Default Muzzle Brake Dilema

I am currently in the process of building my first AR-15. I only need to add a few more parts to male it truly mine. So the question I pose is......What's better as far as recoil reduction, accuracy retention, and scary goods looks.
-Tromix Shark Brake at $85
Or
-BattleComp 2.0 Muzzle Brake at $165

The Tromix has the look but does it have the stats to back
And the BattleComp has some great reviews, but does it have the bite, and is it worth nearly doubling the cost???
Opinions please!

It's not a select fire, what do you need a brake for?

I'd think you would be more interested in a good flash hider.

For your first AR.. just invest in a decent price tag. Dont go all the way up to the roof. Just saying..
Check out the Smith Vortex flash hider. Its about $60 shipped.

I'm really liking this Daniel Defense on my BCM...

It's about $60

If you're looking for a good comp that will get you fast follow up shots, minimize recoil and muzzle climb, then the dynacomp has similar performance as the battlecomp at about half the price.

If you want flash reduction, then the Smith Vortex is probably the best, but the YHM Phantom is pretty close at a more affordable price.

Choices Choies There are a few I been looking at. The Griffin Armament M4SD-II .223/5.56 Tactical Compensator OR Spikes Tactical Dynacomp Extreme Short
I want one that reduces felt recoil and helps muzzle climb.

Rog Tactical , Aim Surplus and Joe Bobs Outfitters All have them

I run a BC and it woks as advertised. No rise in the barrel, just a push back with decent flash suppresion.

Moreover, we are talking about a 223. Yes, it does have a little muzzle whip. But it's nothing like a hunting rifle that rattles your dental work. One of the $60 flash hiders will do what you need done, protect your muzzle crown, prevent you from stuffing the barrel full of mud and give you a pointed object on the end of the barrel to break glass or use as a spear.
