AKA is the firmest, although they have new foam coming out the is better than their current foam. Proline blue closed cell foam is a bit softer then the AKA and I believe that the EVO insert is lighter than the blue foam, but I'm not sure on how stiff the foam is.

PL Evo Black is favored on outdoor tracks that aren't super rough.

AKA is still the firmest.

JConcepts is pretty similar to the PL Evo black and is probably the softest of the group.

I really wouldn't bother with the PL Blue except for indoor/smooth tracks. It compacts tightly pretty quickly, doesn't have a lot of range to compress it.

When is the new foam supposed to be out?
