Default hub adapter vs spoke clamp

Ive got a bit of decision to make. Ive been trying to organize a lot of parts to make my bike much more off road capable and much better on hills. Of course recently i stripped the threads on my chain tensioner trying to keep it from popping off. I realized I did not have the sprocket trued on the vertical plane. I'd like your opinions on whether 1: I go with the manic mechanic hub adapter + a pirate cycles 56 tooth sprocket coming out at around 110 dollars or so because of all the machining they have to do. or 2: purchase a 56 tooth for around $30 that's fit for the spoke clamp set up from gasbike. My real question is does the reliability of the hub adapter in terms of wheel concentricity and the fact that it drives the wheel and not the spokes, offset the price? This forum has been awesome in the past and I've learned so much from other posts. Sorry that all i have to contribute is more questions though :/
