14" or 15" New Beats?

I'm looking at some 15" New Beats that I can get for under $200 at a local store. Almost brand new. I was really only looking for 14" originally but this is a good deal. Can anyone tell me the main differences between 14" and 15"? Like is 15" harder to go faster on etc.

I play mostly punk rock/rock...thanks!

Probably a better way to say that is the 15" NB's are less articulate. There's more sustain, power and volume from the bigger hats. The chick might not be as defined as with 14" and so the actual stick definition won't be as...defined.

For punk rock, you won't need articulation as such. That's generalizing because i don't know you as a player or your band/songs but my guess is that you need to go 'loud and proud'. 15" will do very nicely, or even Mastersounds. Also check out 14" Z3 mastersounds or regular hats or even the 15" A Custom. Both are very bright and very 'filling'. By that i mean they have plenty of sustain and high end to really get you heard.
