Rudy,My choice would be the DaVinci 293 (have it...) or a Zenith Copper Manchurian. Best grade from Simpson can be hit and miss, better go with their Manchurian (excellent quality hair) or a Super.
Our Best has never been more consistent. We’ve been monitoring batches for several months & are pleased to say it’s exceptional.
Thought it fair to comment given your past experience.
