I voted "Depends on the Project." If I have to cast on a lot of stitches, then I do the cable cast on (cause I hate running out of yarn before I have all my stitches cast on!) If it's a small amount, I go for the long tail.

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.

I voted "Depends on the project" too. Normall I use the long tail CO but if I have LOTS of stitches I'll switch to the knit CO. Just did the i-cord CO (for the first time) on for a pattern and didn't really enjoy the casting on, but do like the end result.
