a straight arm requires a higher level of control and timing than a bent arm and also you need better footwork for a straight arm. and by accounts of ppl i know and from what i read here on tt often a straight arm is harder to learn and harder to achieve consistency with than a bent arm. so i disagree.

Would you rather get hit with a short stick or a long stick?
Would you have more success trying to precisely hit a small, fast moving object moving towards you and curving with a short stick or a long stick?
