This is a good point. But I think it was covered by "all things being equal." Thus the claim would be that well done HW is has advantages over well done GY. Sure, poorly done HW can be worse than well done GY. But that's not taking "all things equal."This is a very good summary with the exception that DW made. I'd also add that, iirc, one other disadvantage DW has mentioned w/ GY is the cork/glue mix, as it can shift or dry and crumble.
