    Does this compromise the forehand in any way?

    The reason I ask is that I feel it's so much easier and more consistent when I go behind the head. What's the diff?

    Your follow thru is to maintain a consistent swing thru the whole stroke, insuring consistent ball striking.
    Some need long, some short, but all need consistent follow thru to whereever you need to maintain a repeatable stroke.
    Sometimes, if it's too long, your opponent can quickly hit the ball before you recover, so don't go too long if you can.
