    for left bashes its all about the bottom turn, the setup is more important than the actual slash. a really vertical hooked bottom turn is gonna lead to a vertical bash. And as for left barrels, drop in deeper than you think you should, still try to stall as much as possible, and once your in there run it out like hell. you'll find that you can get deeper barrels backside, cause your pigdoging. For all of my best left barrels, i didnt think was any way i would make the drop and make the barrel, but trust me, you will surprise yourself.
