I'm a right handed thrower. Should I load the lead line on my left shoulder or my right? Looking for distance.

Lead line goes over the same shoulder your rope is tied to.

I throw right handed, that style. I had a Filipino dude show me how to throw when I was in my early 20's. That dude could throw a net better then anyone I have ever seen, he was amazing with a net. He taught me everything I know about nets.

Maybe that's why I don't get a full spread, net is 14' tho? I tie rope to my left wrist, hold net in left hand, bite lead line between the leads, flip lead line over right arm, shake it down a little to hold in my right hand. Twist left and spin back to my right and throw.
Guess I'm too old for new tricks?

Triple load method



How to analyze your non-pancake throw



And one thing about your form after release, the hand the rope is tied to should still be at shoulder level, the other at waist level.

First time I put a lead line in my mouth that had some hot jelly on it was the end of that crap. Over the shoulder for me.

I've put lead lines in my mouth and gotten jelly fish remnants on face and chest. The last time I put a lead line in my mouth, I loosened a couple teeth.

Pretty costly to fix.

Won't do that again.

As a kid throwing a net off Pickins all the time, we always loaded up with the lead line in your mouth... Most days I looked like a freak due to all the jellyfish stings on my chest and face!!!:D
