...and now we have the flipper

After much playing around trying to get it I've finally got the action for the flipper working. I've spent ages trying to figure it out, discovered the "Baffler" on the way, but in the end all I had to do was move my thumb the other way and there it was... With only a slight variation (gripping the ball with two more fingers) I can also perform the Clarrie Grimmett flipper action, which is supposed to give more spin than the more orthodox Benaud/Jenner/Warne version with just the two fingers. It needs a lot of work before it's worth bowling though, the ammounts of spin I'm getting are pretty piss-poor.
