I own both the PB701MF and the PB701MH and love both of them. Both will throw 1/2 oz great, not sure which one I would pick. They both weigh about the same and feel similar. Depends on how much power you want. The PB701MF has an IP of 690gm with an AA of 78, the PB701MHF has an IP of 800 gm and an AA of 78. So both are very powerful and very fast.

Not much, the last 14" or so of the butt is equiradius. Making it easy to fit winding checks if you use them. Just buy one size.
