Any good quality needle is fine. All of the names you mentioned are fine. (BTW, Groz Beckert is the name you're looking for.) I usually use size 21 needles. Your problem might be your thread is too small. I use size 92, size 138, size 207 and size 270 polyester thread. To sew with size 207 and size 270 you would need a size 24 needle.
