Just curious what you all feel is the best technique for swinging a maul. Mine is a 6 lb (I think I need an 8 now especially with all the Elm I have). Generally I drop the maul over my right shoulder, and swing. With tougher peices I'll step back a 1/2 step and step into the swing also. For the really tough, I'll start with the maul at about chest high, and get more of a round about swing that makes a full circle, but my accuracy goes down with that. I've also tried a more centerline swing with the maul start position straight behind my back so both arms make almost an identical path. This last seems the weakest swing, but is a bit easier on the right elbow. Any other technique suggestions?
