Snare is such a personal taste thing. Even when you can try them out, different tuning and reso heads make such a huge difference. What kinda sound are you looking for? For example when I think of the perfect snare I have that dry woody deep knock sound from Isis Oceanic album in my head and if I were to buy a Snare I would use that as a reference.

A supraphonic or acrolite are great and will do the job. My favorite in that genre have always been my '66 Acrolite
