Best?

Best is relative. How much are you willing to pay? and does it make sense to pay that when the $15 ones will do the job just fine.

I had one of the fancy magnetic ones, but switched to this $4.99 one and like it just the same.

I like the Dubro prop balancer I have. I generally just gently wipe the back of the heavy blade with 80grit sandpaper till I remove enough material for proper balance.

This one was recommended to me by a 40 yr veteran flyer at our local field.

I use a drill bit, as big as I can fit in the hole, and then set 2 glasses next to each other, with the smooth ends of the drill an the lip of the glass and the prop hanging in the middle. Cheap!!

It's too easy to make a prop balancer. But if you are going to get a good one, might as well get a good one.
