Thanks for the reply, but what exactly is muscle memory. And why isn't the flatter spin important? Do not take this as an insult, but a mere of trying to gather as much info to help me improve. Does the speed of your shot slow down when it is fluttering as opposed to spinning like a frisbee? or is it quite the opposite?
