A little bit of help for choosing Powe Tubes

Hi Guys! a lot of time since my last post...

Well let's go to the point.... I need change the tubes of my Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier and I'm verry clear about the pre amp tubes.... i'm gonna use JJ 12AX7 for the pre amp, loop and phase inverter.

But!.. I'm not so clear about the power Tubes... I'm really undecided between the JJ 6L6GE and the Winged C 6L6GE.

Alejandro Silva, is a really good Chilean Guitar player who has been played with Steve Vai and Joe Satrini when they came to Chile, also he is a very respected Amp Builder here... Even Striani loves his amps when he tried it during the sound check for his first concert with Alejandro.... well... Alejandro told me that he Loves the sound of the JJ EL34 (he don't use 6L6 for his amps) but the problem is that the JJ have shorter life time and a bad sounding end of their usefull life. So he recomend me the Svetlana, Electro Harmonix or the Winged C power tubes, because they sound good and the building quality seems to be better. But he said "Al what I'm saying is my experience with JJ EL34... I never tried the 6L6"

So..... what do yo think wizard guys?.... Wich is my best option for the power section of my Dual Rectifier?.... JJs or Winged C?

And for the Rectifier tubes?.... I wanna keep the same model... but which is better?.... JJs or Electro Harmonix???

I'll be waiting your answers.... this is a little bit urgent...
