    ok hit my 2nd ever 180 just now did it by standing sideways at the line instead of strait on. is there something about that stance that makes it a better or easier shot for 18s my first one came with a 3/4 stance at the oche. just curious cause if this works better then I will stay like this , it is a bit uncomfy for me but seems more stable and seems to work better.

    I've never found standing straight on to work well, I think because you're throwing across the body.

    Standing side on will make you a little bit closer to the board than standing straight on.

    I believe John Part wrote a great article on standing sideways and why so many do it....I'd have to search for it though and am out of time...
