Clutch Brand Opinions Please

My clutch is beginning to go. Normal driving is fine, but on hard launches it definitely slips. Also, my throw-out bearing is going fast. It will last me a good while longer with good driving, but since I just came upon some graduation money, I'm considering just going for one now.

Here are a few I've been considering:
-Clutch Masters Stage 1 FX100
-Centerforce Stage 1 Kit
-SPEC Euro Stage 2+

So, are any of these worth while or should I look in to something else. I'd like to supercharge her eventually, but seeing as I'll be going off to college I have a good idea that will *never* happen on this car, so I don't need anything that will hold massive amounts of power. Something that can hold somewhat over stock power with no slippage at all on a full on hard launch, but still be comfortable and have very smooth engagement for normal driving. Also, looking for something thats not too hard on the wallet either.

Opinions?

I've read that going to the M3 clutch is supposed to be nice, but you have to upgrade to the M3 slave cylinder otherwise you have a very stiff pedal. Another company (forgot who, maybe UUC) does a lightwheight flywheel/M5 clutch that is supposed to be 100% top notch.

I agree with bimrpwr, but my friend has the UUC flywheel/M5 combo and it's nice.
