(The following discussion has been moved from the article page:)
Tom: I am curious, what is the most desirable thickness for stones? I don't want to purchase any too thick, but of course not too thin. I guess its a matter of personal taste, but does anyone have any preferences? Its hard to find a place to test different sizes.
- Zarlan: Well, I have a 8mm set and a 9mm set, and personaly I prefer 9mm or maybe stones that are slightly, but not all that much, bigger. 8mm isn't bad though, but smaller stones probably would be.
- pwaldron: For what it's worth, I had the chance to compare once and found my preference to be for 9.2 mm stones. They are large enough to give a feeling of substance, but any larger and the stones wobble around too much on the board.

Bass: 9.2 mm or 9.6 mm will feel nice and hefty while still looking good. Anything over 7 mm is usable, but if you go over 11mm, the stones will start to look like marbles.
