Dudley's Short Swing Blow is very useful! WTF?!

I can't believe I don't see more short swing blows. On every block string, SWB only gets -2 frames on LK, chips, and owns every throw/option select people throw out. 
 
Why do no Dudley's use this move?!

I dunno why. I really like it. It's one of the few moves that actualy looks like boxing.

If you time it right you can actually grab him on the way back towards you before the hit comes out. I've done it to Pessh a couple of times, but it's a really hard. I agree that the move is really good.

a good Ryu player can hit you with C.MK :(  
 
SSB is fantastic when you mix it with grabs :)

Because it's a gimmick move, it will only work once.

No. Thunderbolt is a gimmick move. SSB is just a hit or miss kind of move.

@Jeffsekai: I don't think he was talking about Blanka.  
 
Thunderbolt is Dudley's stupid ass charge move.  
 
If there was something I missed, sorry, but Thunderbolt = Dudley.

  @SirOptimusPrime: Blanka is still a jerk, or "Guttahtwash!" as Dudley would say.

If you time it right, it will move back from a crossup, anti-air, and you can follow it with an ultra, supper, or jet upper.
