Default Outrigger Clips - What's your Favorite?

I'm in the process of getting a new T-Top put on my boat and it is going to include outriggers. Never had much experience with them so I was wondering about some of your opinions of the different outrigger clips. Are there some favorites or some to avoid? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

AFTCO roller trollers...have used them on three boats with great success...only shortcoming is with very light settings...

Rupps Klickers are nice I use them on my boat and put them on any boat I rig.they are easy to operate heavy or light settings.the releases are simple easy to take of I have used every type of clips out there these perform the best.

i also like the rupps klickers....find they are a good bang, for a decent buck. Don't really like the roller trollers, they don't really allow for lighter settings, i get better adjustment out of the rupps.

Blacks outrigger clips. Reasonable price and easily adjustable for tension settings. Have used my latest set for 3 years with no corrosion or failure problems.

trip ez are the easiest and most durable I have used. Roller trollers have been known to fall apart.

Aftco Roller-Trollers. I have 'em on my outriggers, my center-rigger and my two flat-lines. Just wash them after every trip that sees salt spray hit them, dry them and then lube them with a shot of CRC.

I don't like using WD40 on a boat - it's fish-oil, water and propellant, which means that when it dries, it leaves a film which becomes a sticky mess. Ever seen bunker oil that dries in the sun? Whoo dawggie!
