I used HH rated EBC on the last Blade I had and I really liked them, very strong and didn't need to get up to much temperature to work well. I didn't notice any grabbiness or un-nerving sudden bite even when hard on the front brake and they were never anything but controllable. They did however ruin the discs pretty rapidly but I did put a fair few track days on them.

I'm using GG in the Wee at the moment and I can honestly say that for everyday riding they are fine. Better in the wet than the HH's but not as strong in the dry. Work well from the start of a ride, even in the cold, with good feel and are nicely progressive. When these ones wear through I'll replace with the same. I feel that these work best for me on the road.

I've used the cheaper Chinese stuff from Amazon and Ebay on a bike when I needed to save money and was not impressed. No feel and lacked initial bite. Felt like the brakes needed bleeding. You really do get what you pay for.

The more you think the less the better.
