75% of the videos I see, the hand that is palm up is still bent and contracting when the pull is initiated.

This is not only inherently dangerous, but it also means you are starting the pull with your head lower to the ground, possibly more out over the bar,and possible with hit and miss hip position.

I see guts still beast the bar up, but I am not sold that they are lifting more than they could with a precise start.

If a lifter uses it, they better know what to watch for regarding bent arms, bad hips and head position. Most don't. Therefor I don't think anyone but experienced pullers should do it.

If you can't analyze your mistakes, you need to master basic pulling first.
