    Where should the weight be on the blade while doing a twizzle?

    Hi,
    Where should the weight be on the blade (near the front, near the middle, or near the back of the blade) while doing an backward outside twizzle? Please be specific - that is, when you are turning from backward to forward should the weight near the back of the blade and then when you turn from forward to backward should the weight be near the front of the blade? Is it the same kind of weight transfer when you do a 3-turn? Thanks
    PS if you are not sure, please don't answer. Answer only if you are certain that you know.
    Thanks,

    No, it is not the same as doing a 3 turn. The weight should be just behind the spinning sweet spot to be effective. I think about it as a traveling beginner spin position
