I have started doing this for the first time. I've been playing over 20 years and have played two games with new technique 102 and 51. It might be new bat it might be I've dropped down standard a little bit but I'm definitely much more comfortable with bat up technique. I've also coupled it with Palmer open/pointing down wicket stance. Wish I had tried these things years ago. However it is only two games and I will update again half way through season.
My stance using the technique is very narrow with feet quite close together. I try to stand tall and still. My front foot is straight on a leg side stump line. Back foot heel is on middle with foot at 45 degrees. I tap bat outside off. Bat is held vertical as bowler runs in with face of bat open facing point. I'm left handed and open batting. My front foot is on tip of toes barely touching the ground.

If you are talking about Gary Palmer's coaching, then speak to @jblowe as I am pretty sure he has been to Gary and rates him very highly mate?

Got to love Gary Palmer, top coach and top man. 

If you want to play a perfect on drive, or you struggle with swing, he is the man

first game of the season yesterday, batted with a more open stance than usual and profited particularly on the leg side. i scored at least 4 or 5 boundaries through fine leg/backward square leg as anything that strayed onto my pads was punished.

on the flip side, i struggled to drive through mid off, so had to settle for singles and twos in that area. maybe i opened up too much and it stopped me getting across outside off stump...

Thanks to @InternalTraining for the link to the coaching video.

I've adopted this stance at home in front of the mirror and in the only games I've played and have felt completely comfortable at the crease as a result. Certainly the turning of the back shoulder has left me with much more freedom of movement at the crease.

I've only hit two 20 odds but considering I've not netted or played since Feb I'll take that as an initial return.

Stick with it if it feels comfortable, I've had an open stance for a couple of years and whilst there were no instant results to certainly helped on side an offside play. I'm comfortable on the offside now whereas before I was unbalanced.
Technical changes and those that recommend a certain way may not always work, a lot is down to the individual and if they think it's working. I'm convinced any way to get balanced is the best way, whatever the method. I put weight on my right leg sometimes if I feel I'm not balanced enough.

You have to find a method that works for you ,to get the basics, still head, balanced and watching the ball

Stick at it sounds like it's working so far

Can you share the details?

If I were in England, I'd attend his "lab" and take lessons from him. His technique is effective!

How'd you pick it up ? Do you have a coach ? If not, can you possibly point to an online resource ?
