I usually use Double Line, but Ryan brought in some other that he reports Mr. Kimura uses, so I'm guessing it's good (I've yet to use it).  Aoki is next on my list when I get too lazy to sift my own ingredients.  You should be able to find a load of suppliers in California.

I have been using Boon mix for 3 years, in Australia and it works better than anything else I have tried.
