I guess the thing to take from this is: preference. I have both. Use them both. Try em both if your able. You can get good ol 3’s and 4’s for 30-40 bucks all day.
I made a custom tote for my no 3 because my large hands didn’t fit. Technically the tote is the same size, but stuffs a little more packed in. I have to put my in index finger extended on the side of the frog/iron on any of the smaller planes.
btw. I have a veritas no 4, and I like my 604 better.
