Gel with Jessicurl?

For those of you who use a gel with RR and CCSS, which gel do you prefer? Do you use it over RR and under CCSS, or over both?

I'm revisiting Jessicurl products, and, while I'm loving the softness and definition, I think I need a little more hold.

TIA!
I've used LA Looks and Biotera Gel over both RR and CCSS. I think the Biotera keeps my curls defined, and less crunchy than the LA looks does. Probably because it's easier to distribute through my hair.
3a locks!
Daily Products!: Suave Naturals Coconut, Jessicurl WDT, MOP-C, Biotera Curl Creme, & LA Looks Sports Gel!
^^^Proof that you can be CG without spending tons of money! =) ^^^

CG since April 5th, 2008!

I think you could walk around with words and stick people drawn on your face and still look supercute.
I've used the Aveda Flax Seed and Aloe Gel over both RR and CC. I've also used it over just the RR and left off the CC. I had pretty good results with both those.

Thanks for all of the responses, Ladies. Going to try to get out today to get some products with which to experiment.
I don't like Confident Coils that much. However, I have used Rockin' Ringlets with got2b spiked up gel with great curly results. I had to use a leave-in (some Too Shea!) to prevent dryness and a diffuser for volume and holding the curl.
2a/M-C/ii hair. Super long.
