It's a very very basic isolation and I read somewhere how to do it or atleast how to practice it but can't remember where. When I try it I get a lot of up and down motion to the ball.

Meanwhile... i was once told that pretending to turn a door knob (your ball being the knob) that it helped getting that iso. That bit has helped me get it._________________accomplishments are transient

But you see some people who can not just turn it, but look like their moving their hand all around it, front, back, and to the side. I just have a hard time keepng it from moving up and down. I'm constaly looking at my girlfriend saying "can you see it moving?"

It seems that those when I get to those blind spots is when my hand decides to move.
