What Posta are best used with what plays?

Like the title says. What of the 12 posta posta are best with Fiore's plays?
Both Gicco Largo and Gicco Stretto
All I can know is what exists.

Any of the posta can lead to any of the plays, just about. All the plays come from either a largo cross on the side of the lead leg or a stretto cross on the side of the rear leg. You can get to those positions in about a million ways from all of the posta. :)

Matt (R),

You are coming at this from the wrong direction. The 12 (13) posta of longsword are all part of Master Battle. The plays in the MS are part of Master Remedy +.

As Matt (E) says - the plays occur. You cannot really force them or look for them -more recognise them.

Cheers,

Mark
