Let's talk baton throwing.
I have noticed many new throwers holding the baton in the middle and twisting the wrist for extra thrust
As these throwers become more seasoned they inch down the length of the baton.
It seems more control is had at first holding the baton mid-baton. Palm up with a direct toss to the Kubb
I think if you can manage this toss it is good for short distance but then leaves no room for additional thrust
Holding the baton at the end of the baton and spinning it end over end with a top grip gives much more thrust, however the toss needs to be much more direct.
Many different throws are possible, you must choose and practice all different types before you are satisfied and comfortable with your ability.
Keep trying different moves in different situations.
Let me know in your comments how you throw and what you think best practice is....
Throw with confidence
