 bass clarinet comparisons

I played bass clarinet for the first time yesterday, and loved it (I've played Bb for several years)! I have an opportunity to start playing in a local amateur orchestra starting in September, but I don't have a bass of my own. The only rental instruments available in my area are student model Yamahas (220) and Selmers. I will keep my eyes open for used instuments, but can't afford a pro horn anytime soon. I know there's an ongoing Yamaha/ Selmer debate over the pro instruments, but how do the student models compare? I can't tell from the manufacturer websites which have the double register key - any ideas? I also noticed all the Buffet basses have undercut tone holes, but none of the Yamahas do. Any tips or suggestions?
