Default E-Collars: Tone vs Vibrate/Tap?

I'm trying to sort out what kind of e-collar for my GSD. Training goals are not well-defined yet, but will involve off-lead scent and search type things both indoors and outdoors, also some cat/chicken/etc. compatibility training.

I've been looking at E-Collar Technologies' assortment (link), getting confused. I have no exposure to e-collars.

Aside from range and lights, the big differences seem to be in either a tapping mode or a tone. They all have 100 levels of continuous or momentary stim.

Why would tone or tap be better for a particular application?
