I would not compare different types of hops as different types grow at different rates and produce different yields.
I have 4 2nd year hops that are 22' tall and I cut down when they were about 8' tall and let them regrow.
I have 14 1st year hops. The tallest is about 20' tall, the shortest is about 6".
Some take off, some don't. The one's that don't will be a stronger plant next year. Patient.
