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.
Have a great day!

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