If weight is not an issue:

The original is still the best for me: Monocote. You have to use high heat to get the proper adhesion and stretching. every iron I've owned ended up all the way up.
ultra cote is a close second. The only real complaint I have about it is the color selection.
All of the rest I've tried were low heat that would stick to it's self if the adhesive side touched and pull the color coat off. The line between shrinking and burning was so fine the possibility of burning through while ironing a compound curve was likely.
And finally look at what the best builder in the hobby use, electric and otherwise. Most use monocote or ultracote.

If you want light weight with extreme strength(and hassles) try micafilm. A pain to apply but almost bullet proof.
