Good point, very inner thigh/groin heavy as well.

Like some others, I don't find it an easy version but I think that's because I haven't really given it much of a run in relation to normal standard DLs and the frog stance DL (??, feet turned out but closer together), I found that one quite nice to do.
The frog stance is an interesting one and something I've experimented with as well. Inaba the amazing japanese lightweight powerlifter did extremely well with the frog stance and I know some of the lighter asian weightlifters also snatch and clean frog stance. The legendary middleweight powerlifter Anello also pulled frog stance and did extremely well.

Not sure what type of structure would suit frog stance, but my inclination is toward someone with a wider hip structure.

Not really sure, I'm more of a narrow hip body make-up; the thing I liked was how it shifts the kneecaps out of the path of the barbell. Whichever version I use, I know that I have to start over with light weights to build it up due to the inherent differences in each and that may be something which a few overlook because you can't really just swap from one to the other using the same loads as the starting point.

I hate the deadlift, but when I do use it then I like a semi-sumo stance. I squat so much that my legs and hips just naturally like that stance better, it's ingrained in me.

Conventional stance builds pulling power while sumo is alot more of a technical lift. Both ways require alot of back, glute, and hamstring strength.
