It made an immediate difference in my game, particularly in "gathering focus" and "triggering" subconscious control. Doesn't need to be real long - mine is maybe a second, but makes a much bigger difference than that would suggest.
Makes total sense to me. It seems like it would give time to focus on the shot more than just rushing into the forward stroke. Thank you for the tip I'll definitely be working on that and seeing how it changes my control.
