Which style of bottle you want is really a matter of personal preference. Either style will work just fine as long as they are strong enough to hold the pressure. Just make sure you are using reusable bottles rather than the ones meant to be used once and discarded. The flip top bottles eliminate the hassle of using a capper but sometimes the wire toggle thing will weaken and not hold the top securely or slip of off the bottle when you try to seal it. These problems can usually be corrected by bending the wire with a pair of pliers. The rubber seals can be reused many times as long as they are sanitized each time. If begin to form cracks, they should be replaced.
