Class mod: better rare vs inferior epic

Just curious how many choose an inferior epic class mod for the extra bonuses even if they are not ideal or specific to your build?

I’ve always chosen a mod based on what the skills were, not the number of skills in it…

Exception being legendary, I get +2 for a green tree skill on my Zane because I’ve only ever gotten the one legendary yet. Sorry I can’t do the barrier… Drone and clone for lyyyyfe!
