Which clutch should I get?

This might be in the wrong section, but I'm looking into getting a new clutch for my 2010 MTX. I'd like one a bit stronger than stock because I plan on going FI sometime in the future, but I don't want one that makes it undriveable. From the research I've done it loks like a stage 3 should be around right, but I don't know which brand I should go with. What are some ups and downs for each?

I'd go w/ Exedy's oem replacement. Don't forget to order a throw out bearing.
