I have not seen any SOG growers claim 1.5g/w but I have seen tree/bush growers achieve this and if you have a veg area then you have no down time.
I would almost agree except that most of the big bushes indoors has SOME fluff on the lowers and usually still gets added to the end weight.
What I wish people would weight is the A+ buds alone because those (to me) are the only ones worth weighing as the rest is just gunna be personal or hash trash anyways.
I can see solid topping strategies working wonders BUT you spend more time with the girls, they have to veg ALOT longer and are harder to manage "per plant". In the same breath, you have 16 plants in a sog for instance and many a TON more but with bushes you can have 4-6 and have less to water/feed.
Fast veg and solid yields = sog
Slow veg and solid yields = bushes
if you have a veg cab just sitting there growing the next cycle all the time versus having to weight for girls to be ready every new cycle then YES big bushes would be easier.
It is easy to veg something for a month or two when it isn't next in line or you sitting there WAITING for it to be ready to toss in flower.
less to manage and easier to trim also goes to sog because bushes are bitches to trim up especially if you leave the lowers on.
