When choosing which gyro will work for your needs, consider the weight of ALL your equipment, including lenses, quick release systems, anything you are attaching to the gyro must be taken into account. More weight will limit the gyros' effectiveness and you may have to consider stepping up to a larger gyro.
You must also consider where, when and how you will be using the gyro. If you are subjecting the gyro to rougher situations, such as heavy seas or air turbulence, a heavier gyro will serve you better than a lighter one. You just can't argue with physics!
Another factor is your level of experience. As you learn to let the gyro do what it is designed to do, your results will improve. You must always remember, the gyro wants to stay on target and stabilize whatever it is attached to, but if you are not allowing it to react freely to outside forces, it cannot do it's job. If you hold onto it too tightly, it is trying to stabilize you, if you attach it to anything, it will try to stabilize whatever it is attached to. If used with a mount, all the above still applies, a light touch just to guide the gyro is important
