Default FlexTT5 and miniTT1 RF issues

Hello all!
I'm looking to branch out into the wonderfull world of off camera flash, been doing quite a lot of research and was set to buy the PW set up, but have been reading a lot from folks who've had burnt out 580exii's (of which I've aquired 2) and also a rf issue where sometimes it misses shots altogether.
My question is, I'm in the UK, so does the different EU frequency (as opposed to the US) alleviate the problem? love to hear from any UK users of that set up.
I've also come across an alternative, the Phottix Odin, whixh apparently doesn't suffer from any of the above problems is perhaps more intuitive to use but may not quite have some of the features of the pocket wizard system, any input would be much appreciated.
By the way, I'll be using them on a 5Dmkii
Regards
Burnso...

Well i went with the Odin's, very good at what they do, only downside for me is not being able to remotely fire, for taking readings in a studio type set up, fortunately my sekonic 358 ignores the preflash which is a bonus, but for ETTL the Odin is awsome!!
