Fender choices?

A gigantic catch-all for Randonneuring (Audax), Bike-packing (Touring), and Commuting.

Do all these bikes belong to you?? ImageImage quite a collection...
Ahaha, I'm not a hoarder quite just yet! This is where all the abandoned bikes from my complex go to die. Only that and the janky singlespeed on the left are actually mine! Maybe one day I can maybe salvage some of those old bikes in working condition!

On my touring bike, I put on Topeak Defender TX after I had SKS Bluemels fenders on a touring bike I wrecked, but I hated the SKS fenders, they were always going out of adjustment, needed a tool to correct them, rattled like crazy; the Topeak are easy to readjust without tools, stay in adjustment better, and no tool needed to correct them if they do go out, plus they don't rattle.

On my commuter bike all I use is an Ass Saver, works good enough so I don't get a dirt streak on my back.

I had a set of Planet Bike Cascadia fenders and didn't like them, they made a lot of noise and were always going out of adjustment, then the stupid rods were highly susceptible to bending. I heard complaints similar to the SKS's; so I decided to try three-quarter fenders instead of fulls, I got the Topeak Defender TX series fenders, and now I get no noise, they rarely go out of adjust and when they do they're easy to put back, just flip a small lever on the plastic rods, and adjust, then clamp the lever back, no tools needed, unlike the Cascasdias. I thought since they were three-quarter fenders I would have issues with water spray getting on part of the bike, but nope.
