bowl gouge flute radius

Ralph Tursini
>I am interested to hear what people think about the effect of bowl gouge geometry on cutting. More specifically I wonder what differences are found in using a gouge with a deep, small radius flute (glaser deep bowl gouge)vs a larger radius superflute or even deep flute gouge.

My bowl gouges (HTaylor superflute) are getting close to retirement and I am considering replacement with Glaser tools. I like their feel and quality, but don't know if I will like the deep V small radius flute.
