Joe rocket makes the most visually appealing tailbag IMO. It doesn't look like a cloth wrapped cinder block.

Do magnetic tank bags scratch paint?

I have a magnetic pad that is wraped in soft fabric. No scratching.

I recommend the Kriega Drypack systems. You can mix and match sizes. I've got the US-30 and it works really well. Easy to attach and pull off. When it's off, you only have 4 nylon loops that are exposed and they're barely noticeable.

Kriega first, Cortech/Nelson Rigg/Joe Rocket after.

I have a Kriega R25 backpack that I love and I use the Cortech 3 piece tail / saddle bag combo for trips. They both perform amazing and make a world of difference if you are riding a lot, making a trip, or just if you like to have extra things with you.

I have the cortech combo also. Is the kriega tailbag superior? Do you have the new or old cortech tailbag. Old one has bungees and is a pain so I planned to upgrade for when I just use the tailbag.

I don't have the Kriega tail bag, but I own a backpack from them. I'm judging on the quality of the backpack and that is superior to my old cortech tail bag system with the bungees. The problem with the bungess is that it may damage fairings unless you maybe stick down clear tape, or wrap them somehow at their contact points. Besides that one issue, I have no complaints about them. I wasn't too sure for a while the huge tail bag could stay on by itself without the weight of the side bags, but it did quite well up to speed and felt very stable. The thing about luggage is you NEVER want to lose it on the highway.

The Kriega R25 backpack is just very well made, so I'm guessing that their luggage system with the tailbags is likely better too. I've been using it over 2 years with zero issues. I picked up the Cortech set because I found a local good deal on it, and I've used it for three trips. Tank bags are nice too, but I have a plastic cover so a magnetic option wouldn't work unless I customized it. Hope this helps.
