post master vs. round vs pt fence posts

I've talked to 2 fence contractors.

#1. Swears by post master, best thing since sliced bread. If not post master then round posts.

#2. Says that post masters can go wonky if they're not installed correctly. He said he's also seen the holes in the dog ears wear through because of the screws in the stringers. He swears by plain old pressure treated.

Any consensus from the group? Our soil is a clay loam i.e. not real loamy but has some clay mixed in it.
Thanks

Any fence post not installed properly will go wonky. That statement means nothing. Nothing wrong with PT wood provided it's properly dried before installing. What kind of wood will be used by either fence installer? If plain pine then it must be PT. Don't understand statement about dog eared fence.
Why not try getting a third quote from another fence company?
