I agree except for the after-market MII units. They simply don't have the engineering/testing behind them that the MII does. I use the stock MII x-member with stock strut rods and stock strut rod mounts. Have done several and they are still going strong. As most board members know by now, I wouldn't consider anything but a stock MII. I do like the clip approach on the right application ('50s pickups for sure) but they are just too big for pre-war frames.
