Welcome to Librarium Online!
my current army utlizes a squad of 8 normal genestealers un morphed.
i was considering for the same amount of pts a squad of 8 hormagaunts with adrenal glands, and a squad of 8 spinegaunts
which would be more effective on a long table
the 16 gaunts or the stealers
Haruko put that thing down

We are not your worst nightmare--- We are your EVERY nightmare
Depends on what else you use.
~Are you lacking numbers? If so then gaunts
~Do you have sufficient numbers but are lacking rending? If so then the stealers'
if u are playimg vs an army with good saves (SM, necrons..) genes if you are facing an army with low saves (IG, orcs..) gaunts
To answer the part about the long table,gaunts and stealers move at the same speed, with an addendum. Hormies have the extended charge, but, 'stealers can get scuttlers. The stealers get an extra" at the start of the game, hormies get an extra" on the charge.
