Unfortunately, the takeback is part of the prep, so it cannot be judged separately. Some 2hbh's takeback direct, while other's loop.
Longer leverage and weaker ONE arm is the reason the forward swing takes longer to initiate in 1hbh, and quickness favors the 2 hbhs.
Any swordsman will tell you 2 hands is stronger and quicker than one hand, while badminton players would argue, as would knife fighters.
