I was just about to comment when I saw this. A lot of our app is built with classes and Redux. When working with bigger projects and bigger data calls I find classes handle the state in a way that is cleaner to debug.
I will often have a data layer that is Class and a the children are functional for this reason. But it is really personal preference .
I would also like to add a good developer knows all the tool available to them and is able to chose the correct one for the job, using only functional components and hooks because they are new and cool is not always the best way to go.
