Default Sabian HHX Groove ride v Zildjian Sweet ride

I am after either of these rides but cant find them within my tight budget atm, they seem to hold their value used. Basically i want a big 21"-22" crash and like the sound of these two. Are there any other alternatives to these as a big crash ?

why not an actual big crash instead of a ride?
the Paiste 2002 series offer 22" and 24" for sure, also there are some Meinl Byzance 21" and 22".
I also see an Istanbul Mehmet 22" Crash/Ride Nostalgia on thomann.

My friend, it sounds like you need an El Sabor. It's only a 20" but its an AA so they can be had for pretty cheap on the used market. I bought a 22" K Dark medium for the main ride and now the El Sabor enjoys the spot of main crash/ride nex to the hats, opens up nicely and offers a brighter washier ride sound than the K. Plus it has a nice big bell. Lets be honest here, who among us doesn't need a nice big bell on their kit?
Classy grip all day.
