Need help selecting a strop


I've been using a straight almost a year, and the more I use it, the less I'm using a DE. In short, I'm getting proficient.

I've been using a cheap starter strop I was given with my first straight. its inexpensive leather alongside a denim strop.

I believe it is time to upgrade. I need some help and I don't want to spend over $50. What do you recommend for a good strop at that price that will last.

Also, here's been my stropping method. I've recently forgone any stropping on the canvas, and I start my shave with about 30 passes on the strop (a pass is one back and forth pass).
