For me its all about shooting. My preference is FT but I have done a few HFT events over the years. As an 'old school' FT'er I can remember shooting using hold over and under in the early 90's before 'twiddling' became the norm.
Even now I still revert back to hold under/over with by FT rig just to have a change from twiddling. Makes you concentrate that little bit more and as they say a change is as good as a rest. Some think its elitist but to be honest its just a good group of people enjoying what style they like.
