If you were considering an AF3 or 3P, would you go for the Graham 10" or 12" arm?

The price differential at that point isn't huge, and I've always liked the sound of 12" arms, but I know some of you could convince me the 10" is the better way to go.

Using AF3P my recommendation would depend on the other tonearms you are using or you are planning to use.Up to two tonearms different sizes of arm length are not a problem, but with 3 or 4 tonearms it is much better to combine similar sizes, otherwise you will have close to touch conditions for the arms not in use.
