I've been experimenting recently with my short field landing technique, and I've been practising braking after touchdown while the nose wheel is still off the ground, the objective being to keep it off even during the braking phase. Obviously, I do not let the nose wheel bang down even under braking.
It needs a fairly deft touch - I'd never try it in an aircraft I didn't know very well, and I can imagine it has the potential to go a bit pete tong.
Not sure I'd try it while holding straight with a bootful of rudder in a strong crosswind as well....
Although.... I do like a challenge
