Default [Q] [POLL] Which recovery do you use?

Hello,
With all the questions and threads going on about lost IMEIs and problems with recoveries, I figured there should be a thread/poll dedicated to which recovery most of the nexus5 owners are using.

I guess it would also be helpful if people post their success rates in flashing/wiping using the said recoveries.

Three available recoveries atm:
1) TWRP official 2.6.3.4
2) CWM official 6.0.4.5
3) CWM unofficial 6.0.4.5 by Playfulgod

I get my nexus tomorrow so I guess I shall post it then

TWRP 2.6.3.4

I haven't had any problems with this version. But when I had an earlier version (2.6.3.2 maybe?) It took forever to wipe the cache and dalvik. It also borked my cache part after a restore without doing a first boot, this gave me like 3 cache partitions lol. Reflashing cache via fastboot fixed it. Seems the problem is fixed in the new 2.6.3.4 version though.

Best of threads are generally frowned on but oh well.
I use twrp 2.6.3.4 for three reasons.
Officially supported by @Dees_Troy
Easy straightforward operation
Was 'early' reported issues with official cwm note I said early once I flashed twrp I've stayed with it.
