    8 will give better flow and easier on the pump. 6 is lighter and easier to manage.

    6mm will require higher flow rate on your varistream

    8mm will take up more space on your hose reel aswell

    i use 8mm myself :)

    I got one van on 6mm and one van on 8mm, personally i love the 6mm as its much easier to wind in and doesnt strain my elbows, used to get alot of pain in elbow using 8mm all week. Soon will be changing the 8m van to 6mm. Dont really notice much on flow rates myself.
