Which floating row cleaners do you guys like?

Looking to add floating row cleaners with clean sweep to our JD 1760 with XP row units. Will be planting corn in field cultivated bean stubble and we are transitioning into no till soybeans. Will probably plant some beans into tilled corn stalks. Also would a spiked wheel be better than a shark tooth? Thanks in advance!

Really like Dawn Gfx’s. Great control and cleaning. Not attached to row unit to put vibration or strain on it and the bushings.

The suncos were shark tooth

The Martin we use now are spiked wheels
