    Hi,

    I'm looking for a new case for my iPod Touch, and I'm stuck between two cases-the Switcheasy Rebel and the Speck Candyshell.

    I really like the Rebel because it comes with all of the stuff, and you get two screen protectors that people say are really good, and it looks really cool.

    But I've read that the Candyshell is better, and I love the color. I would just go with the Rebel, but I've always loved the Candyshell, and I'm not sure if it would live up to expectations or whatever.

    Anyway, sorry for the loongg story thing, but when I'm buying something, I really like to look for the best that's out there.

    Go for the slider if you want two lovely big scratches down the back of you iPod.

    None both i've had;

    Rebel = Tough case but also tough to take off, put on

    CandyShell just broke slower apart with 3 months.

    Check some others out i have a stickied thread, theres lots more, these two are kinda overated.

    Do you have any suggestions? Also which of the two do you think is better, and also, when you said your Candyshell broke, did you have the old one?

    EDIT: Would the ******* be a better choice then the Rebel? It seems that people have had tons of problems with the Rebel. If so, would you recommend the ******* or the Candyshell?

    I'm just going to take the ******* out, because it'll just make my decision harder... I'm leaning towards the Rebel, but I feel like I'll still really want the Candyshell, but, I can't get both.

    Is it also true that the black rubber is tighter on the Rebel? Because if it is, I'll get the celestial.
