Recommend a good quality frost-free sillcock?

I have a couple of the 1/4-turn HD ones now, and they suck. Always leak when closed. Anyone know of 1 or 2 decent brands I can get?

Thanks.

I've used woodford brand and have been happy with them.

With any FF silcock you have to make sure to slope them so they drain to the outside, and of course, have to remove the hose before any chance of freezing weather.

I too use Woodford and love them. I have tried the ones carried at my local Lowes and they do not flow anywhere near the same amount of water and I've had several break in my rental houses. So, I've gone back to Woodford even though I have to order them online as nobody locally stocks them.
