I never had a problem with mine. I'm not sure on the technical aspect but the ratio of power to cut is the close to same on the 36 with the 15 (.416) as on the 54 with the 23 (.425)
As for the recoil, I like it. Less weight and less moving parts to worry about. Also cheaper to fix if the recoil spring or the pull rope breaks as opposed to replacing a battery or a starter. JMO
