Realistic ssb radio what is the best one made?

My vote would be the TRC 457 and then a TRC-458. The TRC-449 is missing L6. With the original NEC 2SC1307 final. Do the Unit_399 mods, especially the receive FET and Tantalum changes. My best performing CB base is my modded TRC-457 with a DigiScan 400 sitting on top.
I thin the Realistic TRC 453 was a pretty good radio, not a whole lot could be done with them but they were a great sideband radio, it needed some sort of amplified mic to help with the modulation but all in it was a pretty good radio
