Screw in Studs / Guideplate Preference

Any of you have any preference on any particular brand of guide plates and screw in studs? Not certain if there are any particular brands to stay away from. Thanks.

I use ARP studs and never had any to break. Any guide plates are good. I like the step up guide plates the best.
