I have used HH drives to backup many petabytes of data to LTO-6 tapes. And, have worked on FH drives only occasionally. But I haven't seen any difference in backup speed between either.
One whole LTO-6 tape takes about 4 hrs to write and 2 to verify. It goes down to 6 write and 3 verify if the source drives are slow. Or if you are backing up a large number of small files.
