Lead placement requires lot of expertise and fine tuning. If I can get a high SW stock, why not go for it?
Pros have to do it because they may have no option from their sponsors. Right now it is only the Dunlop 200 Tour and the PK PSE. How many are sponsored by these companies?
Soon there will be only one because the Dunlop F 2.0 Tour is going to have a lower SW.
Also, the low RA of Dunlop makes for a very arm-friendly frame.
