Default Coated vs Clear!

My friend is always saying i shouldnt buy clear drum skins, because coated are the best and take longer to wear out. what do you think? what do you use?

Cheers
Manni

coated heads have a warmer tone, they do not last longer then clear coated, because the coating does not protect the plastic, in most cases.

It's been my experience that they wear out in the same amount of time, but clears lose their definition/brightness a little sooner (they have more to lose, though).
