Also, with an axis point between the bottom and top hand, allowing you to use both hands (push with the top and pull with the bottom) you do get significanly more power applied to the rod.. more line speed and distance. timing and casting competency become more critical... I nailed myself a couple of times with a weighted fly that was under full steam from a two handed powered forward stroke..it hurt. That is more likely to happen in a wind or with a poorly executed D loop with a spey cast. Not as likely with overhand casting.
