Which snorkel is better?

I've been using Cressi Tao and no complain. Now, I plan on getting several Sherwood Sabre. Does anyone know which of these is better, or they are all the same?
Thanks.

I wouldn’t get either. Just get a simple J snorkel with a nice mouth piece. Extra valves and junk aren’t necessary. Omer Zoom and The Mares Dual snorkel are both nice

...Over the years, we found that diameter is more important than brand. The larger the diameter, the better...It makes for less work on your lungs to pull in air..
...As said, valves and gadgets just create problems, especially if you beach dive where sand can jam the valves and sunlight will create cracks and leaks over time.

+1 for a big bore. The fewer gadgets the better. My favorite had two fittings to adjust the angle.

Agree.

The best one (for me) in market right now is the Seac Jet snorkel.
