>>> Have you watched Epstein's first tape? It does a good job of addressing this area. As I've said before, I like Mike from the ground to the shoulders but you are unparalleled from the shoulders to the bathead IMO. When it comes to tying both together, Tom makes sense to me. <<<
Hi Mark

Yes, I have studied it a few times. He says his method promotes a “slingshot” of the back-side. I agree, it does. That is s concept to project a linear motion like throwing a ball. It is not conducive for generating rotational movement for swinging a bat-head. --- When I talked to him regarding this, he said he did not agree with a circular hand-path. He demonstrated a linear hand-path.

He may have changed his mind regarding the hand-path, but his tape still promotes the slingshot effect. I just do not agree with it.
