What are some good rail + on/off ASA combos?

I've realized that to run my 68/45 Crossfire on my Blazer comfortably, i'll need a rail/ASA since a duckbill makes for too long of a setup.

I haven't really had much experience in the past few years with rails and ASAs since giving up tourney ball. So i'm wondering, what are some durable, quality, and not too expensive rail/ASAs out there? I haven't really dealt with many of the companies that make these products in that time as well.

Two in particular have caught my eye, the Evil rail and On/off and the Eclipse Rail and On/Off. However, I have a couple questions about the mounting of both.

The Evil rail appears to hold the ASA on with a single set screw straight through the rail. I'm curious though if this single set screw is going to keep the ASA on the rail securely enough and if i'll have problems with it loosening and the ASA wiggling?

The Eclipse rail and on/off is slightly more expensive, and it's rail secures the ASA with two set screws through the side of the ASA to push the dovetail apart. Now, what makes me leary with this deisgn is that I recently got burnt on a CP rail that uses the same design, and the dovetail seemed to be permenantly expanded so it would no longer fit on the ASA. I'm wondering if that happens over time with the design, or if that was just some idiot before me cranking down the screws too hard.

I've found that the newer CP rails and on/offs are really nice. The rails use 3 screws through the side to hold the on/off. Also the newer cp on/offs bleed the air out of your gun when u turn them off.

I like the Unimount 2.

Much better than the original Unimount. Don't have to take everything apart to get it off like the old one.

Here's my Blazer with Unimount 2 for your viewing pleasure.

I love the Eclipse rails best of all. The only thing is that they are kinda pricey.

I have a New Designz on and off on my EBlazer and love it. It holds tight with bearings and the best part I like about it is that when you turn off the air it degasses the system. My CP doesn't do that. I'm not sure about the other systems but it's a real nice feature.

Ah... I forgot to mention that. The Unimount 2 also bleeds the system.
