So I must be terribly confused, which would result in me being wrong for A LOT of years concerning this topic. (Some low hanging fruit there for you @joel)
I am LFF. I hold the handle with left palm down, right palm up. As stated previously, I have been coached by a lot of excellent skiers/coaches. Not one coach or skier has ever said, hey it would help if you had the correct grip.
Question? (Dwight Schrutt) Is there a correct grip? I “thought” my grip position was correct in this ski community.
Question? Does it matter? To honor another topic on this forum, “myth busters” I am going to try this “reversed” grip starting this season. Depending on the result, I may continue with it.
It seems to me there probably is not a “correct” grip position, but just a position on the handle that feels comfortable to the skier. It’s like what foot you ski forward. When I was learning to slalom back in the day, I was kicking a ski. I would kick the ski that didn’t have the RTP on it. I could “ski” with either foot forward doing this, but trying deep water start, it became very apparent LFF was what I needed to do to be successful getting out of the water.
Just another crazy variable to think about while running the slalom course.
