I just use them but here's my take:
  1. CWM - Older and more known. Works when all others may fail.
  2. Philz - Almost the same as CWM but has more features - including touch for some devices when CWM doesn't have it - and little extra features like cleaning for new ROM which automatically does what you need.
  3. TWRP - IMO it's prettier and has very good features - but the support on devices is less than the older CWM.

So currently I use PhilZ, but using AROMA for GAPPS seems like TWRP would have worked - failed on PhilZ. Found workarounds.

As stated, everyone has reasons for their choices and preferences. Really, I didn't see that much of a pull to go TWRP (used on other devices) since I had alternatives, and I didn't need to go CWM because - IMO - PhilZ is the same with added features.

I have only used TWRP, stock recovery and CF-Auto-Root custom recovery that flashes SuperSU.

It was fun helping Phil port his recovery to other devices, but it is now deprecated, and the dev no longer active. TWRP is the way forward now.
