The problem I found with single leg work is that most can go so heavy that stabilization across the hip ends up making it worthless. Few can use even half with one leg that they'd use with two legs. Which is why I didn't talk about it. And while you can do it with a DB in the opposite hand, grip gives out long before teh calves are taxed.
