I did it! I beat my record with a new awesome personal record of 16437! It felt amazing! I got the Powerball screaming! However, disasters of disasters, I did not hit the record button on my webcam and I was surprised when I found out that I had not recorded the session.
Here's a picture of the Powerball score:

I have been practicing last week, lingering around 141** to 142** all of last week, and then this morning I decided to change the way I Powerball. After watching the videos over and over for some the top Powerballers, I decided to get my other arm (the one without the Powerball) in extreme motion as well as my feet. This is what I noticed with some of the top scorers. I also did another in an effort to get a higher score. I turn wrist slightly from where I usually keep it to allow me to pulse my arm as quick as I could more horizontally than before, paying attention to the rythym of the Powerball, and as Dennis does, pull the arm with a later motion.
I did everything right one time and the score was 16437! Unfortunately, I had failed to get it caught on video. The run actually was after quite a few other runs, and after I did it, I tried few times to get "everything right" again, but I was getting tired. I know that since it is such a high score that I will have to provide video evidence for at 98% of the score or higher.
Although I have explained some of major parts of the technique here, there are things that I left out, but the good news is that I have some added confidence that soon 15K+ is going to be possible for me soon. I was actually down a little with a cough and cold today, but when I get better (tomorrow), I will get back on my goal with more ambition.
Next time I'll have the webcam recording!
