Best male hardy kiwi?

Thank you for accepting me on the forum! I’ve been a long time reader but haven’t made an account until just now. I keep reading about hardy kiwi on this forum and its quite exciting the idea of growing a tropical tasting fruit in my climate. But I also have read a lot of people lose their male hardy kiwis and they are less vigorous than the females. Is there a “gold standard” male hardy kiwi that flowers for longer, is vigorous and very cold hardy that is generally recommended? I’m considering getting an Anna and Geneve-3 hardy kiwi females.

Meader Male does well for me, it is quite widely distributed too

Thank you! Meader definitely came up the most when looking for named male cultivars, looks like its for a reason.
