Default Dripless shaft log

Any Reccomendation on the best dripless shaft log? Upgrading this winter and want some input.

I have only seen and used simplan by simplex, but they work very well. I will have to see next time the boat is out of the water and the shafts are pulled to see how they compare to stuffing boxes with regard to shaft wear. However, they are completely dry and I have never seen one leak.

I have PSS on mine, I get occasional clogs in my water line, but it may be due more to a engine/zinc issue than the PSS
