Those studies are going to vary by location somewhat but with the soil types I have here, the OEM rubbers tend to leave a surface that is vulnerable to crusting after a rain and hurting emergence. Ones like the furrow cruiser leave "dimples" that don't crust up near as bad and give the crop more locations to punch through.
Wish they would test in true longer term no-till for some of those, that is what separates the different designs.
