    Hi, I was wondering who people would say is the best dragflicker in terms of technique and what their technique is good for, power or placement. I have started to play around with the finer points of my dragflick to, mainly, develop more power so info on what is good about each dragflickers technique would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    In my eyes, Mink van der Weerden.

    He managed to generate enough power to break someone's stick in the World Cup and it isn't uncommon for him to repeatedly slam them into the top corners. I rate him as the best all-round flicker in the game at the moment.

    Mink is indeed very good. One other that I rate very high is Justin Reed-Ross. His flick is so fast he doesn't need to be very accurate because you simply do not have time to react.

    Completely agree. Reid-Ross was brilliant at the World Cup.

    Sandeep Singh of India and Chris Ciriello of Australia were also really good.

    Ciriello tends to go low into the keeper's right side, but it's so powerful not much can be done about it...

    Thanks for the replies have mainly looked at Zeller and v. d. Weerden for dragflick technique as to me they generate the most power but I will definitely have a look at Reid Ross, Ciriello and Sandeep.

    This would be quite a list for all of them....
    Taeke Taekema is always a good one for watching technique as he was used in alot of tutorials i have and adidas slow mo adverts which are good to study for learning

    I would say Reid-Ross. His penalty corners are full of power. Nuff said
