Random question to all crafters, have you noticed a significant handicap from going with a higher level tool? I've noticed that with weapons durability loss is much higher, the stats tend to be comparable, switching to better (generally) only a few levels after the optimal rank weapon.
For instance, you're rank 19, how would the R22 tool vs R32 tool fair? I've seen the R32 tool for less gil than the R22 tool in my craft and was curious if I'd suffer significantly for choosing the higher tool.
Edit: Previous research has indicated the increase in durability loss is not as noticeable, so I guess I'm asking more regarding stats, though confirmation/dispute of the durability not being as noticeable would be appreciated.
