I was planning to go shoot some video today to start analyzing my rev rate, speed, axis tilt & rotation.

The directions I found say place a piece of tape on your PAP and run it to "above fingers"

I have 2 questions. Without the aid of my Pro Shop's tool how can I correctly locate my PAP for this? Second what does to above fingers mean? Is that just a straigh line of tape that would intersect the center grip line above the fingers at a right angle, or any angle? Also how far above the fingers (1/8", 2")

Thank you for a rapid response as I'd love to go shoot some video today.

To find your pap without any aid, i'd recommend the ball spinner example. Mark the first ring of oil, set it on a table, and slowly spin it by hand. Try to get the marked line as equal as possible while spinning it. You can then mark the very top of the ball and that would give you a pretty fair indication of where your pap is.

As far as marking the pap with a piece of tape, that is just a visual reference. Obviously the larger the reference the easier it is to see going down the lane. The point being the tape should be from the pap to just (1" or so) above the fingers but not so long that it gets into the flare of the ball.

Hope this helps.
