WOOOHOOOO, so pleased for you Jez, it really is a great achievement. GO UK!
Im new to powerballing but those are the kind of scores that really makes me want to improve, nice one!!!
Keep at it, someones gotta challenge Akis!!!
Hi Fellow Ballers
Just posted video to Powerball so it shouldn't be too long until it is up and on the forum. Calmed down a bit now but still hyperactive, still can't believe it
Well it started off this morning just like any other session although l had been breaking in a new rotor on an older ball something l picked up on at Telford in speaking to Akis and watching how meticulously he cared for his rotors and support bands when cleaning. Ball seemed great and finally hands were not sore anymore. Started of scoring high 14K and then decided pretty early on to do a 90's run but Ed tec, l know unusual for me and to my shock got 19486. I then started breaking 15K relatively easy and then from no where hit the biggest Hot mode in the world!!!! with the following series;
15803, 15807, 15822, 15825, 15850, 15894, 15917, 15938, 15943 and then 16013 and then 16014K
Just crazy, but so happy
The main difference as well is that l have slightly changed my technique so l now can vibrate my whole body across the floor very similar to Akis, it is difficult to describe you just know it when it happens, it is like pulsing the arm but the whole body is going.........
Keep spinning all and lets all have a massive record breaking year
A trully awesome session there Jez. I'll try and get the video and score up asap.
Hmmm. Getting error messages here at work so can't upload it i'm afraid. Love the video though of the 16013, brilliant.
I'll try and get it uploaded once i'm home, though homefully Enda or Tim will be able to do it sooner.
Really making me want to powerball tonight even though I know I shouldn't. Tomorrow is my aim for big scores.
Cheers Tstering, hope to see you at that 15.5K soon l know you can do it.

For a long time I've thought, (as I said in Telford), that the ideal place to hold the Powerball is near one's centre of gravity, so that the ball can be kept as still as possible while the body moves around it. Tstering showed this excellently I think in his recent rise towards 15.3k, and you've been doing it for a while too. And, of course, so has Akis. My arm tends to move away from my body, which is limiting me I think, but a change can't be sudden. I'm just trying to do it slowly, changing the position of my arm during endurance runs for example.

Thanks for doing that, can't explain how good that felt and it is really quite funny!!!!
