Lots of choices, lots of opinions. My top choices are 5150 and black widow. I pulled towards the 5150 because of the stupid proof warranty but am open to suggestions. I've thought about using them for turn signals and addition brake lights but am not sure.
Why should I choose one over another?

Never heard of black widow but their imagery looks straight out of Amazon. I’d suggest the 5150s. Personally my next set will be buggy whips... I’m tired of Amazon whips falling to pieces on me.

R1 for me. Same warranty as 5150 I believe. No issues yet but don’t have that many miles on them.

I have whips and rock lights from Infinite Offroad.

They have the best warranty. Even if you break it on purpose they cover it.

5150 or NoCo, can’t go wrong with either. I have the 5150 but chose not to use the turn signal function, I don’t see it as needed and most people on the road wouldn’t know a blinking whip was for a turn.

I have 5150 whips. I had one fail before a trip and they were nothing but helpful. We tried to get me a replacement before we left town, but shipping constraints prevented that. The 5150 crew were willing to let me take out the defective whip, use it and then send it back to them for a full replacement. Amazing customer service!

My next door neighbor has 5150 whips. One whip lasted about 20 minutes before quitting. For what ever reason he hasn't replaced it.

My cheapy Amazon whips are working fine after 500+ miles in the AZ desert. Even if they do quit, I still ahead in price if I have to replace them a couple of times. I'm retired an my labor is free.

Did you like Buggy Whips ? :p
Just preaching about well made products. Listen, the 5150's, gorillas, etc are all good products, and they have neat features, but if you ever get a chance to look at both buggy whips and any others side by side, you will absolutely see the quality difference just from visual inspection. Yes, they're more, but these are made like products you pass down to your kids where the others are more of a use for 3 years, and then dispose. Just my opinion, vendors, please don't shoot the messenger.

We run Gorilla Whips and they are nice.

RedneckWhips are my new go to. I run the Stacker Xtreme since they have the most unique patterns I've seen. I personally really like what I call the "Tetris mode." You'll see what I mean here:
