I personally think there are benefits to both. The reason i started this thread is that to me it seems too many people are advising other players to have short compact ground shots and i'm not sure that is right.
It's all about timing. Look at 2hdb for example. The swing is obstructed with your other hand crossing the body but when timed properly, those balls are like cannons.
