DP Gaskets: AR Bomb Proof Vs. BMS Kit

As the title states...

I am finally installing my castles AR Down pipes this weekend. Currently I have a brand new BMS Gasket kit but would it be a better idea to purchase the AR Bomb proof set? I don't want any leaks or long term problems. Thanks

I've heard a few people having issues with AR's gaskets actually. BMS is good. I have them, no issues.

the AR gaskets suck. They fell apart like paper mache after a single installation. I actually prefer the OEM gaskets.

AR uses the same gaskets everyone else uses, BMS gaskets haven't been around long enough to judge but they seem pretty good. If you use the correct tension on the bolts and the pipes fit well enough, it won't really matter.
