Shingle Manufacturer Selection

I am full of questions and I look forward to hearing some feedback through this forum. It seems there are some very capable people here.

I am interested to see if anyone has done their own testing on different shingle manufacturing products, or if someone knows where to source test results.

I am specifically interested in test results for the following:
GAF Timberline
ELK Comparable
IKO Comparable
BP Comparable

We currently use the GAF product and are looking to introduce some other products into our offering.

Can I solicit some info from someone?
