Notch Cutting Method for Leggy Roses?

I had some leggy David Austin roses I noticed in late spring. Since this was too late to prune back before the season started I did some research and found this:

I have tried it on the leggy stems of some of my DA roses back in April and it has worked on every notch I made above a bud. I left one leggy DA rose to compare to and it still has no growth on the leggy stems except at the top. Wasn’t expecting this to work as really not much about it online. One bud I notched has a thick 50cm stem off it! Just wondered if anyone else has tried this or found it useful?
