All the new pads that work well and mixed cork and rubber combos of sorts and out perform the corks on every level..
Sure they wear a lot quicker but they don't wear the rims.. And cost very little.
If you want some really awesome pads try the red campag pads. I was very surprised by the stopping power it's a lot better than the evne pads I usually use!
Needless to say I like the Reynolds Blue pads.

For us at Campagnolo SC - no Campag pads & a heat or abrasion-damaged brake track = no warranty = expensive!
Different rim manufacturers use different resins in their lay-ups, different formats for the braking surface and what works for one might be a disaster for another - *generally speaking* rim manufacturers do want repeat customers and so *will* go looking for the pad that works reliably on their rims without damage, or they will contract a specialist manufacturer to make the pad ...
If your wheels are out of warranty, it may be different - but even then, imagine you try an alternative pad and cook your rims - how pi**ed off are you going to be? Imagine you are on tubs and "do a Beloki" ...
Squeal issues might not only be a function of the pads, it may be brake set-up as well ... we still see lots of badly set-up brakes even from people who should know better

Buy those pads you are allowed to use or the risk is huge you damage your wheels. Use SwissStop on Corima rims and you burn them.
For instance, Mavic CCU allow only the original yellow pads, or SwissStop version pads.
I think it will only end up in regret if you damage a new set of wheels as there is no warranty in the business that covers usage of wrong pads.

I took by Boras out on Sunday with the Campy red carbon specific pads. Excellent stopping power (it was dry) - at least as good as an alu rim with conventional pads.
However, the noise from them was unbelievable. The sort of screech that makes dogs within 100 metres look startled and causes a lot of heads to turn. Directly related to the braking force too.
Think I will check the toe in, but even so I'd be quite surprised if toe in could resolve a noise of that volume.
