Shield Questions

So I have been using Elf's shield. It is too heavy for me and I think a little too big, so I am going to order a shield blank. (Yay for birthday monies!) Anywho, I have a bunch of questions that I am not finding the answers to online, so I thought I would put them out here for my friends with their vast array of knowledge.

What is the difference between 6061 T6 Aluminum (.100 thickness) & 7075 T6 Aluminum (.090 thickness)?

Is there a formula for determining your shield size for a heater? What elements of someone's fighting style would make it more advantageous to vary from that formula and how?

What are the advantages/ disadvantages of using a flat heater vs. a curved heater?

If I order it cut for a handle, would I be able to use that to mount a standard shield basket, or would I need to drill anyway?

Using the trim lock, do I still need to have edging holes?

I think that's it for now.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I think I need a fighting icon...
