Which are the best clip-on aero bars?

Hi,
I've ridden a ton of double centuries, but I've never used aero bars. Now I want to try some longer rides, and I want to use a pair of clip-on aerobars. Any thoughts on which are the best and why will be greatly appreciated.

I think if there were a "best" set, there wouldn't need to be so many different ones. I use Syntace C-2 bars. I like them because they are solid, come in different lengths for different arm lengths, have a "bridge" accessory that can join their ends and provide another equipment mount, because the pad mounting width is adjustable, and most of all, because their forearm pads are behind the handlebars, which I think gives more stable handling. Their downside is that the pads don't flip up, so you lose some of your bar tops. It's enough room for me, though. I've used the same set for about 10 years with no problems.
