Which valve is best

<b>I have designed a system for my farm and need to use 1 1/2 inch valves.

There are several on the site to pick from. Is one better than the others? </b>

I have a simple design of 1 1/2" PVC main line with four zones of 1 1/4 PVC pipe servicing 4 hunter pgp sprinkler heads on each lateral line. The main line drops 15 feet from the tank house.

The system is river run FW 1 1/2 horse, 27 gallon per minute submersible pump with a total rise from the river of of 66 feet and run length of 500 feet to the 119 gal wel-x tank. The system splits for the house and yard at this point and the 1 1/2 line starts.
