Default Need Homebrewtalk Members help on ordering new kegs!

This is Todd with Kegconnection. We did a listing late last week mentioning we had kegs back in stock in 2.5 and 5 gallon. We also did an announcement saying that we were now carrying 5 gallon kegs with rubber tops. I was a little surprised how well these sold over the weekend. We did not order a large quantity of the rubber top kegs because frankly I did not think people would be willing to pay more for them. We also did not order any 3 gallon kegs because the 2.5 gallon were selling so well, but now we are out of the 3 gallon kegs. So here is my question. IF you were in the market for a new keg which kegs would you prefer?

5 gallon keg with metal strap handle

5 Gallon keg with rubber top ($13.50 more)

3 Gallon Keg

2.5 Gallon keg

All feedback is greatly appreciated. We are going to order another container of kegs very soon and I am worried that our "Mix" may not be correct. These take about 2 to 3 months to arrive, so pre-planning is very important.
Thanks,
Todd

I'd prefer the 3-gallon and the 5-gallon with the rubber top.

I would prefer the 3 gallon and 5 gallon keg with metal strap handle. I own both types of the 5 gallon kegs and I don't see the benifit of the rubber top. Especially when the rubber tops start falling apart.

I have a Braumeister 20L and it's perfect for 6 gal batches and the 3 gal kegs are my choice as I can get 2 from each brew-day.

I see that the replies are all across the board here. I would go for the 5 gal w/metal strap, but would also take a rubber top one also. The price difference is really not a issue as much as availability would be. Unfortunately, when I need one, I need it soon.
