    I'm guessing you weren't using it at the proper range... seeing as how that would be just about impossible given the height difference.

    I can't say i've ever had any kind of problem with my hand aligned either way. I generally prefer vertical because I think i throw my hooks from a fair distance away. When I'm really close I prefer to post on them with my left hand to make space and then deck them with the right.

    As an aside I couldnt really visualize what B2B was talking about but when I see him next I'll learn his secrets and post a video online and those of us who aren't good at picturing words can discuss it.

    Yeah, I was trying to do the punch the way he described and ended up just looking ridiculous.

    I guess the range with the hook does have a lot to do with the way I throw it. A lot of times mine comes off the end of a jab so it's pretty long range as well. Not much power, more of a distraction for straight right.

    I imagine what he's talking about to look something like the hooks I throw in this gif



    though with more hip rotation. I was kinda arm punching there.

    This is from another thread, which may be relevent here:

This will help your muscle memory train proper hook mechanics, and get your body into the hook.

    A traditional hook has the hooking arm bent at 90 degrees, and parallel with the ground. The guideline I use is a horizontal fist for hooks at 90 and inside, and a vertical fist for hooks outside of 90 (ie: reaching or open hooks). These are more common in Muay Thai, as they are less powerful, but useful for setting up lowline attacks.
    The main reason why you don't want to hook with a horizontal fist outside of 90 is because of what can happen to your bottom two knuckles, as it seems debul can attest to. I have also heard that Thais prefer to hook horizontal inside 90 because missed hooks transfer into elbows better. Not quite sure if I believe this, cause for me, a hook is a hook, and an elbow is an elbow, could be I guess.

    It's a little hard to see what your back foot is doing in that gif. That is what I'm supposed to be looking at right? Thanks for the info octaviousbp.
