I used my pathfinder awl quite a bit over the last few years. More often than not when using the awl you insert it from the inside out not like it's shown in the Eagnas photos. This means if you have the Eagnas you have it resting up against the stringbed. Looks like it is going to be difficult to use and prone to bending. I would go with the Gamma.
Unless you have a shared hole the only time you would have two strings in one grommet is for tie off and the always go in from the outside.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
