Snatch balance is a skill transfer exercise that requires speed, accuracy, and power all working in concert. Any deviation from this will result in a failed attempt, when working at max loads.  Its ability to reveal poor mechanics in the overhead squat is powerful, as a violation in midline control, shoulder stability, and balance becomes immediately apparent vs the strict overhead squat that will allow you a slow death.
