    valve hammer, sucks, lacks features and pretty old
    sledge is really really bad, when you compile the map, it ruins it
    jack is perfect.

    Since VHE is really buggy on my PC (when I click on a brush, it select the one behind, or sometimes it don't do nothing), I moved to Sledge.

    But I've got some problems with textures when I compile with Sledge, so I use J.A.C.K to compile maps, but Sledge to make them... Yeah that's really convenient...

    Also, like Kay_dee, I feel uncomfortable with J.A.C.K. 
    I think it's "more powerful" than Sledge, but Sledge is simpler to use. But it's just my opinion...
    Sledge doesn't work on my pc IDK why. It crashes every time i think it is problems of framework.

    I'm using Valve Hammer Editor (specially 3.5) for GoldSrc. When i use other editors it's a bit uncomfortable.
    When i started using jack i also feel uncomfortable but after 5 days i feel that it is more usefull than vhe.
