I'd say that 1007 is unusually vigorous, not that the others are
lethargic.

When my brew partner and I first acquired some 7 gallon carboys
we stopped using a blow-off hose. For most of the yeast strains
we used- 1028, 1056, 1098- this was no problem. Then we tried
1007 for the first time. Yeast sludge all over the basement.
Beer tasted great, though.
