i wish you put a "kinda" option up there. It depends on how you like your head. I use primers, and those are pretty pinched. Its like stick stringing, its all about preference.

Pinching your head will effectively end the warranty on most products, and if your hands are so bad that you need a pinched head to help you maintain control of the ball, than you're probably also going to have a hard time catching anything with a pinched head.

It really depends on your style of play and how well you play, and preference.

I played most of this last year with a extremely pinched head, E3, mainly due to face/offs. I was pushing the barrier of illegality all the way through the season, and was probably quite illegal towards the end seeing as now the ball does not come out in an upright position and the top measurement is like 6 inches even. I loved the head for facing off until it became flimsy. I had to unpinch it a few times. But its all on style of play. For F/O I loved it, for ISO's I loved it, catching, not always a fan because it often hit sidewall, and for groundballs, started to get flimsy.

Pinching has also been known to make stiff heads, turn to butter, and be super soft. I would reccoment going out and buying something thats a little more pinched rather than pinching yourself.

Im now playing with a Bionic thats slightly pinched, and its on my pole and my shortie and I love them. But again, it was a little wide for face and does me great now.

Again, depends on how you play, what position, purpose and your skill.

I've seen defenders that love wide heads that are super stiff, and ive seen ones that play with pinched heads like E3's, like I did for a short while, not as good as playing with an X2.

Ive seen F/O people with super flimsy and stiff.

Ive seen the same with attack, with wide and narrow, its all preference and adapted to how you play.

typically attack are gonna play with a pinched flimsy head
middies-little more ridgide, and a moderate pinch
defense-wide and stiff

however as far as pinching goes as stated previously it really does void warranties and can lead to the breaking of heads...i pinched a couple of tritons and they snapped at the throat causing them to break. I liked pinching when i first started playing, but upon improving cradling and dodges, i realized its the same with a wide head, its all about skill...the better you are at cradling and dodging the less you need a pinch. However i do play with a torque, and faceoff with it so it has become borderline illegal not on purpose however i still enjoy using it. I love the torque it pinch is perfect and it is stiff until you faceoff with it and it becomes a noodle..however it does tend to go back to its original shape somewhat. Overall...i would suggest getting a moderatly pinched stick (torque or something with that kind of pinch) and practice.

A) Swim moves suck, even for shorties. Its a good way to expose your ribs and have them broken, plus its not effective.

B) You really shouldn't be swim moving with a D-pole. Most D-poles are taught to "Walk the Dog" as its called. Swim moving with a D-pole is somewhat...dumb.

C) Pinching a Head isn't going to keep the ball in your stick that much better anyway. Just get a better pocket.

Jaron's assessment of the swim move is spot on. With one exception....Nate Robitshek. The old people on this board should know what I'm talking about.

Swimming on good defensive players, really bad idea. Swimming on poor defensive players, still kind of a bad idea.

I swam every once in a while, never got hit in the ribs, lukcy me.

If you try to swim a college defenseman, the results won't be pretty.

Split dodge, roll... anythng really. Be quick on your feet, if not and you thik you can take them, just protect your stick and run through them. If not, work on dodges and ways to get around, or get the ball t someone else.

Storts can probably give you a better answer but with a long pole, you dont really need to be dodging. And the best move to pull on attackmen is just a well timed face dodge.
