Note: moving forward I will only refer to a kick/skid/whatever as a kick.I've noticed that I attract more skids with a rolling ball, than with the cb struck with more velocity
the cb "climbing" definitely seems to be the thing..you don't think speed could mitigate that tho?
Nope... You still can endure the joy of a kick with a greater shot speed. However, on the vertical (top spin) axis the detrimental effects are generally just a loss of energy transfer. (I'm speaking in absolutes for sake of description.) ...so on a high pace shot, the bad is lost within the excessive force. When you roll the CB, the pace is low, and the effect is more apparent.
Now on a horizontal kick (skid), the climbing effect will still throw the OB off typical path regardless of power.
Now it could be argued that the encreased force behind the CB / OB contact will lessen the 'climbing' effect. I wouldn't argue against that train of thought, but I wouldn't begin to know how to validate the opinion.
