Yeah I can agree with that. I think I ended up injuring my wrist/forearm every now and then when I was following the "wrist" technique. In fact when I stopped trying to do what my coaches told me and doing what felt a little more natural (pronation) I had less nagging on my elbow and wrist while at the same time having more power (a LOT more power).
