Default best dry flow air filter?

Hello,
I decided to ditch my oiled cotton air filter, and I have been comparing the dryflow air filters that are available on the market. Aem, afe, and Amsoil all seem to be popular, which brand do you think filters the best? And I also noticed that s&b makes a paper conical style filter, any thoughts there?

R2C Black Hex... they say it flows like 6 times what a K&N filter does per sq inch.

I don't know any flow numbers but of the paper filters on the market, Wix has a higher pleat count which means more square inches of filter area.

Top is Wix.

Thanks guys, I ended up ordering an AEM dryflow, 21-210EDK. I would have prefered a paper filter like the one above. But becuase I did an engine swap into an older monte carlo, I was sort of forced into a conical style of filter. And out of all of the conical filters, this aem dryflow fit my application the best. Hopefully it filters better than my old spectre oiled air filter.
