Both are fine antennas for portable, temporary work, and will serve you in good stead.
For ease of deployment, my new fave has become the EARCHI multiband endfed. A 31 foot wire and an easy to build 9:1 UNUN. I only need to worry about getting one end up to a suitable height, rather than two. (The NorCal works better as a flat top than as a sloper)
John,I have used the NorCal Doublet made from both ribbon cable and zip cord. It has performed well for me as both a flat top doublet and a sloper in several Flights of the Bumblebees. I have used it with a K1 and the autotuner handled it with no problem.
