    Change the force as the drill progresses. Start with a line force (different depending on which stack you are in) and progress to a straight up mark.

    If you are cutting deep (position 1 or 4) you become active when the rest cut (Player A or B, respectively) starts moving. Drift in towards position 3 and then strike deep. This reduces the distance the deep throw has to cover AND gives the the thrower more space to run into.

    Plant your foot and bust deep as the reset cut catches the disc. By the time they have stopped, established a pivot and assessed where they need to throw to you will be plenty deep enough to reel in their throw.

    If the cutter is too deep, pump a fake communicating with them to cut under at 45 degrees.
