dedacciai SAT vs EOM?

What are the strengths/weaknesses of SAT vs EOM tubing. I was interested in a bike on ebay that I thought was EOM but may be SAT. I know that EOM is the latest but is there a big difference? Thanks!!!

The EOM tubes tend to be slightly larger in diameter and a little thinner than the SAT tubes. Check out the tube specs at http://www.dedacciai.com/home_eng.html

Tubes get stiffer as they grow in diameter, and thinner tubes tend to be lighter. Drawback is that thinner tubes dent easier. Both of these tubesets are killer thin and light so if you want something more middle of the road you are looking in the wrong area.
