    No I didn't notice any difference. But since I have the choice, does one stand out slightly better then the other? Maybe girdle thickness or table %?

    The difference is really very minor.Considering the same price and that the first one has slightly less weight, I wouldn't favor anyone specifically.

    A smaller table in theory suggests more fire, all other things being equal. The smaller table one also looks as though it could have slightly better spread because of a thinner girdle but the numbers aren't really a good enough description of the whole girdle to know. Better to trust the diameter measurements than hopes based on a possibly thinner girdle.
