Redline or Genuine Honda ATF

Ok well which is better? I did a flush with honda recently and my tranny feels better.. but will redline do even better? why im askin is because my tranny i wouldnt say is messed up, but lets just say its not perfect either. I need the best possible ATF i can get.. so which is it redline or honda, or other? thanks

if it don't say Honda on it don't use it. i mean oil is oil but tranny fluid is different.

If you are under warranty, use Honda and keep all your receipts. If you are way out of warranty, use whatever you think is best. Redline may well be better, I don't know. If the tranny goes, you have to pay for it anyway. But as long as you have any warranty, stick to honda so they have a harder time trying to void your warranty. Simple as that.
On this note, I make sure my mom takes her car to honda every 20k for a tranny flush while under warranty. Keeping all records so when the tranny dies, we can prove that the car was well maintained by THEM, and ahead of shedule. Just waiting....
