There is no kit that is BEST for cDNA cloning. As far as I could tell
from the experiences of a number of my colleagues, the success of the
kits depend on the system on which they are used. For example, one of my
friends could never get a perticular kit to work on the poly(A+) of an
ascomycete, while another used the same kit and constructed a good
library from Brassica napus flowers. A better result was obtained by this
same friend when he used a kit from another supplier (I think it was
Amersham; usual disclaimer). I have never used a kit just for the fear of
not being able to get the proper library.
