Our company sells both anti-HA antibodies and the FLAG antibodies. My
sense from our cutomers is that the HA antibody is more generally
useful and a better precipitator than the FLAG antibodies. People do
have successes with either one, of course, but if I were "starting from
scratch", I'd use the HA tag.
Any more questions, please contact me directly.
