  I hadn't thought about landings

but thats a great point, the pry can enable you to keep the boat in deeper water while pushing the boat toward the shore. A very real scenario and advantage
If you think about strokes in really simple terms- there are only three kinds- pushing, pulling, and static. We tend to favor the latter two.
Crossdraws are great but you're really switching twice- once over and once back. If you've got the depth to do it but I'm thinkin' the pry is the lightening stroke- even quicker- you just don't want to get zapped by it.
