I was a strong advocate of the Jordon for a long time and still feel it is an outstanding brake controller. However, I think with BrakeSmart the brake controllers have pretty much maxed out their performance. The area for more improvement seems to be in the trailer brakes themselves.
BrakeSmart is a little costly. I still have my Jordan and plan to keep it. If I ever upgrade, it will be to BrakeSmart.
For simplicity, I dont think you can go wrong with Prodigy. Jordan takes a little more to install, but worth it if you want a great controller.
For lighter loads and if you dont plan to make this your final brake controller/tow vehicle, Id go with Prodigy. I wouldnt consider anything else at this time.
