What are the differences in the two? I've never used TT's before, but what kind of tricks do hard TT's use and what are the soft TT's used for?

With one it is easier to do bill switches and "coin" switches. The other, things like vanishing hankey and cigarettes. I would just go ahead and get both since they are so cheap. Good luck.

Hard plastic comes off your thumb easier. Great for silks, and other items you want to re-produce.
Soft plastic is a little bit more comfortable.
Super Soft Vinyl grips a lot. They don't come off your thumb easy when there is a tight fit. Perfect for liquids, and salt.

But really, it is personal preference, and fit. If either is fit properly, you can do it all.

The hard ones are a harder plastic, and make it easier to slip things in and out of. The soft ones are made of a more rubbery plastic, so they have more grip, and are able to hold larger loads.

So Basically, hard ones are for basic vanishes of silks and cigarettes?

And softer ones are for salts and larger loads then?

Pretty much. Although in theory you could switch the TTs and the loads around pretty easily. It honestly doesn't make that much of a difference what type of TT you are using.

I realize this post is from YEARS ago, but thought I would comment anyways:
I just got into TT's and I prefer the hard ones because it is easier to slip things in and out (this includes bill switches, silks, tissues, restorations, etc.) The hard ones also hold salt well if you make sure you get a tight squeeze on it, which isn't hard to do.

The soft TTs are necessary for anything "clingy", meaning coins, paper clips, and the like. In a hard TT, these items will cling together and create more sound; however, in soft TT, the clinging is much softer or completely absent. The soft TTs, for me, are much harder to get off, heavier, and less comfortable actually. I only use the soft for "clingy" materials. I wish I liked the soft TTs more because you can do everything in them (in a hard TT, as mentioned, the "clingy" items are difficult or impossible due to fit).

Hope this helps if anybody is reading this anymore.
