What MLS gaskets for GT40's?

Seems some people have had issues with lifting heads and popping 9333 gaskets, even with flat surfaces and head studs. So I think I'd rather go MLS. What MLS gaskets is everyone using?

I use pro comp ones. They are cheap and have held up fine. I have an extra set I bought just to have in case I had issues, but the first set has held up for a year. There only like 55 a set

With iron GT40 heads?

I'm currently running 9333's on my motor with aluminum TFS heads. But the motor I'm building has GT40 iron's. It's the thin deck GT40 heads that have me skeptical of the 9333's.
