Both options have their pros and cons. A small tank will allow you to play tighter, more easily than a big tank. You can do it with a big tank, but it won't be as easy and it may be a bit cumbersome. Big things happen within seconds, and the ability to switch hands while crouched down behind a small bunker a fraction of a second faster may make the difference between success and failure.
On the same token, a small tank doesn't allow you to hold the gun as steady, instead of pressing it into your shoulder and supporting the weight of the gun it is harder to do. Laning and posting will be affected, you'll find it's a bit more difficult to do with a smaller tank. With a small tank you can easily lose control and miss some shots that you could have hit. You're shooting at spots that are maybe only an inch wide, the ability to put a steady stream into that inch may make the difference.
Despite popular opinion(or hope) there isn't something that can fit every mold, you have to make sacrifices somewhere in order to get the benefits elsewhere.
Most everyone but dedicated snake players normally chose the 68/45 because of the better handling, however, some of the front guys that want to squeeze a little bit tighter into their bunkers. So they go with a 45/45
It's all up to the individual and what you value most.
