There is plenty of discussion regarding fret saws, setting your fret, fret slot dept,  etc.  I haven't been able to find very much discussion about the different types and sizes of fret wire.  When I placed a reorder with Gitty for fret wire, I accidently ordered a smaller (not much) fret wire.  Then I noticed the frets on my Alverez of 40 years ago that I pulled out of storage, had thin flat topped frets.  can someone shed some light on the subject.  which is better, which makes for easier play?

I like the low profile fret wire - banjo / dulci size...since 90% of my builds have a dulci fretting.
