epoxy ratios

Can someone explain the advantage or not  of the 5 to 1 ratio epoxy to the 2 to 1 ratio epoxy? I have used both, for a quick mix, the 2/1 seems easier to use without pumps.

The 2 to 1 Epoxy is a non-blush epoxy, low viscosity, and comes in slow, medium and fast hardeners.  The 5 to 1 is not non-blushing and two hardeners, slow and fast.

The 2 to 1 also dries clear.

Amine Blush is a waxy substance that can form on the surface of epoxy resin when it cures.  It needs to be removed with water prior to applying more epoxy or a finish on top.  The 2 to 1 epoxy doesn't blush when curing eliminating that step.
