Yeah, me too. I finally tried the deep S curves on a black diamond after looking at the diagram that SW did (can't remember which thread). It showed braking happening at the top half of the C, which had never clicked with me before. I tried it this week and it works great. Only problem I'm having is if I get out of the rhythm and start braking at the bottom of the C again, it's very difficult to correct.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
