Perhaps the HIS power of 16 years ago wasn't enough to handle the doubled GWM. He needed his now superior inner strength along with HIS maybe.

YG and JLFW were evenly matched in inner power. the ordinary sword YG used broke and the wheels in JLFW's hands fly out of his grip. with the heavy sword, YG would have had a clear advantage. when YG competed with palm stances, he was equal even through he couldn't release his full force due to his happy state. when he felt despair, his full power was released and he defeated JLFW in a couple of moves(pretty much). JLFW realised he could't win and decided to save GX instead(latest edition) before dying.
YG trained in the waves until he could overcome the waves with a wooden sword/(branch). that level was all about inner power usage and level. YG had pretty much raised his inner power to the furthermost level possible and gained the most exquisite level of mastery of his inner power. he could channel his inner power through a wooden stick/sword and make it powerful enough to overcome a powerful wave, channel it through his sleeve and knock the weapon of an elite fighters hand, shoot a chi burst powerful enough to send a pair of bangles of guo xiang's hands hard enough to knock away a 2Xquanzhen elder fighter like nimoxing and lend enough force to a hairpin GX threw to penetrate both nomoxing's hands and into his brain, while standing far away behind her so neither Guo xiang or guo fu saw him. wood sword level is pretty much formless and extreme inner power. YG should have mastered that.
THE KYSS OF THE SWORD IS DEADLY BUT EXQUSITE
he's the strongest in history but he's the disciple.
I don't think that the wooden stage is necessarily inferior to HIS as a martial art form. It's just that the Heavy Iron Sword itself is a power booster just as the Dragon Sabre and Heaven Sword is a booster. It is a source of great power, but also a handicap.

If the mastery of wooden sword stage is define as The ability to produce the same damage power as YG's heavy iron sword pre 16 years time and if we assume that YG's trainning in the waves of the sea let him achieve that level, then the fact that he tied with JLFW in a weapon clash while using a normal sword should be perceive as wooden sword stage inferiority to the 10th lvl of dragon elephant sutra. This is what I believe. But if you give the wooden sword stage a different definition then the result will certainly be different.
