Looking For The Holy Grail Of EP's

I just finished a 6" f/6.78 dob that has good/super contrast images with some of my odd ball collection of ep's:
Edmund 28mm RKE, Celestron 25mm Ortho,Univ.Optics 20mm Kelner, EDSCORP 12.5mm Ortho,Celestron 10mm Plossl, and a 2x Meade Barlow.

I want to now "invest" in some ep's that will really help me develop my enjoyment of the quality of my new scope and save my old ep's for public night.

What is the Holy Grail of ep's. Locally I can only borrow Meade, Celestron, and Orion and maybe Telvue EP's for comparison. What about the Brandon's, Pentax, Clave, Takahashi, Zeiss, and the other exotics. I guess it would be nice to have a set of "unique" brand ep's to share with the group.

Since I am a married with two I will be most likely purching one at a time.
