Part of Stuart Batty's presentation is that the additional time taken honing any gouge with metal under V-15 is usually not returned at the lathe. i.e. 1 minute honing does not give you 1 minute or more extra optimum sharpness. He does believe that honing is worth it on V-15.

Argue it with him. Just passing it on.
