Default Which Tonneau Cover

Hey all, I am looking into a tonneau cover for my truck and I believe I have narrowed it down to either the Retrax Pro or the Bakflip G2 or HD. Does anyone have any experience with either one. I am leaning more towards the Bakflip because I had a Roll n' Lock on my Duramax and I have not been happy with its performance in our frigid climate. The cover itself is great but it would often freeze shut, trapping whatever I had stored in the box (most often it was my hockey gear right before a game). Is the Retrax any better for that or should i just steer clear of roll tops in general. Any help or other suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm going with the G2 once I have the funds. I've researched this extensively and talked to another RAM owner in person who had the G2 on his 11' Outdoorsman, I was very impressed with the F&F. He had it on for 2 years and it looked brand new.

Yeah thats kinda the way I have been leaning. I may step up to the HD just for durability sake. Thanks for the input.

Got a G2 a month or two ago and so far pretty happy. Brother has had one on an import for years and it has held up. I think you're right about snow being a possible problem for rolling tonneaus.
