Shimano chainrings will obviously still shift the best because they are so ridiculously stiff.
Much stiffer than the CarbonTi chainrings?
I don't think so...

Probably not much, but nothing beats the stiffness of shimano chainrings

I have Absolute Black at the moment and they are stiffer than Shimano ones.

Absolute Black, are offset outwards at least 1mm, and they change the chainline.

Do you want a standard round chain ring or do you want an oval chain ring? The latter narrowed down your selection significantly.
