A matter of style ?

 I suppose I could create a specific hand and set it as a bidding problem but I think a general discussion is more relevant.

You play 5 card majors, strong NT, and 1C is either Clubs or balanced 12-14.

Now a couple of friends of mine play (to my mind insane) that since 5332 is a balanced shape that you open 1C with 12-14 even when the 5 card suit is a major. Now I thought they were alone in their madness but now a third friend not just thinks this is fine but states it’s quite common.

So,assuming average honour dispersion do you open with this hand type....

1C
The Major
There are still other factors to consider
