Default Recommend a Snare Throw-off

I am putting together a custom 14x6 snare and I am looking at different strainers. I don't really use the strainer much at all, so I'm not wanting to spend a ton of money of it. Maybe $35 or less for one. Can anyone here recommend a good strainer and butt for under $35? The snare hasn't been drilled for anything at all yet, so I will be able to use whatever kind of strainer at this point. Thanks for any help, I've looked at a bunch, but I'm not sure what's considered good and not good. I don't want to go cheap and get something crappy, but I also don't need a trick throw or something like that, way too expensive for me.

I recently replaced a throw on my Yamaha snare with a Gibraltar SC-STO Deluxe Snare Throw-Off, I was limited in what I could use by the holes drilled in the snare, but I have to say it's surprisingly sturdy, and looks good.

However, at this stage if you have no drillings, you're lucky that you have a great range of choices.

Best I have ever used is the DW Mag throw off - and with the 3 position butt plate (loose, medium, tight) you'll want one of these on every snare you own. I have two so far! $45 at musicians friend, or memphis drum shop - which is just above your budget, but hey you were going to have to spend $10 on somebody else's butt plate anyway :)
