What kind of protective horse boots/wraps do you like?

What kind of protective horse boots do you like?
I'm talking just plain splint boots, sports medicine boots, the older wrapping method, the list goes on!
Do you use Bell boots? Front wraps/boots, Or wrap all around?
....I want to know; what do you prefer?

I'm in the market for new protective boots or wraps. So advice would be appreciated.
I do flat work (Western Pleasure or Hunter Under Saddle as a 'goal'). I don't jump at all and I think my horse would tangle in his long legs and hurt himself if I asked for a true sliding stop or spin.

When I do use boots, they're just the standard SMBII. I may be in the minority here, but I only use boots about half the time. Depending in the footing or what I'm working on I will leave them naked. I think not using them at times gives the muscle/tendons a chance to develop w/o support, so when I'm somewhere I CAN'T have them (shows) they aren't as prone to injury from stuff not being strong enough.

The ONLY thing I will use polo wraps for is over quilting as shipping boots. To me, they just don't offer the right protection & support when I do use boots.
