SSBC or PowerSlot rotors/brakes?

I'm looking at needed to do my brakes in the coming months. I'll need new rotors so I'm looking at either going with the SSBC or the PowerSlot rotors and pad sets. The SSBC package I'm looking at this one: https://www.xtremediesel.com/ssbc-short-stop-4-wheel-kit-a236106x?variant_id=109104 .



The other option, and at a higher cost, are the PowerSlot (now StopTech) rotors and Hawk pads. I know that many--with positive reports--have used these in the past, but over the years I'm wondering if other alternatives are just as good.



Application is 2002 F350 SRW, mostly daily driving, occasional towing with non-braked < 3k# trailer or a few times a years a braked travel trailer.

I've had a couple different brands between my trucks. The biggest difference I have found between the slotted ones are if they are cryo'ed or not. The cryogenic treated ones do not seem to warp.

Thanks for the heads up on that. As I recall what was perceived as warping with pulsations in the pedal was, in most cases, material transfer/buildup on the rotors themselves from the pads. But either way, if the cryo'ed ones lessen that experience that's good to know.
