Beautiful, accurate plates. Do they exist??

Need your opinions... I keep going in circles!! I currently have Ivanko Revolvers and Rogue Bumpers. The revolvers aren't that accurate and I wanted something more accurate, so I bought the bumpers (+/-10 g). However, even the competition bumpers max out the bar @ 6 bumpers (or 5 and change). So...
