I’ve had both and either is a good hammer. I currently use a 20oz Douglas that I think is the best hammer I’ve ever had in my 40 plus years as a carpenter. But they are not cheep $60 plus. If I’m not swinging this I use a 16oz Estwing with a blue handle or for fine work my 13oz Blugrass. I started out as a young man swinging a 16oz hollow steel handled True Temper, broke a lot of those.

You’ll go through many hammers in your life so enjoy each one as your craftsmanship improves.
corrected to an estwing because Sawkerf made me realize I messed up
