Tracking EQ: Tubetech PE1 C vs Api 550

I need a really good tracking EQ and my main candidates are Api 550a,550b or Tube Tech PE1C.
I know they are different animals. I barely had the chance to work with the 550 I remember a really good impression but i spent so little time with it so i´m doubtful... I´m so familiar with the Pultec style of TubeTech and i like it very much. Specially his ability to make the signals bigger.
¿What would be your choice for tracking Eq? Main differences between the Api and the tube design EQ?

If the EQs are anywhere near as good as the compressors as in the CL1B go for the techs, but the 550 are killer. Its a question do you want that API sound or the sheen galore. Never regret buying my 2 CL1B, think i paid 1300 each which was a steal.
