Only 1-2 1000 rated players throw Forehand as their main shot and even Geoff Bennett has starting using mostly BH due to the fact you will eventually throw your elbow out if you have REAL FH power.
That's a good point. I began playing as a FH dominant player and have gradually changed to BH dominant. If I go a practice in a field I only throw backhands, but I still stick to my FH on narrow right turning fairways b/c it's consistent for me. I'm not sure why you originally assumed that I don't throw "the real way" seeing as I have never met you before, but I'm sure you were just trying to help.
