Re: Thrust?

Jeezus, way to highjack a fucking thread. Take a conversation about turning curves into straight lines with 2 handers and turn it into throwing curves from straight lines with single handers. Get outta here you bunch of single handed wankers, this is for the boys with the big sticks.

Re: Thrust?

Bernd its not a term I have ever used in teaching either, I think its too indistinct or subtle or I'm too thick. In the case of Al's book I have always struggled to understand what he means by "thrust" (why I asked). Sexyloops has for years been a battleground for definitions and the words that clar...

Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Re: Thrust?

From Al. "The term 'thrust' is applied energy during a movement, to some degree, defines momentum that directs the oncoming line path or position. 'Thrust' during a move allows a line to move toward a intended placement or path. 'Thrust' is the casters intentional effort to create/aim momentum. Why ...

Re: Thrust?

I have done as you have suggested Lasse and if he gets back to me lets see if its any clearer than it is in his book. I was looking for other interpretation of what people think it means by it.
