Of the guys I've played who are 60 and beyond, seems 85-90% employ the old-school 1HBH. Of the few who use 2HBH I generally ask if they used to use 1HBH. Most affirm.
It is lazier and easier on the slice, of course.
Turns out it is also the case for top spin, once you are over the hump and can handle high and incoming top spin balls (with topspin from your side). Some people never cross the hump though and remain slicers.
