Have used both extensively. If you were new to both I’d have recommended the zigzag as it’s super easy to use whereas the spider jack  has a bit of an all or nothing feel to it which takes time to master. Having used both I still prefer the zigzag though

That’s funny, I used the spiderjack for years then tried the zig zag. Thought the zz was really on/off and jerky. 
I don’t use either nowadays, but the spiderjack is a better built, more predictable piece of kit in my opinion. You can also replace every part of it.
