Default American or Canadian 2 row

i've been brewing with both for a while now, Canadian has been a little cheaper. I can't really tell a difference in the 2. Has anybody else compared the 2?

Some people claim American 2-row has plumper, softer kernels that are easier to mill. Personally, I can't tell a difference (physical or taste) but I wet-condition malt before milling so that may explain some of the difference.

We get Canadian 2-row in our Michigan Masher's group buy...I haven't noticed any differences either.

American's are usually plumper and softer so it's fitting the 2-row is too.

Yes, I prefer corn-fed, fatty 2-row.

I haven't noticed much difference and consider them the same thing.
