Does anyone have thoughts (i.e. recommendations) on whos reducers they feel are execptional optically?

I'm only interested in the 1.25" adapter type that screw into bottom of the eyepiece. Or if there are any that are like a barlow where you just pop the eyepiece into the assembly. I use a Newt exclusively.

I have an ancient Celestron one from back in the 80's that does ok. Anyway, please let me know if you have any recommendations.

btw - to anticipate an oncoming question of why in the world would I use these if I have a fast Newt? ...because I enjoy finding a single eyepiece that performs outstandingly, then just barlow it up or down for my EFL needs in viewing.
