Question Is blackgate really that good?

Despite the fame and terrific price of blackgate, is it really the best electrolytic cap in the world? or just the best for the size?? If available, will blackgate outperform PP or MKT caps of the same value, say 330uf? Isn't it true that even a normal film cap is better than all electrolytic caps?

BG is probably one of the best electrolytic cap, but its not the king of all caps. It is subjective depending on application. Please search the forum next time before posting.
