Parallel neck or outer coils on an HH?

If you have tried the above, chime in and let me know what your experiences have been. I wired a guitar to give me both options, but in the end I didn't "hear" any difference. I am getting ready to rewire it and wanted some of your thoughts.

I just wired a guitar a couple of weeks ago with two neck Breeds, with a VLX91 and the 3120 diagram and a Fender TBX pot, and its perfect

marianozz,
I also read that description from dimarzio and thought it "sounded" like it would be a good idea. If you don't mind, what was it that you liked/didn't like about each config?
