Dimension X for new large hinge plus table nest

So, I've read lots of posts, some of which seem to suggest that the TNW "Dimension X" should be reduced for the table nest - I think it should be increased!
I was aiming for c 17" but wonder if I need to extend this a little?
So what is a good dimension X for a table for a Large with the new style (Acacia handle) bands?
Also - out of curiosity do people prefer their eggs on the left or on the right

    I believe 15" is all you need.  The new bands def require less clearance.  I have at least 2 inches of play and I built my table at 15" -- (that's from the egg base to the the table top).  Using a table nest that's 1.75" tall means you can drop your egg base by that much. 

    It also becomes about " how high do I want my egg?"  Personally I prefer it to sit lower.

    Thanks, yes I want my egg as low as possible in the table, on a table nest for charring safety.
