Default Exhaust Spring info

What is the consensus on longest lasting exhaust springs that connect the manifold to the pipe? It seems like some lose tension sooner or pop off. I've had bad luck with Novarossi springs doing both. Ninja springs with the shrick wrap looking stuff seems to work well, but are like $11 for 3. Reds is so so. Associated week. Some are also longer or shorter so how do you know?

They never snap and after 1 year you will replace it because they are streched bit.
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.

Our LHS carries the Dynamite pack which comes with the 3 shorties, 1 long and a gasket for like $7. Have not had any problems when I used them but they are for back up purposes only.

But I am absolutely loving the Werks springs. Those are my primary ones. Countless removal and installes and they still sit tight. I use them on the manifold to engine and manifold to pipe. A-Main has them in 3 different sizes I believe.

What's the rule of thumb on how long of a spring to get for the pipe to exhaust manifold connection if there are mulitpe lengths to choose from?
