Default What variety to plant this spring?

Well last year I had great results with the Jet Star & Big Boy in my 7gal. Walmart bags. So I'm mulling over if I should try a new plant variety this year. Don't get me wrong the yield was great and they needed little attention from me other than normal trimming of suckers and such. So if I decide to try another variety what do the experts of container growing recommend, for my area Zone 5A, keep in I want a large slicing tomato... Thanks!

I grew some Big Beef last year and was very happy with the results. Lots of early(73 days) large well shaped fruit and had an excellent flavor. Seemed very disease resistant as well.
