              Hopping is not smooth. Just learn how to go left to right and right to left. Practice practice practice.

                                        In a world of YT madness, here we have a bastion of Wisdom.
                                        Some (ok, a lot of) people can tell you what the pros do... what they observe others do. Only a very few actually can tell you from experience how to perfect a thing. I can, and I can see that these guys know what's important in shooting. I don't like the hop in general... but keeping it very low and quick is quite a bit better.

                                          The secret to the hop is keeping it very low, springy, explosive. If you didn’t like it in the past, it was probably because you were watching people who weren’t doing it right
