Fretwire: Jumbo vs. Vintage

i visit a few guitar forums, and i notice on one forum the majority of the players seem to prefer jumbo frets, while on other forums people seem to prefer vintage frets. i've even seen some people go as far as to claim that "Jumbo frets are faster", but i think its more of a matter of opinion. i figured id do a poll since i haven't seen one done yet.

i know there are many different types of fretwire, but in general, do you prefer thinner "vintage" style frets, like those found on JS1000/JS1200 and Jems? or do you prefer the wider style "jumbo" frets like those found on many jacksons and and (i believe) RG's?

ill leave an "other" category open in case you prefer something else. if you choose "other", please be sure to post the type of fretwire you prefer. if this poll ends up with alot of "other" choices, ill make a new poll later and ill include any fretwire listed.

i do have jumbo fetwire on my jackson, it's nice for bends and pull offs. but smaller fret wire feels much smoother and is better for intonation since they are not as wide when they wear.

My vote goes to the tall and skinny frets like the Dunlop 6105's.
