Recently at our club, our coach was criticizing that Block in a Rally is really bad because it gives a no spin ball which the opponent can accelerate. But, when the ball is fast, blocking with precision had won points for me. As you said, keeping a track of the ball and changing your wrist can be lethal to give an upper hand in the rally if the opponent hits hard. So, I guess it is good but with precision.
If you have the opportunity to play a more aggressive response like a counter spin then that is usually better than a block. However sometimes we don’t have enough time to be able to do this.
In that situation look to make your block as effective as possible with placement or speed.
