As long as we get the ball to the right succeeding spot, how it gets done doesn't really matter.  We've always just done the math, then hustled to the succeeding spot and spotted the ball.  But, always have the H checking the math and the spot, and the L holding the enforcement spot until the enforcement is complete and correct.

There may be "Endless" ways to "skin a cat", whose effectiveness is determined by the results they produce, which in this instance seems to be arriving at the correct succeeding spot as promptly, convincingly, effortlessly, with an absolute absence of confusion, delay or any form of unnecessary consternation or concern.

Yeah but whenever I see a guy stepping off each year (5 10 or 15) I think he must not be paying attention to how we teach this. What else doesn't he know?

Very legitimate concern, and a universal issue, Iím afraid.  We just keep trying to show the best techniques, and hope for the best.
