First, as stated there are not that many speakers with true RAAL tweeter. Second, there are several tweeters that are similar, but not true Ribbon tweeter. AMT tweeters, Leaf tweeters, etc...
I have only heard the Philharmonic RAAL Ribbon tweeters (Phil Slims, which my brother owns and Phil-BMR, which I own) and they are excellent. Absolutely crystal clear detail and Clarity, so that you can hear individual strokes of instruments, etc and yet, not one bit bright! I am not sure what the OP means by "presence", but my RAAL is there and speakinng too me, and with a clarity that I have never heard from any other tweeter.
