Default Strut recommendations?

Hello. I am shopping around for new struts for my '96 Jetta Trek and I am trying to decide between a few brands.
I like to drive my Jetta hard almost half the time during daily driving and I also take it canyon driving in Angeles National Forest every now and then. So I want something that will hold up well to my driving habits.

So far I have narrowed it down to...
KYB GR-2, Koni STR.T, and MOOG.

I hear a lot of good things about KYB and Koni, but I spotted these complete strut assemblies on RockAuto by MOOG. The thing that interests me about those is the ease of installation, new coil spring, and price. What I want to know is if anyone has had MOOG brand struts and are they good? I really do want to know before I settle for KYB's.

Welp, looks like I am going with Koni struts, because I bought them already lol. They were at 20 percent off on their website, not sure if they still are
