Pre inflated PC Can't Post

I’ve talked to a few people that have a good number of slider down jumps that told me never to do it. What determines a a low jump with a pre inflated pc or a mushroom type handheld jump?

Do you mean that not the entire PC is inside of the palm of your hand? With longer delays, there'll be a force in your hand that will try to roll you.

The second thing is that it's more difficult to throw it far away from you.

Exactly, I am a noob in the sport, but I use it like this only for no delay jumps and with a real big PC (48'')

And for this kind of jumps it makes sense to throw it almost vertical ????

Why? What was their reasoning? Honestly curious as to their thoughts. I could see a poorly executed pre-inflation causing various deployment issues.
I think it's probably pointless for most slider off jumps because lets face it, what people consider low really ain't that low at all.
That being said, it is probably one of the quickest ways possible to line stretch on a hand held jump. But, it is definitely a unique/different technique that you would want to practice extensively to perfect (very different to hand held mushroom). I also believe it works best with the largest of large PCs (50+) and I seem to remember reading that the ultra low guys were even using a shorter bridle to help maintain "pre inflation" on the way to bridle stretch.
So if we are talking 9ft bridle and 48PC freefalling 200ish and up. Then I wouldn't even bother trying to figure it out.

Looking back at videos makes no big difference the direction where you throw it because the fabric slows it down anyway.

I just do a half weak throw and it almost stays in place for the time the bridle stretches.

This is how it looks to me, from videos, but again I am really inexperienced.
