Maybe Harry has just one hugely developed arm from solo manipulation of his staff on a repeated basis?
Had a comment there but I don't want to get banned :D

هل أخذت الغاب مثلي منزلاً دون القصور
فتتبعت السواقي وتسلقت الصخور
هل تحممت بعطره وتنشفت بنور
وشربت الفجر خمراً من كؤوس من أثير

What did I say? What did I say?

It’s just an innocent comment which adequately describes how Harry can beat off allcomers single handed.

Well, great minds or maybe naughty minds think alike? ;)

The forum appears to have a collective filthy mind.

All I am saying is that Harry’s constant grasp on his magic stick and his exertions with it may have resulted in certain inevitable physiological changes leaving him less limber than he was before he started. His practice match with Lara in Peace Talks is a case in point, that exercise left him quite stiff afterwards.

And perhaps during.

To paraphrase what Hannah Ascher said to Harry in Skin Game:
"Wow. You left me nowhere to go on that one."

Well, I guess you could also say the exertion left him quite limp afterwards.. :-\

Why yes, didn’t Lara smash him on the foot/leg, with her stave? That would certainly impede his gait.

Well, I can think of several places she might strike that would cause that..  :o Then again, it might not be to her advantage to do that.. ::)

Of course I see it now her impending marriage plans for Harry could be badly damaged if he had a limp…..He couldn’t walk her back down the aisle if his carriage was impaired.

I can't remember reading that Harry ever uses his staff one handed. He is a tall guy, so it must be a pretty long staff. Unless there is a quote that says otherwise I think he always uses two hands when there is a physical action scene with it.

He does when he draws a firearm. Trying to use both hands on his staff and a piece at the same time is likely to result in his rod going off prematurely, he therefore has to use a single hand on his staff to avoid going off half cocked.

I hope that clearly explains it.
