Default Oil Filters....good ones, bad ones

Since we talk alot about engine oils....how about filters.
I run the HP6 by FRAM on my motors....so far so good.

I used to use Fram HP-4 with great success. Now that I upgraded the oiling system, I switched to HP-6.

Interesting read, Especially the conclusion page. They did not mention the HP 6. If it is constructed like the other Frams, it may be one to avoid.

Is the Napa/Wix the only other manufacturer making an HP 6 sized filter?
