It also matters what your used to. I play a piston tuba and I find that my articulation sucks when I play a rotary horn. I know cats that play only rotors and can't get pistons not to stick. However, I think if I had to I could figure out rotor horns. I think you should definatley try both and decide what feels better.

Also it is important to note that Pistons take some wearing in time (which may actually be you adjusting to them). However, it's way easier to take care of Pistons. For me, rotary hors are just too hard to take apart and clean.
