Setup:

A handler, A, starts with the disc near the sideline. D1 puts on a line-trap force. In this example, D1’s left hand is the ‘force’ hand (nothing gets passed it), while the right hand is the ‘pressure’ hand. A reset, B, stands 5-8m away, perpendicular to the sideline, facing A, marked by D2.
