tiller autopilot brand

Anyone have any experience with either of the following tiller pilots?

Raymarine ST 2000+

Simrad TP 22

They seem similarly sized appropriately for my 33 footer for coastal/inshore use. The Raymarine seems to have a quicker stop to stop time. Wondering about effectiveness and reliability.

Thanks!

I have a St 2000+ haven't had any problems with it however I don't use it much so haven't tested its limits.

Re: tiller autopilot brand

the lon g and short of my several month research was the 2000+ leaked and the simrad worked well and did not leak. I choose the tp32 for power consumprtion as I voyage.
