Default Superior 2.0 or EZ drummer?

I am an edrummer. I play an electric drum kit and TD-3 Roland drum module. Which of these is the best and why for recording into Pro Tools 8 M-powered using a Fast Track Ultra 8R?

I am buying one or the other today if I can get some good advice. I am leaning towards EZ just because it' cheaper.

If you want e-Drum support inside Pro Tools, Superior is better.

FWIW, ezdrummer triggers fine from my Roland TD-10 kit. But the Nashville expansion pack should definitely be on your wish list as it sounds better(to me anyway) than the stock pop/rock kit. SD 2 does have a lot of nice features though. While I have ezdrummer with a few expansion kits, SD 2 is getting added within the next week or so(supposedly, SD 2 can access all the ezdrummer sounds and mix.match from all the kits).

One thing that does NOT work good on my setup(hopefully SD 2 will fix) is that I cannot choke a cymbal like I can with the stock Roland sounds(which are lame next to ezdrummer).
