Changing blades to flatter will hurt my high game no?
(And thanks for the youtube vid above. I'll play around with wrist roll over in the next few pick ups I play; probably won't be using it gametime anytime soon yet though)
What curve are you currently using?
And yes the follow through is important for grounder shots. I use the same motion as a hard pass, but I put a little more strength into it.
Weird that I also found grounder shots much easier with a higher flex stick, over my usual whippy ones.
