I would suggest different holds based upon DUEL, GROUP PVP, and PVE.
You know? Give us a situation you need a hold for.
...for which a hold is needed. tsh. grammar.

I've used Condemn a lot and it's one of my favorite powers. A solid chunk of AoE damage + a strong hold if you fully charge it, and the charge is quick, oh, and it looks cool.
Containment Field is a solid hold, and it looks cool, but it takes a bit of the damage your opponent would be taking by you attacking after you hit them with it.
Crippling Coils is decent and the only other one I've used. It's an instant hold but it doesn't last very long as it has no charge, but you can rank it up to deal some slashing DoT.
Hope this helps. :D

Condemn will feel the wrath of the nerf batton in the near future i feel.....
Good choices would be binding of aratron and Ego hold....
strong purpose built holds that are unlikley to see the nerf bat.
Sonic device can be very useful though and i wouldnt give it a mis esp if ur a pvp toon.
