Edit: Clutch line installed. Review on my third post vvv

I'm in the market for a coated, braided stainless steel clutch line for my STI. The two that I've come across are the Goodridge clutch line and the Mach V Motorsports clutch line. Will I be compromising build quality or reliability going with one or the other? All in all, the Goodridge is a few bucks cheaper. I may end up flipping a coin to make my decision, unless someone has a solid reason why one should be bought over the other.

Thanks y'all!

DMD

I went with goodridge just because it was the same as my brake lines

Goodridge lines are dot approved (or at least meet dot specs)

i've got the Mach V clutch line (and their matching brake lines). no issues so far. been on for over a year now. definitely firmed up the clutch feel. easy to install and no debris gets into the braiding thanks to the red sheathing around it. quality is very good. install was relatively painless (once the TMIC is out of the way). you'll probably be fine with either, but im just +1 for Mach V.

Thanks guys. I already flipped the coin and went with the Goodridge line. I found one for ten bucks less than the MachV line. I appreciate the replies.

Please report back on how much of a pita the install is. Thanks.

Update! I got my clutch line installed last night and this is now a review! The install of the clutch line itself was super easy. Unscrew two connections and screw the new one on. It literally took all of fifteen minutes. The hard part was bleeding the system, which required me to remove the clutch slave cylinder. Altogether, the install was fairy straight forward. I didn't run into any real time consuming problems.

The clutch pedal feels amazing! Much more even pedal pressure throughout the range of motion. No more squishy clutch feel. It's not any harder to push in, but it definitely has a more solid feel, especially when pushing the clutch hard and fast. I would recommend to anyone wanting to remove some slop from their clutch pedal.
Here is my detailed install writeup, hopefully it helps any of you all wanting to get a clutch line too:
