Recommendations for new climbing shoes

I just sold a pair of shoes out of my quiver with the intention of trimming down my shoe collection. Unfortunately I have a legitimate problem and feel like I need a new pair to fill the void. The problem is I dont know what to buy, so I was hoping the fine people of MP would be able to enable me in my addiction. I climb a shit load of trad and sport with the bi weekly alpine trip thrown, primarily on granite or gneiss. I already have TC pros, Miura VS, solutions, and moccs. I know this is kind of dumb but I'd appreciate all the suggestions.

Then I shouldn't give you any suggestions as that would be aiding you in failing to achieve your original goal.

Uh, yeah...it looks like you have a pretty good quiver. Why buy shoes just to buy shoes? Is there an area of weakness you've experienced in your quiver?

I guess I'm looking for something slightly more aggressive and sensitive than the tc's but not as aggressive as the miura vs's.

I've worn both the Vs. And love my TCs. I think the Muiras Lace are my favorite shoe and a good in between of those two shoes. Great all around shoe.
