In my case, I often use a conti everystroke grip when I play right handed. I play right handed maybe 3 days a year, so the normal strong SW can get flyers and groundballs on consecutive attempts. Conti gives me the controllable low slice, lob, and drop angles needed for doubles. Pace is lacking, but sufficient for 3.5 level play.
I'm impressed that you can play righthanded. I've dabbled with playing lefthanded, but I think it would take LOTS of practice to get anywhere near proficient at it.
