It might not be as strong but if I make more money from it over time, then I would say that its a better hand for my play style.
You've yet to articulate why this is the case.
Anyways, I gotta run.. Systo I think you will definitely be improving.. just make sure you understand why something is happening. Don't do things because a video says if you don't understand the reasoning. I really believe your thought process is confused here.
There is no reason to prefer air to a pair on the flop. Even if you do the exact same thing.. cbet once and give up. With a pair you might maybe make two pair or trips or something.
