Best and most accurate case trimmer

What do you consider the best and most accurate case trimmer. I have an RCBS and I really do not like it.

Henderson or Giraud are the two most popular for “Best” and Accurate.  These are $400-$500 units.

I use a L.E. Wilson one, very precise, works well.  Not super fast but I don’t trim a lot.  With Improved cases you dont need to trim as much.

Been using the Little Crow Gunworks WFT2 trimmer for a few years now and couldn't be happier.  I've had or used numerous different hand crank trimmers in the past and for me the WFT is better in every aspect.  The WFT2 is their version that uses easily changeable inserts for all the different cartridges you may have.  They're super easy to use and cut the neck square and to the exact same length piece after piece.  For me, trimming brass is about as much fun as turning necks and there's a whole lot of things I'd rather do but I can trim 100 pieces of brass with the WFT2, all to the exact same length, chamfer inside and out, in literally just a few minutes.

I have used a few of them.  The Giraud is the best one I have used.  If you are going to do anything more then a few rounds and you are a serious reloader, it's the way to go.

The WFT works if you just need to do a few rounds but isn't up to serious work (hundred's or thousands), your hands/fingers will take a beating and it doesn't chamfer so you will have to add another step in the process.  It is accurate enough and I keep it handy when I just want to test a handful of rounds.

I just switched from an rcbs trim pro to a Wilson and it was night and day. The Wilson’s are a little more time consuming but the precision and ease of trimming is ten times better. The micrometer is sweet. The only downside is you have to buy the cartridge-specific collars.

The WFT2 are great when you have have hundreds of cases, or just 50. If you have a Dillon and have thousands of cases to trim, you could use their trimmer as well.

I liked the concept but couldn't get any consistency with their original.  I'll have to revisit it with their revised version.
