Default Best throttle return spring?

Alright well I have a Losi return spring on my JP OS VZB 21 right now with a JR servo and its not returning. Are there any tricks I can do? If I were to get a new spring, what brands are the best (or are they all the same...)

what's the best way to attach a throttle spring for a slide carb? There doesn't seem to be a good way to do it on my Omega .21.

or replace the setscrew from the ball end and use a screw and loop around that.

I ended up cutting the old spring nearly in half and using needlenose pliers to bend a new hook. Works like a charm, thx for the ideas!
