nissin vs tokico

Im doing a fork upgrade on my bike. 05 636 forks, i already have the stock tokico calipers.
I have heard that the 07-08 nissins are a recommended upgrade.
Is there really that bigbof a difference, enough to make me shell out 150$ more for better calipers?
Opinions and perspectives appreciated.
Thanks for reading.

It is a huge difference!!! I had tried everything on my 05 from countless hours bleeding, rebuilding factory master cylinder, new pads and eventually a Brembo master cylinder but, nothing worked. The lever was always soft and going back to the bar. Found some nissins on ebay for $65 shipped about 6 months ago and instant improvement. Rock solid lever and phenomenal stopping power!! This was the best single improvement that I made to my bike.
