Which Proportioning Valve is best?

I've done a bunch of research, and the jury seems to be 50/50. Which brake proportioning valve seems to work best with a power brake kit? I've heard that Wilwood is the way to go, any ideas?

Honestly, I thought Willwood was the only readily available one out there....

I think they are all the same, just different colors, engravings, and prices. I have a Summit prop valve which it even says Wilwood right on the knob, but it was 1/2 the price of the Wilwood one.

I have heard that 50/50 is good if you have the same type of brakes front and rear. If you have disc fronts and drum rears, shouldn't you use a different ratio?
