Default Front Brake line - two line vs three line setup

Are there any differences in performance? Why do they offer two types? I'm looking at the HEL or G&J stainless steel lines.


EDIT: G&J, not A&G. Don't know where that came from

Better feel at the lever with the 2 line set IMO.

Thanks. I did search for it, but didn't find anything

I think I'll be getting 2 line.

Some will argue that the size/volume of the master cy was only designed for a single split set up (3 line).
Personally I dont think it makes much difference

I prefer single line down to the right caliper then cross over to the left side but they look ugly on the Kat. look great on the gixxer/r6 etc and keeps weight down

Im running a 2 line Russel set up seems to work fine.

But... 2 line, 3 line... both still have only a single split. The only difference is where it's located after the master output. Both are after so any idiot that would argue that simply isn't thinking it through.
