Baader versus Astronomik for LRGB and HaSIIOIII

About to upgrade to 2 inch filters .

Have been imaging in 1 1/4, but with the Atik 4000 its becoming a bit dim and need full light for the bigger chip.

Need to choose between Baader and Astronomik as the sets are about the same in price (Astronomik slightly more)

The pass through Wave length bands are totally different for each brand. The Baader have steeper cut offs, where the Astronomik allow some overlaps which give a differnet result.
Both claim to exclude as much LP as possible.

Anyone experienced both? I currently have Astronomik and quite like the colour tones, but heard that Baader produce some richness and sharpness to the image?
