Default Which clutch for an old Fox

It's apparently time for me to buy a new clutch. I currently have a Centerforce DF which has served me well for the last 7 or 8 years but has begun to slip at the 3-4 shift during acceleration. The price for the same clutch has jumped up by a C-note since I bought the one I have. Are there any better alternatives in the same price range? I'm at 300 rwhp and torque is @ 310 . Thanks in advance.
Paul

If your on a budget, and this is a dd, I've had the stock replacement in my car for 7 yrs now with no signs of slip yet. I'm at the same power level as you, and visit the track 3-4 times a year running slicks. It's been holding up quite well.

Thanks for your answer. This is my second Centerforce DF that has worn quicker than expected. I had a Ford Racing clutch that lasted an eternity many moons ago, so I think I'll go that route.
