re: Poker & 6-max vs full ring (10NL) - FR players much worse?

Sure, full ring is SLOW, and everyone is super tight. But it kind of suits my playing style, as I will play a fairly wide range in LP and trapping becomes easy as most play fit/fold. Stealing pots IP when villains don't cbet is easily profitable, as well as floating low flops and stealing on turn, as everyone's range is nit-tight.
It is a more bluffable game type in my opinion, as people are super tight (ranges are v narrow), and many are scared and terrible post-flop - which is the main difference I find from 6-max.
My overall take is that FR players are absolutely terrible, fish are spotted within 2-3 hands and they will call down with anything. It may be my run-bad in 6-max, but 6-max players are so much better / more aggressive, everytime I even entered a pot it was more or less for stacks.
So I might keep going at FR for now, as slow as it may be, but a creative starting hand range and solid post flop poker seems to work wonders.
What do you think, do you agree on these differences? What else? Are FR players overall so much worse than 6-max?
Sorry to hear about your misfortune. For a long time I played FR as my main source of income. It was for a combination of reasons, one being that the variance was lower and I could systematize my play easier (allowing me to play more tables and earn steady income). I wrote an E-book that discusses some of the differences of full ring and 6 -max.
