'U's, V's & 'parabola's. Deep into flutes

Arch
>Are there objective differences or just strongly held personal preferences about the shape of deep fluted gouges? Do different shaped flutes work best for different applications? Limit your opinions to deep flute shapes aka bowl gouges, altho IMO not a descriptive term. Omit discussing bevels, edges, grinds, steels, or handles and whether milled or forged.

Sometimes I'm the last to know, but what I would like is a list/chart of the different brands of deep flute gouges with their shapes, their reasons for being and the unbiased opinions of experienced turners who have used several. If this info already exists in one place, please tell me where.

Many TIAs, Arch
