Angled, posed Instagram shot; it does look good with that filter.
Here’s the twist the subject refers to: this is so, when cradling one-handed, the ball can more easily sit in the lowest part of the pocket.
It will play like a 7/8 diamond traditional. I adjusted the shooters to the tension that feels about right, but Josh will re-adjust on his own to his liking.
Back shot; you can see how I made the diamond closest to the bottom a bit larger, for the modification I mentioned earlier.
Side view of pocket; punched in up near the shooting strings, where the ball sits naturally when horizontal.
Side view of pocket; punched in lower down in the pocket, where the ball would want to sit when cradling with one hand. The pocket should adjust depending on what you’re doing at the time.
