Cliff by far, not to bring Robert down though cause he really is good, but those shoes can't be filled.

Jason sucked ass in Metallica though, I like him better in Flotsam and Jetsam

Cliff Burton by far. Jason had good stage presence, but wasn't nearly as good as Cliff.

I personally don't think that Cliff was that good. Pulling Teeth is the most boring instrumental i've ever heard. Just sounds like random noodling. He didn't stand out on many other songs either.

The new guy seems pretty good though.

As a bassist i think cliff is way overrated, people practically jerk off to him when you have amazing metal players like John Myung, Alex Webster, and Stefan Fimmers which would crush Burton... And not to mention all the amazing jazz and funk bassists like Wooten and Miller. He was a good bassist no doubt but not the best to ever live which he is hyped up to be. He made Metallica not suck as you can see by the descending quality in there music from each album after Cliff died. I think even Trujillo and Burton are about the same in skill but Trujillo has more diversity and is a terrific slap bassist.
