I know a some good 60+ players still using 2 HBH. I think in the 60+ crowd a lot of them still grew up with the one hander. Ones that didn't and switched when they get older tell me it is mostly mobility and reach thing. It also takes less effort to set up the 1 HBH shot and most play doubles so trading topspin backhands from the baseline usually isn't what they are doing and need the 2HBH less.
