Agreed, a forehand only like a baseball sidearm motion can be hard on your body, thumbers and tomahawks too. But these shots work great to get you out of trouble once or twice a round. I think the key word is Flick, smooth snap with the wrist and not a full body crush it shot with your arm fully extended and your body stretched out. Jeremy Koling is a great example of a motion that could be sustained in a round without injury, Avery Jenkins has a smooth flick too.
