How do you figure this? Most PLers I know can do a substantial amount more on the floor press than with a full ROM press. Just like the same goes with board presses. The last 2-3" of your press should be your stongest. I don't believe it's because your triceps are disproportionatly stronger, but because it's all triceps and shoulders for those last 2-3". I agree though that this shouldn't be just an accessory exercise, and should be trained just as hard as board presses/bands/chains. For PL that is.
