Ok, I tried my first couple of batwings last year with no luck. I thought I would bust out a few attempts last weekend and see what happened. They felt a bit better, but I'm still getting worked pretty good.

I'm trying a slower progressive edge (cut too hard last year and was throwing them way out into the flats) and really trying to load up in the trough. I also tried to keep the handle in more on the way up as I felt like I was getting too stretched out last year.

So they felt better and I was starting to get a couple back down, but I'm still getting stalled out at the top. It gets thrown back but then it's just like I get stuck there until I come crashing down on my butt/back. Any thoughts on how to approach this differently? I know video would help but I don't have any yet.

Oh, and the other thing I think might help with giving you a visual...I feel like I'm more toes to the sky instead of nose down which might be part of the issue.

Tips?
