I think Fed's swing is a good model for a high level E fh. except that his wrist range of motion is bigger than typical rec players who don't use such a small grip to their hands. The implication for this is pretty far reaching in overall form and technique imo. And a good rec player should learn how to compensate for certain differences between them and the pros when trying to model the form.
