As far as age is concerned... only open TLs count.. Util, payment history, ect. still count on closed TL, however.

I have to disagree with you on this one! I have an old, closed AU TL reporting on EQ and TU and they have done two things: significantly raised my credit length history and average-age of my accounts. EX does not report this TL so my credit length history and average-age of accounts is much shorter and my score seems to reflect this.

Credit Profile - FICO 08 Scores (03-26-2015): EQ 814, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!
Credit History: 27 years ~ AAoA: 13 years ~ Util: 1% ~ Inqs: TU 1
