Question Atlantic vrs. Pacific Salmon

How do the two stack up?
Would a king salmon from the Atlantic Ocean fight harder or milder at the end of your line, than a king salmon from the Pacific Ocean?
Has any one out there caught the same species in both oceans?

Pound for pound, which salmon gives you the best fight?
Kings?
Cohos?
Chinooks?

I am looking to hook on to a fish that explodes out of the water and makes dynamic runs. I have yet to use my drag in the 22+ years of fly fishing.

Hoping that salmon and steelhead fishing will fill this void.
