Polyester plates VS Gocco?

Thanks Roberta, for your post on George Roberts' polyester plate printing
technique, sounds just like something I could use too, for miniature books,
thanks Laura for asking the question! I've been thinking of trying to find
a Gocco machine for color reproduction but I'd love an excuse to start
messing about with my etching press again. Does anyone have an opinion on
how Gocco would compare to polyester plates for reproducing fine line
(dense crosshatching) and small (4/5/6pt) type?

>(great for detailed illustrations).
