Topic - What rubber do you wear and why?

Fluvial - on 12 May 2012
I was looking at climbing shoes on the web and got to thinking which is actually the best rubber as there are some very different ones available

From my own experience I have used the Vibram of Scarpa which I didn't get on with felt it didn't suit my technically rubbish climbing style (ha)
I then went with Evolv and found them to be 'stickier' the zenith of all the rubbers seem to be the stealth rubber of Five ten but is it all horses for courses.
Obviously the set up of the shoe, technical level, whether its build specifically for slabs, smearing, steep etc however each brand has a competitor for each level so I want to know what people consider the best rubber (Regardlessn of the shoe) and why.

These are some for consideration:
Scarpas/ Eldrid/ La Sportiva Vibram XS
Five Tens Stealth/ Onyx
Evolv Trax
Boreal Zenith Rubber
Red Chili F1 rubber
