Best master slave combo brand?

So it's time for me to replace my master slave combo. I have to constantly bleed it almost once a month and it still doesn't feel right. I've called around and gotten quotes from different places and have gotten many different brand options. I've also searched online for reviews and find it hard to find anything on which people prefer. If you have any experience with any of these brands, some feedback would be nice. It's for a 99 TJ clutch with the ax-15.

Brands:
OEM- priciest and what u have right now that's broken.
Spicer - Napa auto parts
Duralast - Autozone
Luk global - advanced Auto
Crown automotive - local shop/quadratec
Power Torque - O'reilly

Thanks

OEM, or find who makes it and buy that brand from the parts store.

If I were more cautious about it (I'm not, usually just buy from NAPA or O'Reilly's, whichever is in stock), I'd read reviews on-line rather than ask for more reviews here.

I tried but I found almost no reviews for any of them. :/

When you are bleeding these brakes do you get air out of them?

Before I replace them I would have someone start the TJ and then hit the brakes while you inspect each rubber 'whip' that connects each wheel to the steel brake line. They can go soft and swell under pressure causing spongy brakes. The hotter they get the 'spongier' they'll feel.
