This is where I get confused. Everyone I've seen, spoken to about it, or heard talking about it here on wow.com, prefers TG as a fury warrior. The number of fury warriors I've seen using SMF I could probably count on one hand. So, when speccing for fury for the first time at 85 after getting bored of arms, I took Titan's Grip and picked up another 346 axe. Damage, for me, was 'meh' in comparison to arms, which I found weird, since everyone was also talking about how arms was sub-par to fury dps. I stayed fury for a while, did a few HC's and a Baradin Hold run, but just couldn't reach my comfortable Arm dps of about 11k. I was sitting at about 9k.Went back to arms for a bit. Kind of forgot about DPSing; turned back into a big moving plate with a target painted on it to give Beauty a chew toy, and then one day, decided on a whim to buy the justice point off-hand sword and specced into SMF, simply because I was bored. Now I'm picking up around 14k dps with my two 'little' swords, and I'm genuinely enjoying the feel of the combat, something I wasn't getting with TG. Strange, how a talent tree (or in this case different weapon specc in the same tree) can be considered sub-optimal by almost the entire community but if it just meshes with you and your playstyle, you can get much better performance out of it.

One of the top dps warriors in the world is using SMF for his PvE spec. It's likely due to the fact that he was able to get 372 ilevel 1handed weapons, but it's been viable since launch. The numbers show that 2 2handers generally will win out over 2 one handers, but your weapon ilevel makes a big difference. It's kind of like the old arms weapon specializations, spec into whatever the best weapon you have.and even with those even ilevels, there isn't that huge of a difference.
