Default Arrow & String Level Recommendations

I just bought the R.S. Nok EZ & Snap on String Level Combo. It was made in China. Not sure how accurate the levels are, but the string level attaches too loosely for any accuracy. Had to add a layer of vinyl tape to the slot so it would "snap" on. Not sure if the others are made in China or not. I'd be interested in recommendations for a reasonable quality level set.

Thanks for the responses. The string level is loose on the bow string & very tight on the center serving. Unfortunately, the serving is too short above & below the D-loop to use it as is. I'm going to re-serve the center serving a bit longer to allow use of the string level. I'm also going to check it for accuracy.

I have a couple of Medicine Stone levels that have a large thumb screw that clamps to any string diameter and worked very well fo me untill I purchased this unit:
