I just bought Superpro this very week, but they did not arrive as promised so I can't tell you what they are like but my research tells me they are softer than Nolathane and harder than rubber.
Its a bit like the K&N air filter argument though, you are replacing an old part with a new so unless someone is doing a back to back then its difficult to say which is better. They are two piece so installation is easier than standard bushes.

nolathane is all i hear from the suspension specialists in penrith or whiteline as well.

Basically the harder the bush the longer it will take to wear out but the stiffer it will make your suspension.

i'd say nolathane myself i put some in the rear of my old EA (upper and lower) and it drove perfectly but was alot more stable but i was replacing f***ed one's with new so yeah

I've got alot of superpro in my EB. Good to work with, as mentioned it is 2 piece instead of one. The car handles well too.

Apparently superpro have a consistant mix and manufacturing process which has made them a better bush than nolathane becuz apparently they have had mix and manufactoring issues in the past.

2 big suspension places i know use superpro bushes for above reasons.
