those who use Radbot 1k, which non-steady mode do you use?
 
To those of you who use the Radbot 1000, for non-steady mode, which is better, the zZz pop (I guess that refers to the slow blinking?) or the cornea blitz (fast blinking?)? I would prefer something in between these two, but they don't have it. I'm afraid the fast blinking is too annoying to the drivers, but the zZz pop may be too slow so little risky?

I use the slow throbbing mode. I thought the other mode was called zzz pop

I always use the slow throbbing mode on my Radbot 1000 which is mounted on the rack... I also have a PBSF Turbo in default blinking mode on the seatpost.

I use the crazy-fast-occulting mind-warping-pulse mode.
I don't have any empirical basis for the decision, just a "crazy is better" notion.

fast blinking here, also.

I use the fast pulse during the day and slow blink at night. I actually leave it on continuous at night now that I have a cheap blinky mounted to the chain stay.

Slow warble/throbbing mode also. I usually have a second light (Cygolite Hotshot) that's on a faster, more seizure-inducing mode. I just like the contrast.

This. Two lights with different blink rates will make you stand out more from all the other vehicles.
