You always come up with a bunch of good stuff Bluebee but there is measurable and meaningful differences in rotors... but, that is another thread! And yep, lots of marketing B.S.! Familiar with edge codes and you are correct, they only tell part of the story. When designing systems if the pad manufacturer would not supply at the very least the cf/temp graphs I wouldn't touch them. Kind of funny, the pic you posted is what I use!
I think the OP has their answer here. The ATE, Brembo, Zimmerman along with the Axxis/PBR combo is a good one. Probably the ULT's based on the info you obtained from Axxis.
