Handles

Can someone give us the breakdown on handles/host many posts it takes to progress up?

What I've noticed is that:

Swilly = 0 - 2 Posts
Backhand = 3 - 5 Posts
Blade = 6 - 9 posts
Flick = 10 - 15 (maybe as high as 20) posts
High Release = 21 - 39 posts (maybe as low as 16, maybe as high as 41).
Hammer = 42 - 56 posts (maybe as low as 40 posts, maybe as high as 85)
Scoober = 86 - 90 posts (maybe as low as 57, maybe as 216)
Air Bounce = 217 to ??? (maybe as low as 91)
Others?
Executive Directory, (hey this system does have manual overrides apparently)

-A
P.S.  Blade before Flick?  Where is the push pass, drop kick, or Thumber?

Re: Handles

Push Pass is there,
so is "The Greatest" but as you can imagine, no one has achieved that rank yet.

Blade before Flick?

Blade before flick makes perfect sense to me - half of my forehands end up as blades and drill themselves down into the turf 10 yds short of the receiver because I get all excited seeing a most excellent cut to the flick side that I forget that it's an upwind throw that's way out of my range...

Re: Handles

That is not a blade.  That is a grounder.  Which is really below swill in my book and yes, I still throw some of those on occasion too :-).   

Blades are things of Glory.  Undefendable (to the defense or your teammates depending on the result and always, always nearly uncatchable, but highly effective if you can pull them off...

Re: Handles

Ah yes, grounders I am familiar with.  But consider a forehand that was intended to be a high, arcing outside-in bender, but gets flipped 90 degrees due to a crosswind and blades itself into the ground - that's something entirely different.  Extremely swilly.

Wasn't there a movie a while back called Blades of Glory?  Somehow, I don't recall it having anything to do with Ultimate...
