Default Is there a best brand for sway bars and end links?

I plan on upgrading my front and rear sway bars and end links when I install my coilovers on my WRX and I was wondering if there was a best brand for sway bars and end links. The only brand I know is cobb and perrin. I know the sway bars come in like 19/23mm etc but I dont really understand the concept behind the different sizes so if someone can explain it to me Id really appreciate it. My car is a daily driver and I plan on doing the occasional auto-x. Car is basically for my pleasure and nothing too serious competition wise.

I don't know if there's any "best", but I have always had success with Whiteline bars and Kartboy endlinks. I've heard good things about the Racecomp sways too.

I have a whiteline in the front with stock endlinks and a perrin in the back with their endlinks. both function as they are supposed to with very little increase in n/v/h.

ive been leaning at getting some of the new RCE sways. i like the diameters and stiffness options they give you. plus the "washers" to stop the bars from walking side to side.

its more preference than whats "best"

I enjoyed my perrin 22mm (front and rear adjustable with endlinks) when i was on stock tires. I wanted bigger and better once i got springs and summer tires, thinking RCE too.
