Muscle brake vs Painkiller brake

Hi everyone, I am in the process of building a 338EDGE and have decided on one of these two brakes. To me they look very similar and I am not sure what the differences are if there are any. Has anyone compared the two with a caliber similar to the EDGE. Any advice and input would be great!

    I don't have a Muscle brake for actual comparison though I do have a PK on a 375 Allen Magnum.

    The PK is super effective compared to results of the Holland QD on my 338 RUM.

    I think highly of Jim See's Muscle brake and will have one on my next build.

    I think the decision will come down to cosmetics as I don't think the two brakes are all that similar. Jim as an innovation in his that allow it to be a bit smaller, I think.

    I like the big slab of the PK for macho on the 375 AM. But it does add a bit of weight.

    Recoil wise I doubt there is much if any noticeable difference.

    I don't have a Painkiller, but I have 3 Musclebrakes on Edge rifles. They are pleasant to shoot and you don't get the blast in the face like many other brakes.

    I have both they are both great! I like the looks of Kirbys brake more.
