Default Covering material - the good and the not so good

Had to use 3 different brands on my GP Cap - Oracover, Solarfilm and Monokote. You would not think that polyester film could differ so much. My favourite is the Oracover metallic gold - it does not melt but sticks and shrinks beautifully - any wrinkles are a cinch to remove. At the other end of the scale is Monokote - thick, heavy and insensitive to heat, almost like they designed it to require the TF heatgun to shrink it tight. Solarfilm is the opposite, low heat sensitivity but prone to burning and melting. At least its light. If I only ever used Oracover again I'd be happy. Anyone else have any opinions.
