Default Wapsi bugger chenille?

What size of Wapsi Woolly Bugger chenille would you guys recommend for buggers tied on 3X long hooks in sizes 8 and 10? I was thinking about using medium because I've always used medium chenille and didn't have any issues, but I was wondering if smaller would be better since this chenille is a little more bulky.

Small size works just fine.

Thanks for the info folks, it never occurred to think about different size chenille! I have been using medium on everything but that is fixing to change.
