    Default villeta vs. reliant 3

    Need to pick a faucet for a customer. They like the styling of both Moen Villeta and AS Reliant 3 (7385.000 series). I haven't personally used either.

    Would like some feedback on choosing between these two, particularly on the quality and "feel" of the faucets. What I mean is, most Moen single-handle faucets I've used feel a little sloppy and crude in operation, compared to the silky-smooth operation of a Grohe, for example.

    Would I be correct in assuming the AS is a little more refined feeling? Also, is the cable pop-up on the AS better than a conventional one or doesn't matter?

    Thanks for any input.

    Picking things for a homeowner, you can't go wrong in picking whatever looks higher end.

    They like both equally well, looks-wise. Need feedback on the "quality feel".

    A/S has a ceramic disc. I have serviced two A/S ceramic disc type faucets compared to hundreds of Moens. Granted, there are more Moens installed than A/S in my area, but I think A/S is a better value for the customer.
