Default lookin for a new practice pad

well i need a new practice pad. i looking for a gum rubber one, my old one had a head on it, and its far past being worn out. I was looking at a couple of them, specifically a vic firth, a cannon gladstone, and a regal tip one. My budget would preferably be under $20. any suggestions, or has anyone tried/owned these pads.
Thanks

Do you have a preferable size?

I got my HQ Real Feel 12" for 32$ shipped to my door

I just picked up the new 'Tru-Bounce' pad from Aquarian a few weeks ago. It's by far my favorite pad that I have used. It has a pretty realistic rebound to it. I've also used the VF gum rubber pad (a little too bouncy for my taste) as well as the Remo pads with the 'heads' on them. However, the Aquarian pad was around $35 but they have a new 6" version that may be within your budget.
