Very good advice to your friends gents. I would give them my eating green grass in the sunshine technique. That i had discuss earlier in the conditioning the heart muscle. I will add that when you get to the shows,make sure that you match your bird properly in height and weight.
I heard that a body punch would most likely win cuz they break the body of their opponents immobilizing them from attacking. How true is this? I Wana hear the people that knows from experience thank you
My opinion head hunter vs body puncher... if you are talking about weapon then head hunter is best..if you are talking about taped..I would prefer body puncher any day any time. And here is a secret that I will pass from to you all.. pay attention to your bird's stool if it is runny don't even take him out...your bird's poop has to be firm which shows he is healthy.
Abreu..... if you say that comment then you are not very open minded... most body puncher wins in 2 rounds or 3...I tell you what... I have one that is about 7.75 lbs... I will play against your same weight head hunter taped any time....why don't you do this..ask any Hmong person what style of bird they hate to play against the most...a body/qais/leg hitter or a head hunter....see if you find out what style of birds are aces in the Hmong pit.... bet you won't get the answer you are looking for... the reason I said to ask Hmong..because they are the true tape players... you are well behind in the tape world. Let me educate you a little to open up your mind since you are making fun of body punchers... if and when you spar your birds..where are they most likely to get tough at... their face..neck... but none will ever be hit on the body to toughen up...the target of a head is much smaller than the body... do you even know where the qais area is? That is the sweetest spot to hit.. an opponent bird will sit on hisbutt when gets hit there...a few solid hit there and guarantee you your head hunter bird will either lose his legs or jump arena out... it's funny how people like you are so far behind in studying the tape world birds from us Hmong folks. As Junior or Dubtl why pluckers are so dangerous.... hope I didn't ruffled your feathers explaining why I choose body hitter over head hunters and you making fun of me saying body punchers is for endurance.. you have great birds.
I have to agree with Crookedtoes. The body punchers hit areas of the body that don't have any muscle. Some will hit the legs, some hit the back and can break it. Feel your birds, there isn't any muscle covering the back. A few good shots there and a bird is in big trouble. I have also seen them hit the area where the neck joins the shoulders. That is also a very weak area and will cause a bird to lose his ability to hold his head up. Big trouble. The ones that hit the legs cripple birds in short order as well.
The only place I disagree with Crookedtoes is this. I feel the only bird that can consistently beat a body puncher is a really good top spinner. But he must have great defense and be able to stay away from the other bird and constantly push his head down. And of course he has to be extremely accurate.
