I normally like just about everything you say, but I disagree on this one. I think it did teach people things - and more than "this is bad, this is good." Perhaps because you understand the material well enough it was obvious to you, so you didn't learn anything you didn't already know, but I think others learned from this video.
And I hear what you're saying, but quite honestly the "hit down more sharply" concept seems to me to be even more basic than the video I made. Move the ball back and you hit down more, typically. Move it up more and you shallow it more. I think that's fairly basic. Maybe I'm wrong. I agree that a video on CG location could explore the area more - the both of us can hit a low shot with the ball off our left foot if we slide both CGs forward.
In other words, I think you want a different video. I may make it some time, but this video is still a valid video, I think. Or I hope so, anyway.
The one thing I wish I'd done was to show someone not sliding their hips forward and "running out of right arm" because you'd see someone with very level shoulders. That, however, sounds like another video altogether. One that I can tie in to elbow positions (pitch, punch, push).
