I voted for Attack, though I mainly use Evans. I just bought attack heads for my kick and I'm happy with their sound :)
But to be honest I use many configurations of heads, coatings etc. It all depends on the situation, sizes and the sound you want to get out of the set.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)

I like Evans G2 for my Tomms and Aquarian II for my Bass Drum heads, Personally I like Remo's for my Snare but I'll use an Evans.

lol, my heads are all mixed up.. lol.

Snare: Evans Genera Hd Dry
Toms: Evans Black Hydraulics
Kick: Believe it or not, my stock Ayotte head. I have a tiny kick drum, but fuck it's got a punch! I've had people offer me $2000 cold hard cash for my kick drum alone.

The only time I've contemplated straying from Evans is when I heard my buddy's Emperor X. I have to admit, they do sound superb.

I only have one favourite head - Remo Wheatherking Coated on the snare... as for the rest I'm still trying new things :)
