safe slice strike = press slice strike button, then release before strike.
In other word, it's the no-button strike ( = the safe strike), but used with some precharged slice spin.
In bonus, I had written "safe slice shor
t" instead of "safe slice shot", adding to the confusion ... Nadi madi
the safe shot isn't changed, only the safe slice shot, which means if you don't press the slice strike button before to do your last instant volley, it'll work same as before. And if you do, you won't get a kind of half dead ball anymore for free...About slice volleys
the change is minimal, only 20cm shorter in best case (ie: 100% net presence + 100% volley skill), and the speed of the volley shouldn't change (except possibly on some very low balls).
And in any case, this would make the slice volley a bit more dangerous, as the opponent as to step a bit more in to handle it, and if he steps in too early, you can do the normal volley that will give him more trouble.
A little reminder : topic5-17302.php
; it was Heinrich von Westphalen
complaining about the sliced volleys, who were too short for him, making him think it was the safe shot, so making them a bit more short shouldn't bring much easier passing...
