    There's at least one thread here about Techniclutch.

    Basically buy cheap and buy twice.

    Haha thought it was worth an ask! I had messaged him:

    Thanks for the message
    the kit is made by Nationwide and is rated to 520nm, biting point is in the middle and the pedal is slightly stiffer than normal
    gearbox chatter can sometime be heard on idle depending on wear in the gearbox
    kind regards
    Peter

    LUK are currently in the process of taking them through the courts for selling items marked as LUK kits.

    My clutch from them lasted 2 days before there was absolutely no friction material left

    Also heard of them selling fake Sachs kits too.
    Best to avoid and save the hassle.
