Seems like a win to me, he tried both ways and found what he liked.
This brings up some things I've been thinking about, It seems many of the hard core dedicated flute people say a whole lot of "oh yes you can make neutral with a flute" but very few actually come out and say it is better neutral than can be made with a packed column. I have seen one person say they preferred the neutral from a flute because it was less neutral than from a packed column with better mouth feel but that's it, all the rest pretty much just say "yes it is possible" and a whole lot of "cool factor" kind of comments. A few seem to try to clam they produce faster which is incorrect when you compare apples to apples. So with that said perhaps you hard core dedicated flute guys can answer a few questions.
Do you honestly feel the neutral you get from your flute is more neutral than what you would get if you just took the plates out and packed the column? or do you just believe it is better? Why?
Ignoring the "cool factor" and speed myth, why do you feel a flute dedicated to neutral is actually superior to a packed column if all a person wants to make is neutral?
And just out of curiosity are you guys singing the praises of the flute for neutral making and or selling flutes to or for others?
