from my center of gravity moving forward.

I am constantly telling players that the giant reachback does nothing in the woods of Virginia but endanger trees.
