Default Intentional OAT?

I was surprised at a Feldberg clinic last year when he said that most pros, a lot of the time, are pulling on one line and releasing on another.

I started paying more attention as I played open recently and noticed that it seems to be true. I see pros pulling hyzer and releasing more flat.

Of course, that's the forbidden "throwing off plane" that introduces the dreaded "off axis torque (OAT)." I've tried it myself though, recently, and I see how it could be useful.

So what do you think? Is OAT to be avoided at all costs, or is intentional OAT an essential part of a complete player's game?
