But if it's weaker, than why do it?

Hmm. this is a good question. Is it better to get many small powered punches in, or a few hard punches in?

Now that's a dam good question. A few powerful punches will put a guy down quicker but many fast punches will keep them off balance, overwhelmed, on the defensive, and it will be easier to nail them. I guess it's just a matter of personal preference and body type, attributes, etc.

But if you are definately going to land the slower more powerful punches (and you can continue doing both indefinately), then I would stick with the more powerful punches.

That's not ALWAYS the best way - you should see the value in both if you're a JKD student. The thing is, even though you may be able to put a guy down in less punches with a more "powerful" strike, it doesn't mean you will. Too many MAists overlook the fact that it is not easy to knock someone out, no matter how strong you are. Personally, I like faster punches and multiple targets. Sometimes it's best to break the branches before you fell the tree.

But under the assumption of always landing either way, you may as well hit the guy harder. Too much speed will mean you will have less accuracy, and the inability to change redirect your shot should the guy move.

Taking it to a different view. SB is a good offensive move but counter for counter.

Isn't the slide back hook punch a intercepting counter for a straight blast, either angle out or step back front leg hook punch on the now front hand they seem to run into the hook. Angle out they can't hit you straight punch, but you can hit them.

So how close before you are safe to blast, do you oush them 1st or sweep the front leg. Of course after a power stunning shot, you fairly safe.

Well every single attack has a counter, and every counter has a counter so that argument can always be used. What we can learn from that is to always choose the right shots and always be in a high state of awareness, this will increase the chance of being able to counter any counter you may encounter .

How about this, throw three or four fast punches and then a devastating one. I personally feel that it is better to aim for speed in the initial few encounters in case he is a good counter fighter. Get him off balance or stun him with a quick shot, making sure you finish in a position from which you can throw one of you most powerful shots, and then unleash the fury. The one that works best for me is the jab/cross.
