Lol...they all work.

FM is the best in my opinion, but I like what is the cheapest...

Can you even still get the Todas?

I believe the Todas are still in production based on the latest issue of HyperRev Vol 149. I think all these cam gears are very similar so likewise I will go for the cheapest.

Incidentally, I have a pair of Toda cam gears that I bought off MT.net but have yet to install them

Yeah, buying anything else would just be retarded.

CorkSport one seems pretty good deal, is having more bolts the solution of solving the slipping problem?

from look wise point of view, I think Boundary Engineering one looks the best. But it seems too new to the market, to have some feed back from the users...

They don't have a slipping problem if torqued correctly.
