Whatever you get, add a "tiger tail" as shown on this link.

No recommendation from me - any rubber duckie on any HT is going to have less than stellar performance.  The Tiger Tail can, and does, help.

Looking at available, published specs, neither one stands out.  To reiterate, you are likely to be disappointed with the performance of either antenna on VHF frequencies, at other than line-of-sight distances.

In most cases, including this one, the smaller the antenna, the worse the performance and the more disappointed you're going to be.
