Eq116 vs. ozone 9 FIR EQ vs. mAAT EQ Orange for Linear Phase Quality

I love the eq116 Linear phase mode filters but I did some research I was told that "Maat EQ Due to the double IIR Filter the lowcut becomes a Linkwitz-Riley Filter. For me and many others it’s the king of the surgical filters and it can really work miracles." really have this degree difference between eq116 and maat eq orange or Ozone 9 digital (surgicel FIR eq) ?

Cambridge spanked by TRacks Linear Phase EQ

With the IKMultimedia promotion on their plugs currently get 5 plugs for $99 I thought I would demo them since I mostly use the UA plugs when mixing. I thought I would do a little test against the Cambridge and their Linear Phase EQ. In a session I usually use the Cambridge on non-essentials but in this case I wanted to para-metrically remove stuff from a guitar track so I used it on that.

Equing and linearity

Do you pro guys usually use a 31band graphic eq to "straighten out" the audio? when I use a spectrum analyzer set on RMS, I see that the line is pretty straight. so is this an "important" factor when mastering a track? I have tried to do it myself, and in some cases it can sound much more open, but at the same time take away some of the tracks "personality".
