Kink Relief vs Premium C-Clamp

which one dose every one thinks looks better out of Kink Relief or Premium C-Clamp (and now Demolition F1)
they both have the same reach and weigh the same but i will be running a gyro with it
(kink has no gyroplate)

EDIT;
i dont want a stem that has pinch bolts behind the stem, so NO solid's or redneck's or 95% of the other stems like that on the market
and as a personal preferance i HATE the odyssey elementry stem (U.G.L.Y.)
so does anyone know of other stems that dont have the clamp behind the stem??? I kinda like the demolition F1

i also have a new preferance to help narrow down the list of stems, i want a stem that drops the bar height! aparently it helps with nose manuals which is where im at now.

Kink relief looks the better of the two.

Just get a Solid or a Redneck. Kinks blows, and that Premium one seems pretty sketchy.

The Macneil Cell is kinda plain and I think the Redneck XLT looks cooler than the regular size one. The Elementary looks pretty cool. I really really like the S&M Race XLT stem. It looks sooo awesome.

i love my macneil, it looks the way a stem is supposed to, smooth and clean, not all drilled and s*** on the outside like some.

Thats exactly why I chose the Fit S-2, it's clean looking.

I'm still all about the Redneck LT. The XLT's are okay, but the LT looks the best.

I like the Elementary, but I like the Macneil as well. There are a lot of good stems out.
