Are you back-dashing before doing Air Wire Grapple M? You don’t need to Tiger knee the Wire Grapple H (Ignore hasuchobe). Delay the S after the OTG to bring the opponent closer to the ground. If the opponent is too high after hitting S, zip, df zip, the opponent will flip out after the df zip.
I’m using wire grapple H to pick up right now, does it really matter between M or H? The zipline ender is corner only anyway right? Or can a “close enough to corner” knockdown take advantage of an M grapple into zip ender.
If “close enough to the corner,” you won’t need the backdash into Air Wire Grapple M. If cornered, you’ll need the backdash. For the Air Wire Grapple H OTG, I would suggest the ‘zig-zag’ zip ender. After OTG (if facing right / 1p side), :df: zip, :db:zip, Wire Grapple H into favorite ender or assist extension. The extra 80k is quite nice. I hope you are using Doom Hidden Missiles assist.
M wire grapple is good for finishing midscreen combos if you’re not already in the corner after a knockdown. H and M wire grapple both work in the corner. For really long combos (in the corner), ending with the criss cross grapple always works. Your opponent will tech out of zip zip enders that use j.:s: (if the combo is long).
you have to wait b4 doing the criss cross. If you’re early, you’ll miss the second zip. i usually go for an M grapple in midscreen situations. dash towards opponent into m grapple. If you’re fortunate to be near the corner after doing that, you can do the zip zip uvg.
