Almost all of the PPs I've owned over the years have preferred turbos, especially tapestry and mexican turbos. I've only had a few crabs that would qualify as XL or jumbo, and they eventually switched to jade turbos. I can't really say about E favs. They've all sort of picked random shells when they...

I agree that it depends on the individual crab. I have some that aren't bothered by me in the slightest and others that still tuck in or take off.
I've been using this one for a little over a year with great results. It's very similar to the one CharlesMTF linked but costs a little more. I used to use the other acurite linked but the screen messed up within a couple months, even with trying to be careful about moisture and sand.
