I bought a Breville a couple weeks ago and must say I'm disapointed. Pulp is wet and not a lot of juice

There's no perfect juicer and it's usually a trade off between easy of use/cleaning and speed vs. the absolute best juice yield/quality. Also, some can do wheatgrass and leafty greens, while others can't.
I use the Green Star GS2000, which can juice any type of fruit and I've just used it for the first time with wheatgrass and it seems to work well for that too. I reasearched every juicer going and on balance this seemed to be the daddy. However, it take a little more setting up and cleaning. It's not very fast but better than the painfully slow but relatively cheap single auger machines like the Samson. A friend has a Samson and juice yield and quality isn't far off the Green Star for loads less dosh - but you have to wait.
The Champion, meanwhile, is uber-speedy although I don't think the juice quality, while better than the cheap centrifugals, is as good as any of the slow masticating juicers. It can sometimes leave the juice a little warm. It also can't do wheatgrass. Still if, you're juicing loads of fruit and veg for a whole family, the speed could be a factor for you.
Do you need a juicer at all?
I use mine very often but certain things I'll always Vitamix - melons, apples, grapes, cucumber - anything with a lot of water content that isn't too stringy.
The Greenstar makes a lot of green juices - which are easier to guzzle than green smoothies, which I also enjoy. It also makes juices for recipes. I think you get a better overall yield than the blender+strainer technique but that can work well too.
Overall - a Vitamix should come first as you equip a raw kitchen as it's just massively useful.

Just got a Greenstar. Took a bit to get the knack of using/cleaning it. The trick I discovered is to put in small veggies. I was trying to overload it too much because I was using a cheap centrifuge type juicer before that plowed through every thing in seconds. The good thing is that I get far more juice with the Greenstar. I hear that it will make nut butter easily, I have yet to try.

I have a Breville and I love it. I use it daily to make my green juice. It may not get every last drop out of every veggie but it more than makes up for it by being fast and easy to clean.
