Your choice of manifold is going to have basically nothing to do with the quality of your beer. The grain bed does the filtering.

Pros for a braid - the wort clears faster. The grain compacts around it quickly and sets. Easy to remove and clean.

Pros for manifold - creates uniform flow through the grain bed and allows fly sparging if you ever go that route. Can be designed to dip low and minimize dead space.

I think the things i've read they are using fly sparging.

Thanks
No, grain bed depth doesn't matter in batch sparging. Beer quality won't be affected by either a manifold or braid. I have used a 48 qt. cooler with a braid for 431 batches over 15 years and wouldn't consider anything else.
