Lunette or Lady Cup?

I have a smaller diva right now. We have this love hate relationship with each other. I never really got putting it in and popping it open down. I've tried widening the holes, putting it inside out, and some other things. All to no avail. So I've been doing my research on the different cups and I've got it narrowed down to two. The Lunette and the Lady Cup. My flow is pretty normal so I don't need a cup with a big capacity. I don't really know what to look for in a cup other than the size though, so I've just been thinking in generalizations. Hoping to find one that opens easily, but since the Diva seems (from what I've read) to be one of the toughest ones to master, I think any other cup would be better.

So onto little things about each cup... I love the simplicity of the lady cup. It doesn't have a lot of ridges, and I read that the silicone is soft and very flexible, but it still opens relatively easy. I also like that it seems to be easy to fold and keep folded. I tend to have problems keeping the diva folded as I go to insert it. And I read that the cleaning was easy. Oh, and when I looked on their website I saw they were going to have blue cups... which looks really nice.
The Lunette I like simply because most people that I've noticed who have them seem to be totally happy with it and have hardly any problems. I hear a lot of positive things about it which would help lessen any nervousness I might have with it. It also has smooth sides on it with no major ridges. I'm not sure on how it pops open and such, but I'm sure it would be better than my diva.

So what are everyone elses thoughts and opinions?
