Massey's technique works for a soft stop shot, but what about when you need more power to get shape? For these close-quarters power shots, Bob Jewett recommends using the rail as a stopper for your grip hand: measure the maximum distance you want your tip to follow through and then set up so your grip hand will hit the rail at that point. Not as painful as it sounds...

P.S. You also don't have to use Massey's sidearm stance for the "fingertip" technique - just set up as normal (forearm vertical), but use only wrist and fingers - no forearm movement.
