Default Charger Opinions...Pulse or Linear?

I currently have two chargers. One is a CE Pitbull, the other is a Duratrax Digital Pulse. One is a linear charger the other is a pulse charger. Which charger should I be using? I'm probably going to sell both and get an ice charger but for now which is better pulse or linear?

I'm charging GP3300s at 6.0 amps, I also dead short my packs.

you should use a linear charge on ni-mh batteries.... As far as the dead shorting, good luck, I have played around with that and the results were weird.... Gained a little voltage but lost run time, if you look at the dis-charge curve on a graph the extra voltage with less run time didn't really help in the long run.... no extra performance with less cell life...!!
