Bowl Gouge Flute Shapes - "V" vs. "U"

Devon Palmer
>Heyas All,

Whats the deal with "V" vs "U" shaped flutes on bowl gouges, I've heard that V shapes are better for exterior and U shapes are better for interior (depending on grind of course).

Any insights as to the advantages and disadvantages of each flute shape and their best application? Is one suited better for side grind?
