At least you can tell for what?
What are your expectations and requirements?
What material you prefer?
What is the height you're looking for?

Be a bit more specific, without any reference it will become a nonsense topic, imo.

Adding to this: 31.8mm diameter; navy blue (as close to the Chris King Navy as possible); durable; for a Merlin Ti bike. Height isn't really an issue

Several people have had those yuniper/mt zoom/ax lightness ones snap out of the blue while riding. In terms of alloy the tune ones as recommended or the carbon-ti are light and great. I have used a carbon ti for years with reg travel and seatpost adjustments without issue and it looks great and colours are beautiful

I have a Yuniper, it's ok and with a great light weight but I swapped the original ergal screw bolt, which was too frail, with one in titanium

Has anybody seen the ControlTech Timania seatpost clamp? While not Chris King Navy, the natural Ti would match my Merlin nicely
