The usual disclaimers about personal preference aside, I think lever ergonomics/action makes a bigger difference than what post you choose in many cases. An example I often use is Race Face Aeffect w/ ReMote v. Turbine R (Fox Transfer) with those brands’ remotes.  If you’re showrooming dropper posts the Transfer/TurbineR is one of the smoothest posts out there but if forced to choose between one with a Fox/RF remote or the much cheaper Aeffect with a Wolf Tooth ReMote, I’d go Aeffect with the Wolf Tooth ReMote everyday.   Plenty of racers out there who agree with me. A couple years ago at CrankWorx I snapped pics of a few different factory racers’ bikes with ReMotes installed. PNW Loam lever also very good as is the, although huge, E13 remote. All comes to leverage and a cartridge bearing.
