I agree, but would make an important distinction: it's a heavily choked up LH FH.

Try playing your RH FH holding the racquet so the top of your right hand is equal to the top of the grip, just below the throat of the racquet. Doable, of course, but definitely unorthodox, and you'd lose stability.

The RH 2HBH is definitely drawing the positive characteristics of a LF FH in the sense that the Righty's power come from his left arm and body's kinetic energy. Cool topic, especially for me, a guy who plays a 2HFH and a 2HBH.
