Default Spark Plug Wires - MSD, Taylor, Multi Fire... which ones are best?

Lots of trash talk out there about the MSD boxes, and seems rightly so, I just had to replace one... and am swapping out distributors as well...
so that leads me to spark plug wires, they are several years old and need to be changed anyway... should I stay away from MSD wires?
I hear good things about Taylor and Multi Fire... just curious what others are using and really like.

I just put a new set of MSD on my boat, Went to check plugs after a weekend of boating and could not take the boots off. They had melted onto the spark plug for some reason. I am done with them. These are what I use now.

The question is almost like which oil is the best. Well its somewhat app specific.

Overall for SP wires I think Firecore. Make sure they are for the (exact correct ) app you are installing them on.

Didn't Smitty do a few dyno pulls using different sets of wires while he was chasing his MEFI problems? Some ohm'd out good, bad and indifferent and it seemed to not have any affect on the HP numbers.

For me, the Taylor wires stayed on the plugs much better than the MSD, I like the Moroso Ultra 40 better yet.
