The first is known as”The Slider”. The slider is my favorite sort of throw. It should be everybody’s default throw to start out every inning. Once you have mastered”The Twist”, you may realize that your bag lands on the board, but then slides diagonally across the board. The blocker is performed when the thrower lands the bag right in front of the pit, blocking the path to the hole and making the opposing player adjust from a slider to another strategy. It’s great for defense in addition to offence, since it’s a safe throw and lands on the board to get a point, while defending the gap against the opponent.
The next throw is known as the”Push”. If it is possible to set a blocker in front of the hole, the opponent can’t simply slip it in without putting yours in as well. In addition, the blocker is placed in an ideal position for you to”push” it in with your next throw, which should have restricted arc to attain more slide.
The final throw is”Air Mail”, which is the toughest throw. This is only putting it straight through the hole, over each of the other bags. This throw is mostly accomplished by accident. While attempting an airmail shot or a slider, the bag may have too much power and may slide behind or bounce over the hole. In the event you or your opponent provide a backboard, you now have a simple target. The backboard provides immunity behind the hole, thus a strong shot that would typically bounce or slide from the rear of the board can now be used to hit the”Backboard”.
This is the opposite of”The Push” that is landing a bag prior to the hole and with a slider to push the bag into the hole. The Backboard can be achieved with any kind of shot. It only increases the likelihood of bouncing a bag into the hole.
The Last Tip: Practice
Exercise is the best way to boost performance in any area. The best part of this game is it is easy to build, set up, and play. It’s a casual game which can be practiced with friends at an outdoor gathering, or on your own with only a box and pair of bags. If someone is trying to get into competitive play, Bags is a great game to practice at any time. I use two sets of bags which are 2 unique colours, and play against myself to practice the four kinds of throws in a realistic scenario.
