Default Aero M vs. CDE caps?

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Aero M caps? Tried to google for the datasheet but didn't come up with anything specific. Right now I have the same specs caps, Aero M and CDE. The Aero is significantly taller (and heavier). Space is not an issue and am still not sure which I'd settle on.

If the production date on the AeroM is 9540, then it is nearing the end of life. CDE says "USA", everything I have gotten from them lately has been Chinese. Don't see a date code. I'm replacing some 10000 uf 100V dated spring 94 because explosions are so messy and burnt transformers are so expensive. twenty years is about average life, depending on the elastomer in the seals. 85 deg C parts don't have the longest life seal, typically.

Aero M! Has a thicker separator and more damping. Lower flicker noise and less other noise.
