but forehand 330 is something Dave from innova does without more than one step. so 400 for pros is cake if they work at it.
I agree, there are a lot of instances where you can count on the forehand skip to get you closer to the pin. Or say if the basket is on the right but there is an uphill slope. A turnover should would be prone to hitting the hill and kicking back left.

Footing is another big upside to me. It doesn't take too many tree hits to the hand on a backhand follow through to make you wanna at least develop a get out of jail flick shot.

I have yet to injure myself (knock on wood) and about 80 percent of my game is forehand. the rest is approach and putts backhand.
