Building a pell - or, how to not embarass yourself before you try out that new shot


If you're like me, it takes a loooooonnnngggg time between 'wanna learn that shot' and 'can actually throw new shot without shameful embarrassment'

So... a pell:


Just a few examples of how to build one cheaply and easily (many other ways as well)

On a more serious note, pells are a great way to build up muscle memory. If you practice new shots over and over on a pell, by the time you get to the real thing it should be instinct. Your body will just know what to do. Using a pell is also a good way to work on body mechanics. I really wish I had one, as of right now Javin and I just take turns hitting each other. The problem is Javin has the strength of a silver back...

Athron do you have/use a pell?

Getting ready to make one, but have used one for SCA. I'm going to build that portable metal pipe version in the link, I don't think my landlord wants me digging holes and such.

Looks like a half-day project at most.

Gonna use it to force me to add more lateral movement to my fighting.

I do, but then I have to return the favor.
