So you pop the ball down even with the crown,using the dead blow hammer head,then short start it with the starter shaft? Sorry I'm slow LOL.Nope, it works just like a slide hammer with the weight of the dead blow hammer starting the ball without having to hit it with your palm.
I started out with a ball, but after bruising my hand a bunch of times, I turned a mallet head, and transferred the metal parts over to it. No more bruised hands, and the mallet comes in handy from time to time.Nice, but why'd you use a plastic handle? Dress it up, go to the hobby shop,, get a wood ball.
I always just used "stater or short stater" never thought of the words dead blow needing to be being associated loading?
