Default What Clutch Master to use?

Trying to determine best hydraulic clutch MC to use. Either Tilton or Wilwood. What are you guys using and how is the engagement, pedal feel (modern factory feel, softer, harder like mechanical)?

The MC's i'm looking at are:
Tilton 75-750 (3/4 bore w/1.1" stroke) or 76-875 (7/8 bore w/1.1" stroke)
Wilwood 260-15091 (3/4 bore w/1.25 stoke)

I know typically 3/4 bore is preferred, but if the stroke is borderline not long enough, bore size can be increased to provide more flow.

I used a Tick Performance master setup for a 4th gen camaro (Tilton 7/8") with my Monster LT1-S clutch/T56 Magnum combo. Pedal effort is perfect, not too heavy and easy to modulate. Clutch is fully disengaged well before the pedal is fully depressed.
