Hold the point, change the pick-up

Q Having worked hard on my hold points, should I change them at different grounds?
Ed Chambers, Somerset

A Your hold points should generally remain the same. You do not need different sets of hold points for different grounds. However, what can change is your visual pick-up points due to the differing backgrounds. Quite often it tends to be the Low House targets that can cause problems, usually L3, L4 and L5 because of what’s going on in the background – for example the tree line, hedge line and purpose made banks. In this case, rather than change my hold points I always find it better to look back in the window for the target, which gives me greater visual acquisition and still allows me to react to the target flash and start my move.
