(Higher% payout w/ worse technology) vs (Lower% payout w/ better technology)

  1. In a scenario where it's >80% payout, no draw, but the firm's technology is lacking (but the trade still runs) vs a firm that gives a sub 20% (8-15% is likely) payout but has reasonable technology and a small draw (80-120k, 8 months to profitability or you're canned), which is the better route?

    Hoping someone can speak from experience. Other thing is that the sub 20% payout place requires you to disclose strategy. IMO, I know my edge can work at both places. However, the technology would help me expand to more profits, it's just that I get less of those profits.
