Whats the best Steering Damper? or no damper at all? hmm...

Ok group. Looking into getting a steering damper. There are lots of options, and two major types to choose from. The rotary damper and the linear.... Here are some brands:
GPR Stabilizer
Hyperpro
Matris Steering Damper
Ohlins Steering Damper
Scotts Damper
Storz Performance..........ETC.......

Anybody have any preferences as to which type they prefer to use?
Or read anything good?
How about a specific brand?
What do you happen to ride?
Do you prefer not to have one?

I have a hyperpro. I like how many different settings of stiffness there are, installs in a snap, cust service is through the roof (just ask anyone who had an older model and needed to have it replaced)

i like my ohlins, its been good to me. adjustable, easy install.
there is a huge difference with or without mine. when i turn it way down now, it feels very strange. after my second tank slapper and second underwear change on a little sunday afternoon ride, i got mine. i think its a great investment.

I've used hyperpro and they're pretty decent, but I have a GPR now and love it

Hyperpro. Fast and easy to install. 21 settings. Can change settings while you ride. It also looks great!

If you like how the rotary one looks, get a Scotts.
If you want the best and/or like the look of the linier one, get an Ohlins.
