Prong Collar Vs Gentle Leader

We're looking for a new prong collar for Cadie that doesn't make her neck ugly (the one we have now must be covered in something that's rubbing off on her). 

I'm thinking of a Herm Sprenger Prong Collar with Quick Release, size Medium.

I posted something on a labs forum and got shot down about how horrible prong collars are (I don't necessarily agree, but figured I'd look into their suggestions) - a lot of people recommended a gentle leader. 

Cadie's really good at walking now (with her prong collar) - no pulling, good with kids around, much calmer.  And I definitely need to have control over her when the baby comes and I have a stroller and a dog to walk. 


PS Quick release or just the 'normal' connection for the prong collar?
