sorry, I had not noticed your one plane video, which I have now had a look at, many thanks.
So, to engage with you on your question, which was "why pursue a one plane swing, if even the "best" exponent of it is not 100% one plane?"
A couple of things occur to me. Firstly, BD may not be 100% but he seems pretty close to me. I would not shoot down the one plane idea based on his deviations, I dare say all players are not perfect at doing what they claim to be doing.
For me, based on how I interpret things from Hardy's explanation of one and two plane, I don't think the planes are the primary thing. I believe that the primary difference between one and two plane is how you think of powering the shot, and the plane differences arise out of the power differences.
I think of pulling down a steep plane with an automatic uncocking release when I think of two plane. If I have your terminology right: high alpha, low beta, high gamma.
Alternatively, if you want the body rotation and the right arm powering the shot, you get low alpha, high beta, low gamma.
These are different ways to power and think about the swing, the plane differences arise naturally out of those choices.
Now, and I am guessing here, if where you are headed is something like "medium alpha, medium beta, a little bit of gamma", maybe you can't see much value in the distinction between one and two plane. I'm not going to argue with you on that.
I am equally happy with one and two plane, I mess up either one. I bet if you videod me, you would not be able to tell what I was trying to do.
