Something I noticed about David Lingmerth's swing - rear foot flared *in* a tad around P6-P7.

It works for him, just wanted to point it out as I've never seen that before. His P6, hands are a little forward of the right thigh, impact hands are well forward. Is this sort of an anti-fat swing?

That seems unusual to me as well.  His heel is clearly off the ground at impact, but what strikes me as odd is that somehow he keeps the outside of the front part of his right foot on the ground at impact and pivots.  The right leg action reminds me a lot of a baseball swing.

Strong grip, cut procedure.  Camera angle is also a little behind him, too far to his right.  The way the pressure in his feet are working to flare the toe in is due to his upper center tipping back, or you could say the way the pressure is working tips the upper center back a2_wink.gif  Definitely not anti-fat swing, head moves back to try and create 2nd axis tilt.  Not saying he hits shots fat, but if you wanted to start hitting more fat/thins shots, tipping the head back and spinning the hips would be a great way to start lol

Ah I see. The reason I mentioned anti-fat is that his P6 and P7 look so good, if I'm interpreting it right.

i seem to remember hearing them comment on his background in hockey. I could be thinking of the wrong player but as a prior hockey player myself we tend to have a bit of a different footwork and handwork to our swings.
