Hahas, in Melbourne the shops are on the fringes of the countryside while I live right in the city. Plus I'm not impressed with the service (as many other club mates aren't).
In Singapore, I could try them. I'm not sure if it would help though since my main issue is the stabilisers coming loose over a the course of a full shooting session.
Stabilisers coming loose is something we all have to deal with. Having a block of wax to hand and rubbing the thread before you put it in each time will certainly ensure it stays firm. Having said that, I have never had an issue with my stabilisers, on both recurve and compound. I have owned HMC+, and they were fine, and more recently CEX5s, and they were (And still are) fine. I would try to ignore the little niggle of "will it come loose", as to me it seems to be holding you back from getting anything.
Krossen look nice. I've seen one or two sets knocking around.
Of the ones you suggest I would recommend CEX5s - they do the job well, they look nice, they are cheap. I've never had a problem with the thread.
Ports 595, FITA 1351, FITA 18 574.

Thanks Brum. Seems that the score on the CEX is tied at 1 for, 1 against. I guess I'm mainly annoyed by my current stabilisers that come loose without warning. Suddenly I loose the arrow and realise it sounded totally wrong, then search the bow and find the stabiliser loose.
Any more votes for HMC/CEX? (I think the good doinker models are firmly out of my reach, considering I need to get a whole set.)
