SlowButSteady is on a distinguished road
I installed a set last summer. I got a quadruple set of their #13 clutch (they only have single #13 clutches in the catalog, but they have doubles, triples, and quads if you ask them). All stainless (except the grips), and seemingly bulletproof. Great price, too. So far, they've performed flawlessly. Just be aware that they designed to be installed so that the handles fold down when pressed away from the tail end of the line (usually this is forward), rather than toward the tail end. This is the reverse of some clutches, such as the ones I replaced.
