The point is that b+2+4 is mashable in strings by holding back. b, b+2 is not. Even though they both have similar active windows which I believe is 6-7 frames with a 1 frame start up. B+2+4 also counters EVERYTHING. What I don't know is how many frames she is vulnerable but by old standards its usually about 9 frames, so even if you "miss" the counter window you should still be able to block highs and mids if you are still holding back. Try it out in practice mode, set the dummy to do a string or a 10 hit, hold back and mash 2+4...
