The US patent handle from bonzini is closer to a tornado handle (smaller). but even the standard handle is snakeable. really poor officiating in the nunes sven match.

As I said, ITSF meddling has caused this (derogatory move) to happen.

You try snaking with a cork ball !!

It's a matter of practice, I can do it with a cork ball (heavy one and light one) on my B90 fairly well with standard Bonzini handles (and also with the doorknob ones) even without a wrap. I've had a lot less success on ITSF tables, it's a matter of fine tuning though.

Anyway - Martyn, if you fancy some old school Bonzini action, come up to Bar Kick on a Thursday / Friday / Saturday. Of the 20-30 regulars there's usually 10 or on any of those nights, with a complete mixed bag of styles, and only a couple shoot snakes.
