Spal, Derale, Flex-A-Lite, or Mishimoto Radiator Fans?

Aside from trying to adapt OEM Fans to our cars, I know many have tried the major aftermarket fans... was wondering what your experience might be with these four (Spal, Derale, Flex-a-Lite, Mishimoto)? Quality, performance, durability, and a manufacturer who stands behind their product are my initial questions. Have you used a big single, a pair of smaller fans, and did they deliver the CFM you needed? Also, did you use a aftermarket ready-made fan controller or did you go custom? And lastly, do you think these four companies are 100% truthful when they state XXXX CFM, knowing that most likely that's a fan rated in a free-standing mode, no radiator or shroud in most cases?

Personally, I'm dealing with a BBC with iron heads, serpentine belts, and Vintage Air. My radiator is a Cold Case with 2-tubes of 1.250" diameter.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences.
