I must admit, I do like the yates adjustables. I went this weekend for the first in a number of years to do some really basic aid, and I was having a tough time getting my top step setup working with them. I switched back to my old system of daisies and a fifi hook and viola! No problems. I think I just need to dick with them some more. They do have their advantages.
Aid is so methodical I can imagine that switching would come with costs, but since I'm just starting out it's been an easy choice for me.
The thing that really sold me on them is that they can be extended longer than my arms can reach, so I never get "short roped" reaching for a high placement, and when it's clipped to my harness, I can keep the loop above my knee so it doesn't catch on my lower leg or foot like a regular daisy.
