I have the Osborne and I like it a lot. It’s a lot beefier than the Incra in the mechanism that sets and holds the angle.
The triangle is SOLID. I’ve never used the Incra, but the stamped steel mechanism didn’t seem as reliable when handling larger pieces compared to the Osborne. The whole Incra thing is that it dials into exact settings. If you are creating a piece from a plan, that sounds great. When you are dealing with real wood, it’s often more important that two angles match than they be exactly 33 1/2 degrees. You can set the Osborne, accurately, to any angle, not just 1/2 degree increments, and it will hold that setting against quite a bit of pressure as you push a larger part through the blade.
