45-105 or 40-100 ?
I've always played 45-105's but I was thinking of trying 40-100's, is there that much of a distinguishable difference between the two gauges?

@Kev I thought it would be higher too. 100's are nice to play and I'll definitely keep at least one bass with them on.
If you re-string to a lighter gauge (re-tuning to original pitch) then the tension on the neck from the strings is reduced (generally for same / similar string construction).
This will reduce the neck relief. ie lower action.
But you may need to re-adjust to get same playability in terms of fret buzz etc.
