Recommended brand of butyl tape?

Good morning - first things first, I did a search several different ways and failed to find a specific answer to this question.

Is there a preferred or "better" brand of butyl tape that I should buy? I need to replace all of our roof vents and want to be sure that I do the job correctly. I know that I should use butyl tape and then I intend to cover the screws with proflex in order to ensure a complete and water-proof seal.

Your suggestions and recommendations are greatly appreciated!
Thank you.

I have purchased maybe 2x50' rolls, never gave a thought to the brand nor quality, but they both worked. https://www.amazon.com/Colormetrics-...rds=butyl+tape

I have used this with great success, but the 1" version that Jim linked might provide a little more flexibility upon install. Trim off any excess.
