> If you see high outside heater, you keep back shoulder up and lift front arm and shoulder which interrupts sit and gets you more upright with more level swing as weight/axis goes forward more. You get plenty of load because you have stretched the torso more up and you don't need so much sit/leg drive to power the swing. The high ball "elevates itself" when you match the plane this way.
So tom if you were going to set for an up and away or down and away and then adjust to the other which would you pick 1st
