    Default Toe line and hands/tip and rip

    Do the hands have to stay outside the toe line? When coiling, do the hands arc back or go straight back?

    When trying to incorporate tip and rip/snap the barrel into the swing, during the tipping does the barrel go behind or infront of helmet?

    I think the questions are related.(?)

    In a video about front arm mechanics(which was very good) on another thread( maybe it could be reposted here), the instructor take two swings near the end of the video. One slow and one full speed. On the slow speed swing demonstrated, she tips the barrel behind the head and in the full speed swing, she tips the barrel in front of her head.

    This is the video of Rachel Folden. Near the end of video (4:20) she takes two swings. Observe and explain the barrel.
