Are Ladders still consistent with their corresponding ratings?

I don't think so, especially now that problems have ratings.

    But in codeforces ratings are not always correct. So I am looking for handpicked problemset.

They are a great way to practice. If you open problems from the rating ladders especially the ones in the latter half of a ladder, you'll find that according to codeforces difficulty rating system most of them (almost all) have a rating that's above the rating level specified for the ladders. This means that they can be used to practice on harder problems that are above the level of one's current rating.
