I am really new to routers and I have only used three different bits, So I have found the cheaper bits work well for me. This may change at some point. I think it depends really how much and how often you do this type of woodworking. I have bought only Bosch bits.

Lee Valley and Amana have been good and so has Onsrud.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I am with Ronald, and there are no profile favorites, what ever bit gets the job done.

Go to bits - Whiteside because they perform the best for me. They seem to have more mass than the cheaper bits. For infrequent use MLCS, Eagle, CMT or whatever is on sale.

Whiteside- if I had to pick favorite profile, double round. Used this on my kitchen cabinet doors. Outsides of stiles and rails.
