I have previously heard reports along similar lines, but in the other

eg - "I moved from a collection to a TEXT column with JSON in it, and my
reads and writes both became much faster!"

I'm not sure if the issue has been raised as an Apache Cassandra Jira, iow
if it is a known and expected limitation as opposed to just a performance

If I were you, I would consider filing a repro case as a Jira ticket, and
responding to this thread with its URL. :D
