Default Ludwig P85 v P86 strainers

This is my first post here, so please forgive me if this has already been covered in a previous thread.

I recently bought a 1970s Ludwig Acrolite snare, blue and olive badge. The previous owner replaced the P85 strainer with a P86 at some point.

I was going to switch it back to a P85, to return it closer to its original state, but I have read conflicting reports as to which is better.

Is this simply a matter of preference? Or is one considered better/more user-friendly than the other?

Interested to hear some views..

Thanks in advance,
