These seem pretty evenly matched, fold to 24 and 26 inches respectively, leg diameter max 1.1 and 1.25 inches, weight 3 versus 4 pounds.

The Amazon USA reviews of the Benro are generally very favorable, but there are some complaints about quality control.

There are no independent reviews of the Audubon unit that I could find, it seems to be an Audubon exclusive.

My $0.02 is that the aluminum unit will be more stable, having only one joint and thicker tubing.
