Is any particular fork brace better than the other?

I am looking at a fork brace for my Wee as my next farkle. I am not aware of any others besides the Superbrace and the KB brace sold by Murph. Other than the $25 price difference between the two, does one really hold an advantage over the other?

The KB looks a little beefier and more "industrial" looking where the Superbrace is a little thinner and probably would not be seen as much. Is the KB one in theory stiffer and therefore better?

Thank you for the input.

I got Rick's forkbrace and have been very happy with it. I haven't compared it to the alternatives, but for $85 (shipped) it's a great deal:

Rick's fork brace works fine for me. I have no experiences with any other fork braces though.

The KB brace is adjustable left to right the other two are not, you put them on and hope they don't bind your lower fork legs.

Yeah, I also have Ricks fork brace - very happy with it, a well machined bit of kit and WAY cheaper than the alternatives!
