Default [Q] Best Theme Launcher

Currently only running a rooted device. I have the ICS Theme from the Android Market and have GO Launcher to use it. However I am experiencing a bit of lag and was therefore was thinking of another launcher?

Heard of a few but in peoples opinions which is the best?
want to save as much battery as possible

ADW launcher (the default Cyanogen launcher) has a lot of themes and there are launchers you can get that try to fully implement the ICS features in gingerbread, Phoenix launcher for example.

But it's getting to the point where you can safely take the plunge to unlock your bootloader and put on one of the 4.0 ROMs. I've been using MiniCMSandwich for a while and it seems it is even better (in terms of battery etc.) than Xperia gingerbread once it settles down.

Then try the modified launcher without corners. It also has a 4*4 grid.
Looks like this.
