What model of Alexa plate is the best?

I need to buy plate for Alexa. There a lots of them on the market, but which is most universal. I hear there are different kind of Alexa (Plus and Studio). Cam-tec makes plate for Sony V-mount and Alexa in one model. Could you help me to choose best option please?
