G/B Benders for Telecaster

What are the pros and cons of the different types of benders today?
"hip" benders
what else?

I've got the Hipshot on one of my Teles. Pros are no carving into the guitar. Some people don't like using their hip for the bend. G bend is done with a palm lever.

i would go with the Gene Parsons bender, it dose require someone who knows what they are doing to install one.
i was one of a very few individuals certified by Gene Parsons to do the install.
as it is no walk in the park i would say find a shop he has certified.
Gene's bender work better then any of the others i have seen.
