Cultivator shanks, which to buy?

I have an older Simplicity one piece v-type cultivator and was going to replace the shanks. It seems there are many types available at a low price. I've narrowed it down to chisels similar to original, or a combinantion of 4 seeps and two half sweeps in the middle. Do the sweeps work better than chisels. The new chisels I found are much heavier than the originals but aren't as sharp. I'm leaning towards sweeps. Cost isn't a factor as the chisels are only about 1.50 or less each and the sweeps are something like 2.00 ea.

Thanks. Chris

If your wantting to break up packed groung I'd say the get the chisels, If your gonna kill weeds in the garden go for the sweeps as they will slice the weeds off better.
