Best brand Toilet Fill pipe na Ballcock

I am tired to replace the crappy toilet fill pipe-float-valve. They are high tech, made of minute plastic parts that get slimed and warped in a few years. The old brass stuff lasted longer than the mortgage. The rubber flap is another sorry thing, there must be a better type of rubbery material that what is commonly used.
Has anyone a suggestion for suppliers of good quality tank valves? Will a real plumbing supply have anything better or is the same HD stuff?
Thanks

yes a good ole hardware store will have them, so will plumbing supply house. You could replace 5 or 6 of the fluidmaster types before you recouped the cost of the high end ballcock. Flappers jsut make sure you get the right one and if they have a choice between a 99c one and a $3 one look and see if the more expensive one is more plyable or not.
