Best replacement skids for '67 10M 5?

What do guys recommend for replacement skids? I noticed today that they are almost paper thin.

On gravel, asphalt, concrete ??
Looking for a roller, skid ... ??
Something pre-built or custom ??
The best isn't the best for everyone for every surface for every machine.

Smooth asphalt driveway, paver sidewalks that are slightly shifted, and 3/4 inch curb at EOD. The stocks skids have worked ok, this will be the 3rd set, just looking at all the options.

I use armor skids on most of my toro's , the ride up over uneven surfaces really well, I have a lot of that so armor skids work well for me and they are thicker than stock toro skids so they should last longer. on the powershift I have micah II skids, poly skids custom cut by joe and shaped similar to armor skids. they make the powershift feel light compared to the stock skids and I think the help make turning even easier despite having the differential kit

current machines
1-toro2450E-38419. 1-toro3000E-38435. 1-toro 3650E-38445
2-toro 521E-38052. 1-toro xl824pt 38086
