This, I believe, is the move that caused James Ernest to exclaim \"Look, a beautiful new hold!\". Surprisingly, I came by it in the same way - by practicing Back-arm Chestrolls.

There are two places in which you can hold (three, really) a ball at the shoulder. The first, and hardest to get out of, is between the clavicle and the shoulder muscles. the second, which I prefer, is just below the clavicle, just above the pectoral. If you lean back, you can balance a ball there, and a slight shift will move it in any direction you want.

The third, of course, is anywhere you want, if you catch the ball and hold it with your chin...

A nice way to get out of this move is to use your chin to push the ball off of the back of your shoulder, to be caught behind your back in a blind catch. It takes a bit of practice to get the catch right every time, but it's a nice one for audiences.
