BH = luffy>zoro>sanji
KH = luffy>sanji>zoro
just because ODA said that zoro was more proficient in BH than other types of haki doesn't mean he has the strongest one amongst the M3, iits just means that his BH is better than his KH/HH.
As for zoro, he wasnt even forced to use his best adamant haki untill now, he just made monet poop her pants with fear, even though shes a strong fighter.
Im personally 99% sure, that also means they are the best at those colors from the monster trio.
As far sanji's haki.
Vergo was unable to land a single hit on sanji, sanji blocked/dodged all of them.
Sadly for sanji one of his legs got damaged due a block.
And for Zoro
In the fishman island arc, im pretty sure the cutting tornado that was following the fishmen, was imbued with haki
By that logic, zoro is also able to pour his haki into objects (swords) and flying attacks
Also, he cut off a giant dragons head http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/656/14
That was supposed to be very tough and hard
Not to mention, even luffy spams gear 2 all the time, and sanji using diable jamble alot also, we havent seen zoro using demonic spirit asura even once yet.
Even though they all very strong now, Luffy greatest strenght isnt his combat ability, its his ability to make people into his allies, a fitting ability for a pirate king.
Thats a ability that neither sanji, or zoro has.
He doesnt need to be the strongest is the world, he needs the abiity to make people follow him, thats why blackbeard isnt the person roger was waiting for.

as for the rest, i really don't know why posted all of that, i obviously know that zoro has haki,
also by ur last line, are u implying that zoro>luffy? because we know that's not true
No, im saying that luffy doesnt need to be the strongest individual in the world to become the PK.
As for luffy and zoro go, luffy = zoro individual combat power wise.
I think it's just a matter of opinion now though. I personally don't see swords as being bad for Luffy. Sure, it can damage him, but so can a lot of other things, other than non-haki induced blunt attacks. Luffy is skilled enough and tough enough to take what is dished out by most swordspeople in my opinion. Depending on Zoro's level of haki mastery, he might be disadvantaged there.
The battle would be tough as hell though, I agree. I actually expect a tie for the most part, though I tend to lean towards Luffy.
It depends on who's fighting him though, if Luffy can get hurt. Zoro can definitely hurt Luffy, while someone like Helmeppo wouldn't be able to do a thing despite being a "swordsman" himself (I'm not sure what the weapons he used against Zoro were, but they're not swords). Mihawk and Zoro are at such high level that Luffy will at best, be very challenged by them. HIs main advantage as far as we (or I) know is speed. I don't remember Zoro showing how fast he is, but if he can't hit Luffy or dodge Luffy's attack, he's in trouble.
Same, even though I'm arguing Luffy might lose. What Luffy has shown up to this point makes me think he has more chances of beating Zoro as they are now.
I'm talking about Helmeppo as we saw him after Enies Lobby. I was just saying that the level of swordsman skill matters. Mihawk could probably beat Luffy, while someone like Zoro would be unknown, while someone like Kaku might lose.
about feats, go explain that to kuma at thriller bark, when zoro took in all of luffy's fatique and damage.
Post ts, zoro didnt have to go all-out or even serious against any of his enemies, while luffy had to use gear second + haki many times already.
In a old sbs , oda already said that zoro = luffy
Databook said that aswell.
I didnt see a reason why this would change
well guess what? luffy uses G2 regularly now, he even used it on fodders, so that isn't helping u one bit, and by zoro not going all-out, same can be said to luffy, he's still showing us new techniques in every fight(last one would be THOR EG against DCJ) and obviously he's gonna show us more and more, same goes for zoro though, but still, for now both feats/portrayal puts luffy ahead of zoro, and until proven otherwise by the manga, it should stay like that.
yup, and i agree, that until around EL arc, where its been stated that luffy is the strongest SH member.
yeah, the same databooks that stated garp<luffy. i believe you now

There's no feat that supports Luffy is superior to Zoro after the time skip. If there is, please provide it. I have one - Zoro was able to take out Hodi pretty quickly, forcing Hodi to use his drug.
We know how Helmeppo looks after the time-skip and he still has the same swords/knifes.
postTS even they both didn't go all-out, luffy still has the better feats, and he's portrayed to be stronger.
oh yes, zoro was able to nearly KO hody in his fodder state, with his strongest ittoryu attack. well guess what! hody was basically eating the ES non stop after that right?! and each pill double's his strength, which means if he ate only 10(which he obviously took way more than) he'd be 100 times stronger, yet luffy was owning him back on land with basic haki punches/kicks. but in the water as u said its all about match-ups, luffy being a DF-user couldn't muster all his power, and when they fought on the falling ship 'noah, luffy literally fodderized him. if anything, their fight aginst hody supports luffy more than zoro.
Did shigan pierce a hole in Luffy? If it did work on Luffy, then he would have been dead in Iceberg's room when Lucci first used shigan on him. Luffy was immune to the stabbing for the most part.
Luffy's feat isn't better than Zoro's. I don't recall a moment where Luffy showed he was superior to Zoro. In fact, Zoro seemed superior when he took out Hodi easily.
It doesn't, given that Luffy still had a problem with Hodi while Zoro didn't. Plus, Luffy had the benefit of the bubble to breathe in while Zoro was basically holding his breath. I need good proof that Luffy is better than Zoro, otherwise this fight is either extremely close or results in a tie.
