I would add too, I bet 80% of beaglers think they run a dogs that are a speed of 6 or upper-medium dogs. I have seen Branko and hare hound dogs called upper-medium and I have seen super-conservative appaclachian hounds called upper-medium. Same thing with line control. Everybody has "decent line control." It could be "yeah they are decent, never more than 3 feet from the line" or "yeah they are decent, line is always between their front legs." Bowguy is right, it really is all about who you ask and what their goals and preferences are.
I have a hound that is easy that is sometimes first out of a check, but never leaves the line. He makes a pack better, but will never win a trial. He will also never take away from a race either. When I am hunting, he is a great asset. He is easy though.
