Default pearl 2000 series roadster, roc 'n' soc or tama ergo rider

I am in need of a new drum throne and I want a high quality one which will last a long long time. I have been looking at 3 different drum thrones, they are all roughly the same price and I have tried all 3 and I was impressed with them all.
These 3 are:

* pearl 2000 series roadster
* roc 'n' soc
* Tama ergo rider


What one would you recommend and why?

The Roc'n'soc with a backrest. I saved some $$ and got the ergo rider which was comfy, but i couldn't get good speed or control with double bass unless i sat on the edge and then it wasn't comfy at all. When some buddies of ours moved into our studio with us, the drummer brought his roc'n'soc, which i started using and i loved it. Great control and speed with double bass and maintained comfort. I'm selling my tama and buying the roc'n'soc.

dios is right, for db work, your seat is going to matter a bit more.
For anything else, it's comfort, comfort, comfort.
I have a Roc-N-Soc, and the Ergo rider.

I've had the RNC for about 9 years (or more, lost count), and the Tama for about 31/2-4 years.

Both are road worthy, comfortable seats, and I don't think you'd go wrong with either of them.
Sit on each set at the height you like and see which one feels better right away.

With the Ergo, there is a black plastic insert on the seat bottom. It's there if you like the top to swivel a little, but I took mine out--I prefer it stay put, but I have heard of them breaking from a GC drum dept manager I know. That was a couple years ago, and they may have fixed that. Just passing the info on.

With a backrest, I liked the Ergo better than the RNC (when I tried them out), but it makes the seat pretty heavy. If the shop has them check that out too--unless you don't care about a backrest.
