UG, what do you think is the best distortion/hi gain pedal?

EDIT: Some of you don't understand what I'm asking. YOU are not asking ME what kind of amp I have/tone I want. I'm asking YOU. I'm asking YOUR personal opinion of whats YOUR favourite distortion/hi gain pedal.

Just to clear things up.

The only I can think of that could compare to it would be the Himmelstrutz Fetto Deluxe

Fender Vintage -57 Ri Stratocaster
Fender Blues JR w/ 12"Cannabis Rex

Wampler Ego Compressor

Guyatone MMX Metal Monster kills everything mentioned so far. Search youtube for a review.

I'm actually not going to be buying a pedal right now, I was just wondering what people on UG think is the best distortion/hi-gain pedal.

I have the Ibanez Tubescreamer TS-808 .. great pedal

BTW, any of you think the EHX Metal Muff is great?

If your gonna get a great high gain dist. pedal its gonna cost you. IMO the metal muff is ok, but i don't like the trebley freqencies from it. And in the long run a new amp might be better.

Metal Muff, fo sho.

Gets nasty (in a good way) without scooping out the mids like the MT-2 and Metal Master do.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
