"jumbo fret" vs "6105 fret" -help!

it's a hard choice for me between 77fp & 7vwh, so, the durable of this two type fret will do lots help for me. appreciate for your opinion!

the FP has 6100 frets and the VWH 6105's, neither is more durable, just a different shape. The 6100 is a jumbo wide, while the 6105, is a jumbo, but it's taller and narrower.

Stainless frets are fine, but other than a Parker, I don't know of any guitars that come with them. Also, some people don't like the feel of them, and, they are not available in the 6105, or 6100 shape, I've looked. Plus, you need to then get your axe refretted, and a refret with SS frets will be probably double what a regular fret job is.

the 6100s give that "scalloped" feel. Really good for bending and vai-bratos

Warmoth uses stainless frets now. These have a tang, unlike the Parkers. I assume they'll be harder to work with, though Warmoth only charges $20 more than regular frets. I'm assuming Dunlop makes them.

The size is close to a 6150 - .107 x .52 - between a 6100 and a 6105.

Of the 2 mentioned, the 6100 may last a little better just BECAUSE of its size, but that's about it.
