In this article we
will continue with the shot correction. Today we are going to write
some more about the finger position itself, As you can see in picture 1
(in front), the ball lies on the fingers, the palm is free, naturally,
because it is not needed for the ball rotation. In picture 1 (in the
back) we can see how we capture a sufficient ball surface with fingers
wide apart; this is also important for the ball rotation.
Pictures 2 and 3 show the palm and finger position which meets all the conditions for a correct scrap from the palm.
This can be seen on two videos.
As we can see in pictures 4 and 5 the ball left the wrist and the wrist
after the scrap is shown, although the pictures from this position do
not tell us much.
But if we take a look at the hand in the same position from the front
(picture 6), we can see that the forefinger and the middle finger are
the ones that determine the rotation and direction of the ball flight,
because they are the ones the ball leaves last.
To confirm this theory even more, I have added the wrist position after
the scrap in a ground plan (picture 7), where we can see that the
forefinger and the middle finger are the longest finger on the hand.
As I have already mentioned, it is important to capture the biggest
area possible; this mostly applies to these two fingers. As further
apart the forefinger and the middle finger are, the larger area is
captured and the more we manage the ball itself and its flight
