Inflatable man overboard pole comparisons

I am trying to determine which of the three is the best Inflatable Man Overboard device:

The Switlik MOM8
Plastimo Dan Buoy
SOS Dan Buoy

I understand the Switlik is about twice the price of both Dan Buoys and costs about $300 to recharge once a year. Whereas the Plastimo and SOS Dan Buoy's have recharge kits for under $100. Does the quality of the Switlik merit its cost?

Other suggestions and feedback would be appreciated

Best regard,
