Notice he still uses a bit of wrist action to sail the puck up. It's just a lot of practice to get it all down.

Now the most impressive was a former teammate who was just ridiculous with the flip pass. He could do it on the backhand every time.
It's a lot easier if you do it with a neutral curve. I used to use Sakic and found it slightly tougher to pull off. Right now I'm using Zetterberg/Cammy curve and I can really get a lot of height on my back hand passes/shots.
