Best font manager for El Capitan?

I've always liked Linotype FontExplorer, but I'm not sure it's still the best choice when using El Cap. Or maybe I need a newer version, which probably isn't free.

I'm a fairly typical graphic designer. I have about 150 typeface families on my computer, with about 50 that I keep open and available. Clients sometimes send me fonts to use for a particular project. No non-Latin stuff. But I do still use a bunch of 1990s PostScript Type 1 fonts.

With so few fonts, I would just say fontbook.

I use Suitcase, have for as long as I can remember... however, I do have a few more fonts than you.

I bought the Adobe Font Folio right after they moved everything to OpenType, plus the Agfa and Bitstream libraries from long ago.

Of course, there are also 50 or so Adobe Typekit I have synched too.

I have both Suitcase and Font Explorer Pro. I prefer Font Explorer.
