Tiger vs. Turtle

I wonder who has spawned more hedge fund/CTA progeny, the Tiger cubs of Julian Robertson (who tend toward the equity side of the universe), or the Turtles of William Eckhardt and Richard Dennis? The Tiger cubs are on the fundamental side of the fence while the turtles are technical. Quite a few of these have been interviewed in “Market Wizards” and “The New Investment Superstars”. A list of their disciples is like a who’s who of the hedge fund and managed futures industry (any biggies I am missing?):
