why would someone choose the 10mm vs. 8mm version?
The added weight, and width makes it easier to through, and more stable in flight. The 10mm is easier to learn on, carriers more energy to the target, and is more stable in flight. While the 8mm requires a lighter touch, and will be better suited for the non-beginner.
