What is the best diagonal

Hello all,

I’m looking to upgrade my diagonal. It’s hard to pick with so many options. Just want to get a consensus of what everyone believes to be the best 2” diagonal. I’ll be pairing it with a Stellarvue SV105 APO refractor with a focal length of 735mm. 

I’ve already upgraded all my eyepieces to Televue’s and was considering the same with the diagonal. But there is also the Baader clickwheel I’ve heard great things about as well.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Why don't you get the one from Stellarvue for your stellarvue refractor?

I like that easy clean feature depicted in their link and the twistlock collet. 
I've got an old 1.25" stellarvue unit with an enhanced silver mirror in it and it performs splendidly after decades of use.
