I agree with you. I've experemented with different firing times
in my wood kiln. 14 hours and I had alot of nice looking pots,
6 1/2 hours only a few. The otherday 13 1/2 hours and no bag walls,
this was the best. I even threw in about a couple cups of salt.
The longer you fire in gas, electric or wood - you get better results.
Soaking even helps out more that one might expect.
