Hey, good point. Now that I think about it, every floor I've pulled up with staples, the staples do come up with the hardwood.I've demoed floors nailed with both. Stapled floors don't hardly leave a staple in the floor & there's hardly a damaged plank. Not the case with cleats.
Let me ask you this for comparison. Which will hold better, a ring shank nail, or a 16 sinker?
