I was about to post the exact same thing. Now this study was conducted a number of years ago so who knows how training has changed to adjust to it. But nonetheless I found the results that came out of it a tad alarming. Maybe i'm missing something ..But it makes me curious which is better for initial training and proficiency. Because...law of primacy dominates..
