There's no real question in this post, but just an observation really. You hear people raving about WFP & how trad is old-fashioned & useless. And you hear people who hate WFP. The last few days I've been experimenting and has reinforced my belief that there is room and need for both, depending on your work. I have had WFP for few yrs now & I don't do any tops off a ladder, too risky. Will always use WFP for upstairs windows. I have a run (about 200 houses) that I do tops wfp & trad bottoms. I've been wanting to make it all WFP so decided this week was the week. Did my first lot of houses, got back to van, and saw that it had taken the same amount of time doing it all WFP as it did bottoms trad. Did 2nd lot of houses and found the same, along with some access problems & faffy problems using WFP where I normally trad. So after that, I went back to doing bottoms trad- And I actually preferred it. My point is that I think there is place for both. You can't say one way is 'better'- just different. No doubt WFP is quicker instead of using a ladder, but for ground level stuff, if your quick with your blade, that can be as fast. I also have work that is all WFP & is way quicker than trad. I use a trolley, backpack, van system & trad gear- All have their place. Sorry for the lengthy kinda-pointless post, but just made me realise you need to adapt to the job, not be narrow minded when it comes to equipment.
