Default STAM or PA Next?

Just passed LTAM and I'm wondering, for those that have taken the PA or STAM exams, what would be the best option next? Is there any correlation between STAM and LTAM that would make me keeping chugging along? I feel like I need a break from the standard MC question studying.

I can't speak to the new material on STAM as I took it during the good ol' C days. That said, there was enough of an overlap between C and LTAM material that it provided some efficiency for me while studying.

Also, PA still seems to be an exam that is being developed in a lot of ways. I'm sure that the December sitting will be better than the previous two but I want to see the SOA get it right with administering PA.

I would certainly do STAM. PA is still a relatively new exam and I heard the first sitting was a disaster. Even though STAM is new as well, I'm sure the SOA recycles questions from Exam C on the test.

I am taking PA with the hope that STAM will have instant results by the June sitting
