Sorry, this is by no means a fair comparison. There is a much faster way to do speed hooks, that's the slow granny way. Also, the person in the video did not take the additional time to lace the top tier of eyelets.
Real world, assuming you use all the eyelets, speed hooks should be faster than that, and 9 eyelets should be slower than that.
OK--I'll grant you that. And I know the faster way to do speed hooks, but I'll maintain that any hook lacing still requires way more attention--deliberately placing the lace in each . And any method to lace hooks is difficult in dim light. In the end, it's of very little consequence--people have their own preferences. My goal was to demonstrate that all (8/9) eyelets aren't the PITA people make them out to be. I don't mind a knot at the end of the laces, and by having them, I can use all of the lace without having them slip through the eyes.
