After working on my slapper for nearly two hours the other night, the "drive through with the bottom hand" thing is huge.

I found that keeping the bottom arm straighter and bottom hand lower on the shaft was big. So much that I added a couple inches to my stick to make it more comfortable with wider hands. I feel like I'm flexing my bicep and forearm muscles, not dead straight but closer to 150 degrees or so, and then with my windup it's more vertical than it was before. Kind of like my golf swing, seems better when I'm more vertical and less horizontal.

Not perfect, but better. Maybe approaching respectability.
