Best apple for pie?

Now that fall has officially arrived, so too has apple pie season. I, for one, am totally excited about this, and my guess is that many of you are too. With that in mind, what brand of apples do you feel is the best for pie? I've tried various kinds over the years (some with better luck than others), but I'm on the hunt for which one is perfect. Do you use only one kind, or do you mix several? I've got a recipe I generally use, so now I just want the perfect apple to complete it.
