How can I serve a better floater?

Serving the Floater, Part 2

In an era when jump serving is all the rage, why would anyone bother to serve the floater anymore?

Here's a 2nd reason:

The floater is a beautifully effective short serve. The jump server usually is happy just to get the ball in the court somewhere, but if you serve the floater, you can just barely put it over the net, in front of the 10-foot line. That's the most difficult pass to make, and you'll often be serving front-row people who aren't accustomed to passing very often.

Not to mention if the ball does go deep, the floater will be moving, and it may catch the opposing player high in the chest.
