Well the one that I am running is the TOP photon. Which is probably the best bang for your buck. The TC5 is pretty good too. If you are looking to spend a lot then the Xray is a solid platform with a lot of support. But for me TOP is the way to go right now.

IF you are not running a super seed control. mamba or tekin then around 4 or 4.5 FDR is what was being run. If you have a mamba or tekin then closer to 6.5-7 FDR is not uncommon. I think I am at 6.7. And that is with the mamba.
