Cerakote or Parkerize?

Which is better? I am debating about what finish to put on my new build. I am going with a laminate and I think either will look good. I have one rifle with a stainless tube and a black cerakote action and the cerakote has held up well but I have never seen a parkerized rifle in person. Are there any advantages for one over the other? Thanks for any replies. You all have been great in answering my questions.

cerakote is definetly more weather resistant.
