Filter Socks

I’m about to order some 4” felt socks and was wondering what’s better and why 200 or 100 micron filters? Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

I've used both in the past and both did the job, one potentially clogs quicker. For me more on quality and I've had some after a couple of times in washing machine fall apart and other that last for a long time.

I've used 100 micron felt for the past 13 years but I believe 200 micron is the new norm now.
