The main difference between the classic Wrap style and the Crown-Knot is the absence of metal fastening the crown knot. The difference in weight, burn time or flame size is negligible. There is no difference in overall performance, safety or the ability to re-wick.
Spines: Longer spines increase overall diameter of the firehoop, decreasing clearance when hooping on the vertical plane. Shorter spines are preferred by most.
Mini Wrench: Make sure you have a mini-wrench to tighten a removable spine. They should not be able to be unscrewed by hand.
