Some Notes:
Balsa Testsuite is one of shortest and smallest books (92 KB) in the whole tour
It's based on Balsa v1600 suite's lines, which is available as updated testset: Balsa
SCCT is based on Perfect 2017 book, but tuned to play the wins up to 35 moves
CK book (up to 35 moves) is optimized to prefer Clemens Keck's used openings
GBSelect book (up to 35 moves) is tuned to play Graham Banks's used openings
HS-Masterbook 2.0 (by Harry Schnapp) is the biggest book in size (182 MB)
Feobos v10 C5 is a new book by Frank Quisinsky, played the vers. Contempt 5
CCRL, CEGT, FGRL, TCEC etc. are up to 35 moves too, tuned to play the wins...
Baracuda2017 is another tiny book (used Marijan's recommended book settings)
More info about GMs 1-5, SALC, SSDF etc. please see the tourney's conditions
WorldChamps is the smallest one (57 KB) available as testset at Noomen's site
TopGM_8move book (up to 8 moves) is optimized to play Paul's used openings
SPCC is based on Hert opening suite, but tuned to play the wins up to 35 moves
Noomen Testsuites is a small book too (based on various J. Noomen's test suites)
Prodeo.bin is based on old Rebel's book, available for downloading at Rebel13.nl
There are books too, based on GMs players openings (Carlsen, Euwe, Fischer etc.)
The bin ones are usually own engine books (Galjoen03601, Marvin22, Shield2 etc.)
Note that these books have no much chances to be ranked at one of the Top places
E.g, comparing them with the current Top books: Vitamin, Ranomi, InfiPlay...
Due to such books are short in strong lines, plus include a lot of critical openings
Anather BIG dissadvantage is that, all of them prefer many various openings...
But however, it seems some of them (e.g Balsa, SCCT, GMs 1-5..) have less holes...
