Default Recommended hood struts?

I know my front hood struts need replacing. Any recommendations between the 4 or 5 major easy to source ones?

Sachs, Stablis, RhinoPac, StrongArm, TuFF, ............

Are they all the same? I see lots of different part numbers. Recommendations please.

AKA 968 Virgin

I'm using Boxi struts from Amazon. I paid $18 for a pair but right now they are $10.

I’ve bought Stabilus struts for a couple of Porsches. Probably bought through Pelican Parts, possibly Amazon.
