Yep, own multiples of both. I shoot a poppet more often because of the better efficiency, reliability, and ease of maintenance.
A spool will be smoother(usually), quieter, less barrel rise, less efficient, and require more frequent maintenance. Also, the maintenance is more difficult in that too much or too little lube will DRASTICALLY lower performance. Poppets are almost fool proof by comparison.
If you've never owned a spool before, go with a poppet. It will give you fewer problems.
