It depends on what your goals are. A simple arc swing can certainly accomplish a lot. You have a nice, smooth motion and are very consistent. But the more modern technique allows you hit harder with consistency. If you want to improve you just have to commit to learning the new technique and suck for a while during the learning process. But I love that feeling of wailing on the ball.
