Default Favorite Recovery?

I wanted to make this to see everyone's opinion on the current recoveries. CWM, TWRP, Philz touch, safestrap, etc. Just put what you think is the "best" recovery in your opinion. And explain, if you'd like.

Agreed. Philz looks very cool as well but I haven't had the chance to use it yet. And you say Theme-able. How would I go about changing the theme?

PhilZ is basically CWM with more options. I don't like the way they're structured. Not that they're bad, just not for me.

TWRP... first smart phone was the droid 4 which used safe strap so it's just what I'm used to...

Twrp I used Cwm and philz before, Cwm mod was simple but I didn't know what I was doing most the time other than put rom on sd erase install new rom, then philz which I learned how to use aroma what some of the options were, then Twrp is easy and super convenient.. Because of the interface I prefer to sideload roms and other packages, and I feel like I have more control over the device

Agreed with all of the above! Haven't themed it myself, but TWRP I find is more intuitive to use than CWM.
