Default 2nd gen door hinges

What's the consensus on 2nd gen hinges as far as buying reproductions or buying Ring Brothers? Are their any other options out there? I rebuild mine from 4 sets and picked the best of each. My door still drops a little after opening it and I've adjusted them more than I care to admit.

The problem with adjusting them is that the door will inevitably sag after you align the door and tighten them down. So it ends up being a guessing game as to how high you have to adjust them to account for the sag. I'd like to have something that opens and shuts like a modern car door. Will it take the Ring Brothers hinges to do that?

I'm still building but my RB hinges are rock solid. I like the stop positions. Door doesn't drop at all.

100% what he said! I'm still building also, but glad I'm no longer screwing with stock or repaired hinges.

I was going to use repop stock hinges but decided to get the RB ones, they came the other day, what an incredibly well built product, they are sweet, they are pricey but when you have them in your hand you will actually realize that its not a bad price.
