good luck

From the sounds of it, you are leaving the lip maybe with a bit of a toeside edge causing a slight spin???

Thanks for the replies guys.

I'm a bit confused between the last two messages. The two statements in bold contradict each other, no?

cadencesdad, you are correct about the goofy/counterclockwise thing. I'm kind of flying slightly 'backwards'.
