Same, but not really. Think of a wide board with tight grain on both sides and cathedral grain up the middle. The center cut on a log. If it has curly figure, it is less noticable across the center, and more pronounced on the tighter outside grain. Like a tigers back with the stripes on the sides. This is due more from the cut orientation than the figure. Standard milling produces tiger as you get more heartwood and the true curly is in the outer rings. On curly the curl will go uninterrupted from one side to another.
