I agree with this. I think there's a lot more flexibility with the Phunnel, but it's also much easier to screw up. The Vortex, on the other hand, is much easier to get working smooth. But personally, I don't feel like there's much room to get creative with packing and hole patterns. Maybe there is and I'm just really bad at it. It's hard to say. But thus far, that has been by experience.
