Did you need bottles filled with water just in case the pucks caught fire?
Your video reminded me of something that I don't think has been mentioned yet. Your quick transition from backswing to downswing.
This is another way to get power (just a bit more) If you extend the muscles and then quickly contract them they will contract faster, and add more power to the shot (similar to pulling an elastic band quickly, then letting go) If your muscles are not trained to do this though it increases chances of injury.
Thanks for getting those up here, now we just need to get you a radar gun so we can compete
Every day I go out and shoot I am hitting new top speeds! and adding more blisters to my hands, even with gloves on (and tape to cover up the existing blisters)
