    Most kits work with either pattern. It's only a concern if you already have a doubler kit that only has one or the other pattern.

    figure 8 or hourglass is the old school patern... the round one is newer. Doesn't really make much difference, so long as your adapters and cases are the same. ;) Round would probably use less steel/AL in a doubler, so they might be cheaper to make... but I don't remember seeing different prices on them...

    Hmmm, just checking NWF's site. I guess you'll have to specify which pattern you have.

    8 bolt pattern:

    6 bolt round:

    looks to be about the same amount of material either way...
