We use a stroke similar to this most of the time in practice and for the first half of a 500 meter race. Because the power is smooth it is more aerobic and less stressful on the back and shoulders. It is also important to stay balanced and not contort yourself during rotation. When racing we shorten and speed up the smooth stroke somewhat and use a quicker, more feathered recovery and entry.
