When I did only HTs, I always liked the ones with a pea and kept two on the lanyard in case one froze up. I was always able to convey more with the pea. Running FTs with a fast dog, I need to be able to reach out and tap them, so I use the Burns Green monster. It isn't as good close up, but when you need to stop them at distance in heavy wind or something it gets the job done.
