I agree that lady leads in a circle left is super smooth - no fiddling 
with hands required, just fold in and continue CW momentum into the swing.

Gent leads in circle left is a hand change and I've felt it as being 
very awkward.  (Spent a whole dance with one of those where partner and 
I experimented on how to get it smooth; best two solutions were keeping 
hold of the same hand, joining the other hand,and doing a crossed-hand 
swing or changing gender roles with partner each time so you could keep 
the same hand.)

When gent leads in circle right you don't have to change hands, but when 
lady leads you do.
