Default 429 New harmonic balancer

I need a new balancer for my 429 so I started looking and found confusion. I know that is not a good brand so I thought I would ask what is from the experts. There are rubber ones, fluid filled ones, $80 ones, $550 ones, black, chrome and other ones.
Some are good for 10,000 revs and some for 12.500. (Now that's some big block!!!!!!)
The fluid ones claim they are so good they will even protect and extend the life of your motor??
So are they worth the money? Does price and or brand matter? Is there a type to avoid, etc etc. I am looking forward to getting edumakeated on the subject. Thanks in advance John

Good question.... but no answer here. My builder wanted to install a "Rattler" brand, but at $350....I said no.

BHJ are good, ATI are better, you are protecting the crankshaft, spend what you can. Its a vital part of your engine.

As you slide down the Banister of Life, may the splinters never be pointing the wrong way
