OK.. here it is.. plain 'n' simple like..

train with an open hand grip to gain a stronger open hand grip!
train with a crimp grip to get strong on crimps, but crimp with care!

Open hand can be used in place of crimping in many situations

As far as I understand most climbers (myself included) tend to over crimp and need to practise their open hand grip more as this is much easier on pulleys, joints etc
